first_imgElaborating on the importance of Dhawans match-winning Elaborating on the importance of Dhawans match-winning innings of 60, Kohli said, “Shikhar is someone who always strikes the ball really well and it is just a matter of one innings for him and you can see what he can do once he gets into form. He is a big match player. We are banking on him in the World T20. He has played really well in the IPL, he knows all the grounds and the angles, conditions and the pitches and he has played against all the bowlers from all the teams.” Since Dhawan was hitting the ball well, Kohli said he decided to just stick around and provide him support. “It was absolutely wonderful batting from him and I am glad to see that he took the team to a situation from where we could not lose. Hats off to him for the way he played. I just needed to stick in there. My job was to hang in there and let Shikhar do what he does best which is to attack the bowlers. “I think that is where a little bit of experience counts where you understand the situation. You realise that once a guy is going really good at the other end, you just rotate the strike and hit the odd boundary in between so that he doesnt feel pressure,” the dashing batsman said.
