Dhawan said a big thing
Dhawan (Shikhar Dhawan) said in the press conference after the match, ‘There is always pressure in international cricket and the good thing is that as an experienced player I know how to deal with this pressure well and the other thing is that the experienced players If I am, I know what kind of shot to play on a wicket, we can read the wicket well and can tell it well in the batting unit. This is what we did and it worked for us as well. He said, “Of course, when I settled at the crease, I had enough shots to play so that I could score runs.”
Stayed positive in T20 series as well
After being dropped from the T20 squad only after the first match, Dhawan said that he kept himself positive. He said, ‘When I was not playing in the T20 series, I kept myself positive.

I knew that if I get an opportunity, I will take advantage of it.
