no one paid attention
The pain of Rishi Dhawan, who is showing amazing for Punjab, has come out in the middle of the IPL. Dhawan said that for years no one was paying attention to his performance. Talking to The Indian Express, Dhawan said, ‘After playing in the IPL for 4 years and making my debut for India, I was dropped from the team. After that I was not selected for the next 5 years. No one was watching my performance in domestic cricket.
Didn’t get chance after good performance
Apart from this, Dhawan also said that he was performing well but still no one paid attention to him. Dhawan further said, ‘It was very bad because I was not getting opportunities even after performing well. There was a lot of pain inside me and I cannot describe it in words. I agree that when I got the opportunity to play for India, I was not able to perform in the way that was expected of me. But I was confident that I could do well.
Got a chance in IPL after 5 years
Punjab Kings (PBKS) have included all-rounder Rishi Dhawan in their team this season. Dhawan is playing in IPL after almost 5 years. This player was bought by Punjab Kings in the mega auction for Rs 55 lakh. Dhawan is known for his sly bowling as well as for his batting. He has been running in excellent form since domestic cricket, due to which Punjab Kings bought him in the auction.
Himachal had won the title
