BCCI didn't pick the veteran left-handed sensation, Shikhar Dhawan for the upcoming ICC Men's ODI World Cup 2023. Dhawan, who is holding sensational ICC stats, failed to impress the selectors for no one knows why. He may not in his peak but no one can doubt the confidence and mentality Dhawan holds when he plays for his country. Whenever he got the chance, he delivered. When the entire batting team failed to perform in the biggest stages, it was the Gabbar who stood tall. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma also have some records to show but they too failed in some instances, when the team needed them. The 2015 World Cup Semi-Final is the prime example of that. In this article, we'll check out the insane stats of Shikhar Dhawan in the ICC events.

Shikhar Dhawan's Insane Stats at the ICC Events:

Despite never being tagged in the same league as Rohit and Kohli, Dhawan has produced wonderful numbers in his ODI career. 6793 runs in 167 matches at an average of 44.11 and a strike rate of 91.35 with 17 and 39 fifties. There's not much to complain about there.

He has played 10 World Cup matches, smashing 537 runs at an average of 53.70 with three hundreds to his name. Dhawan scored a superb 137 against South Africa in 2015 in Melbourne. He was ruled out of the 2019 edition after two games but still, he scored a match-winning hundred against Australia at The Oval.

In the Champions Trophy, Dhawan has impressed every Cricket fan with his numbers. 710 runs in 10 games at an average of 77.88 with three hundreds, one each against South Africa, West Indies, and Sri Lanka. Clearly, his stats are just on another level in the ICC events but the reason for his sudden fall might be his strike rate.

Dhawan has played a huge role in the ODI format for almost ten years for the Indian National Cricket Team. Even though he has been one of the IPL season's most significant players, his strike rate was a matter of concern. Shikhar Dhawan's problem with the strike rate was one of the main factors in his initial exclusion from the Indian T20I team. Dhawan may have already played his final game for the Men in Blues as India selected Gill over him for the ICC World Cup 2023.
