Shikhar Dhawan burst into the scene by smashing the fastest Test century by a player on debut. He managed to score a whopping 187 runs in just 174 balls. But his ODI debut, which was also his international debut, couldn’t have been more different. It came in a home series against Australia in 2010 and he opened the innings. He faced off the first ball from Clint McKay and was dismissed off the second, thus scoring a duck on debut.
But his story is also an inspiration for players toiling it out in the domestic circuit waiting for an international breakthrough. Before Dhawan’s Test exploits and resurgence in limited overs, he had spent a better part of his 20s playing domestic cricket with opening slots being taken by Virendra Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir. It was also in this period that he earned his nickname ‘Gabbar.’
Not only this, Dhawan also celebrated the Birthday with his family. He has posted a video where he is celebrating Birthday with his daughter and son Jolar.
