A video showing former Indian cricketers talk about Shikhar Dhawan being the new face of Indian cricket.

His talent was unquestionable, but Shikhar Dhawan's success can be attributed to the fact that he has started to value his wicket a lot more, feels former India batsman VVS Laxman.

"I have known him for many years. He is a talented and skillful player. He has done really well for Delhi, North Zone and now Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL. He made an impressive debut against Australia. The only change that I see in him is that he values his wicket even more," Laxman told PTI Bhasha over phone.

"He is not giving away his wicket easily which has helped him to convert good starts into big knocks. He has learnt to respect his wicket," Laxman commented.
