The veteran Indian opener, Shikhar Dhawan reckons that he had a great outing in the ODI series against England which the hosts won 2-1. Dhawan amassed as many as 171 runs in the series, as he missed the century by just a couple of runs in the first ODI. Earlier, Sam Curran’s 95-run knock went in vain as a spirited bowling performance by India helped the hosts to defeat England by seven runs in the third ODI.

Talking about the same during a chat with the host broadcaster Star Sports, Shikhar Dhawan said, “I was always in the groove. Once I got the chance, I made the most of it. It’s a good feeling to bat like this, I really enjoyed it. I was playing domestic cricket, I was preparing for it and that was the best match practice I could get coming into this series. The wicket was good for the last two matches and it stayed true today as well. I enjoy playing on bouncy tracks.”

India’s batting unit had shown some changes in their batting approach and this ensured that despite losing wickets at regular intervals, the hosts posted a total of 329.

Pant (78), Pandya (64), and Shikhar Dhawan (67) registered 50-plus scores as the hosts managed to set a 330-run target for the visitors. Virat Kohli-led side won all the series in this England’s tour of India. India clinched the four-match Test series 3-1 and then went onto win the five-match T20I series 3-2.

The ODI series-decider between India and England was as dramatic as it can get. Catches were dropped, a lot of runs were scored, wickets were taken at crucial intervals, and the last-over finish as well. It took the penultimate delivery of the series to decide the winner between the top two ODI sides and a lot of credit for the same goes to Sam Curran who never gave up during his unbeaten 95-run knock and the Indian bowlers, especially, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur.
