Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan will return to Punjab Cricket Association stadium on Saturday where he made his scintillating Test debut by scoring the fastest century by a debutant against Australia in March earlier this year.
 
“I have great memories here. I made my debut at this ground and got a century. That knock is still fresh in my mind. It feels it was just the other day when I scored that century,” Dhawan was quoted as saying by Times of India.
 
“This ground has been lucky for me. I would like to repeat the same things and score another century,” he added.
 
Dhawan said that since his Test debut at Mohali, he has become mentally tougher but his style and skills are same.
 
“I feel the change is more in the mind, skills are same,” he said.
 
“I have become mature as a batsman and I value my wicket more. I am hungry for runs. I have changed some things in the nets, my concentration is much better now,” he said.
 
Speaking about the last game, Dhawan said, “Earlier we have chased big targets. The idea was to just play ball by ball, and just go out there and enjoy.”
