India got a spectacular victory in the first ODI against Sri Lanka, even though Prithvi Shaw was awarded the man of the match title, but Shikhar Dhawan played an important role in helping India win by 7 wickets by playing 85 runs captaincy innings.
Dhawan was also successful as a captain and was also successful in winning the first match for India under his captaincy.
Dhawan's captaincy is being praised. Former India legend Virender Sehwag talked about Dhawan's captaincy and said that he has excellent captaincy ability, which he has shown in the first ODI match.
Sehwag said on the show of 'Cricbuzz' that this Sri Lankan team is inexperienced in front of Dhawan's experience.
The former explosive batsman said that Dhawan took advantage of this experience to beat Sri Lanka in the first ODI.
Dhawan did the same work that Rahul Dravid used to do for the Indian team as a player.

Sehwag said that, Dhawan knew that when other batsmen are batting stormy from the other end, then there is no need to show speed.
This was the reason that he continued his innings with restraint and in the end returned to the pavilion only after winning India. Dhawan played the role that Rahul Dravid used to play for the Indian team at one time.
Let us tell you that Shikhar Dhawan has also completed 6000 runs in his ODI career.
Dhawan has become the second fastest batsman to score 6000 runs for India.
At the same time, this Gabbar of India has also been successful in scoring 10,000 runs as an opener in international cricket.
