It was very heartening to see Shikhar Dhawan score a magnificent hundred on Test debut with near-perfect shot selection, decisive footwork and strokes that had both authority and grace. He has proved my faith again, 'that if one has the talent and work ethics of a professional, one will get at least one opportunity to excel. And the one who grabs that opportunity is the one who shows patience, resilience and persistence to pursue his goal with a disciplined lifestyle and that of mind’. Dhawan has those attributes. Hats off to him! His innings served as a great lesson for youngsters waiting in the wings.
