Shikhar Dhawan fifty
Shikhar Dhawan became 2nd Indian to score fifty 50+ scores

Punjab Kings head coach Trevor Bayliss has said that Shikhar Dhawan can still play for India if he performs well in the Indian Premier League 2023. PBKS will play their first match against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 1.

Speaking to PTI, Bayliss said everyone respects Dhawan. He is the second-highest run-scorer in the IPL, amassing 6,244 runs in 206 matches.

“He is respected by everyone and positively influences the young stars. Dhawan will do well as a captain,” said Bayliss.

Dhawan’s international career is almost over, but the new head coach of Punjab is backing him to make another comeback.

“There is no reason why he can’t play for India. Hopefully, Dhawan will score a lot of runs in the upcoming season for us.”

Bayliss has taken over from Anil Kumble, whose contract was not renewed.
