India in West Indies: Shikhar Dhawan looks to surpass Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni in elite ODI batting list

[ad_1]

Shikhar Dhawan will be hoping to use all his experience when he leads India in the upcoming 3-match ODI series against the West Indies, starting July 22. Dhawan has been given the opportunity to captain the team in the absence of star players, including full-time skipper Rohit Sharma and star batter Virat Kohli.

Shikhar Dhawan is closing in on milestones as the stand-in captain looks to put behind a disappointing England tour wherein he managed just 41 runs, including 2 single-digit scores, across 3 ODIs. Dhawan returned to the ODI set up for the series in England amid questions over his future. The left-handed star will be looking to prove his naysayers wrong in the West Indies.

Shikhar Dhawan is all set to become the most capped Indian player in ODIs in the West Indies. Having played 14 matches so far, he will go past Virat Kohli, who holds the record with 15 matches in the Caribbean.

Dhawan has managed just 348 runs in 14 matches in ODIs in the West Indies. The senior opener averages just 26.76 and he will be looking to make amends as the onus of scoring big for the young team will be on him. Dhawan is fifth on the list of Indian batters with most runs in the West Indies in ODIs.

Former captain Virat Kohli holds the record for the most runs by a batter in ODIs in the West Indies with 790 runs, including 4 hundreds at a staggering average of over 70. Dhawan has an opportunity to leapfrog the likes of Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni to the 2nd spot in the elite list of Indian batters.

MOST RUNS BY INDIA BATTERS IN ODIS iN WI

Virat Kohli – 790 runs in 15 matches
MS Dhoni – 458 runs in 15 matches
Yuvraj Singh – 419 runs in 14 matches
Rohit Sharma – 408 runs in 14 matches
Shikhar Dhawan – 348 runs in 14 matches

Dhawan has a good record against the West Indies at home, scoring 2 hundreds.

India will have a relatively young squad in the absence of the likes of Rohit, Kohli, KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah.

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan are among the options to partner Dhawan at the top of the order while the likes of Shryeas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav will form the crux of the middle order.

All eyes will be on all-rounder Deepak Hooda as he is expected to return to the playing XI after having sat out during the England ODIs and the last 2 T20Is. Sanju Samson is also back to the ODI set-up with the wicketkeeper-batter having played only one one-day international so far — against Sri Lanka in 2021.
