Even before England vs India test series begin there were question marks on Shikhar Dhawan game outside the subcontinent with many questioning his technique saying that he doesn’t have the technique to score runs outside the subcontinent and it is proven right again when Shikhar Dhawan gets out cheaply in the first innings of ongoing fifth test match between England vs India at the oval. Shikhar dhawan is one of the most favorite player of Indian team head coach Ravi shastri that why even after failing poorly in south africa, england, Australia four years ago shikhar dhawan is still in the team because the coach backs him and call him the impact player who just takes away the game away from the opposition in a matter of sessions but what Ravi shastri doesn’t take in account is against which teams and where does shikhar dhawan played those impact innings mostly those impact innings came against weak srilankan and extremely weak Afghanistan teams their bowling if compared will be even weaker than bowling of some IPL teams those performances against such weaker teams make him an impact player and draw comparison to virender sehwag who was an impact player for India when he was playing the only difference between shikhar dhawan and virender sehwag is that virender sehwag use to play impact innings against strong bowling lineups of Australia, south Africa, England, Pakistan whereas “gabbar” the impact player use to play these impact innings against weak bowling opposition and whenever he comes up against good strong bowling lineup his game gets exposed pretty quickly after this series Indian selectors should move on from shikhar dhawan and they should look to find another opener.
