Twitter Reacts On Shikhar Dhawan’s 35th Birthday
Dhawan was the player of the tournament for team India in the 2013 and 2017 champions trophy respectively in England. Also, he was an integral part of team India in the 2015 ICC cricket world cup where India reached the semi-finals. In the longest format of the game, Dhawan made the headlines when he scored an outrageous Test hundred on his debut against the mighty Australian side at Mohali.
Since then Dhawan has had an up and down Test career but has continued to flourish in the shorter formats. The consistent opening batsman has so far played 139 ODI matches in which he has scored 5808 runs at an average of 45 including 17 hundred.
In 62 T20Is he has amassed 1589 runs at a strike rate of 128 runs and will be hoping to cement his place for the next year’s T20 world cup in India. Talking about his Test career, Dhawan has 2315 runs to his name and has scored 7 centuries in the toughest format of the game.
On top of that, he holds an impressive record in IPL as he has always been amongst the runs in the biggest T20 league. As Dhawan celebrates his 35th birthday we take a look at how his current and former teammates wished him on Twitter.
