“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.”
