Competition in team is keeping everyone on their toes: Shikhar Dhawan
Mount Maunganui (New Zealand), Jan 25 (CRICKETNMORE): Opener Shikhar Dhawan on Friday hailed the competition in the Indian team with upcoming openers Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill rising up the ranks pretty fast.
Shaw made his Test debut in October and Gill earned a maiden call-up for the ongoing ODI series against New Zealand.
Both batsmen were part of India's triumphant campaign in the U-19 Word Cup in New Zealand last year.
"I think the youngsters are maturing really quickly in Indian cricket and that creates a lot of competition in the team, everyone has to be on their toes," Dhawan said ahead of the second ODI against New Zealand here on Saturday.
