“Rohit sharma is not my wife”- Shikhar Dhawan on need to be in constant touch with opening partner

“Baatein karke kya hoga? Woh meri biwi thodi na hain! (What’s the point in discussing things? Rohit isn’t my wife) If you play with someone for years, you’ll know him inside out. With Rohit, there’s nothing special that we do. It’s just the mindset. Even if I bat with Prithvi, the game remains the same. If one person gets going, the other man plays a supporting role,” he replied to a Media organization.

Shikhar Dhawan is the most valuable player for the Indian team in ICC tournaments. He has performed strongly in all major ICC tournaments played for the country and now he is ready for the forthcoming World Cup to be held in England and Wales starting from May 30. As an opener in ICC World Cup to get the team’s success, Dhawan will have to build a great partnership with Rohit Sharma. The communication and understanding between Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit  Sharma have been impeccable on the pitch, but the former isn’t of the opinion that he needs to develop the same off it.

Ahead of the event, Dhawan was asked if he has been in touch with his opening partner Rohit, especially considering that the ICC World Cup is only a couple of weeks away, the southpaw laughed it off saying Rohit isn’t his wife that the two would need to be in touch off the field on a regular basis.

If one person gets going, the other man plays a supporting role,” he replied to a Media organization.

At the pressure on himself before playing in the big tournament, Dhawan said, “What’s the pressure? It’s my daily job, I’m sure that I should take care of common things and my mind is always clean, Sometimes you make runs, sometimes it does not happen, but I always keep quiet, pay attention to the things on which I have to work and then try to give my best. I don’t believe in worrying too much,” he explained.

The 12th season of IPL has been great for Dhawan. He batted strongly in 16 matches for Delhi and scored a total of 521 runs, including five half-centuries. He believes that the superb form of the IPL will keep him in good shape in the upcoming tournament. He also believes that Rather than T-20 playing in ODI format is not a big challenge for him.
