Shikhar Dhawan as important for India as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma says Harbhajan Singh

Veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh feels Shikhar Dhawan’s contribution to the Indian team especially in white-ball formats is as important as that of skipper Virat Kohli or his deputy Rohit Sharma. 

Opener Dhawan is allegedly making a comeback to the Indian team after getting injured during the World Cup.

In a statement, Harbhajan said “Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma are some of the finest batsmen that India has seen, and have proven to be one of India’s best opening pairs. Shikhar Dhawan’s contribution to the game is as important as that of Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli. Be it T20 or 50 overs, irrespective of the format, Shikhar is really good. According to me, there is no better opener than Shikhar Dhawan, along with Rohit Sharma, in any format – T20 and 50 overs. If he continues working on his fitness in the coming 2-3 years, I think he will be unstoppable.”
