Star India batsman Shikhar Dhawan indicated at a promotional event yesterday that desire is the major reason behind his recent success.

“When I was in line to get into the Indian team, I always used to tell myself that I have to perform better than the others.

“When I used to see Viru bhai (Sehwag) or Gautam bhai (Gambhir) playing for India, I always used to think that I have to play better than them. Only then, I could create a chance for myself,” he said.

Dhawan felt he had matured greatly: “I am now mentally very strong. This has helped me perform consistently and I am enjoying it.”
