Shikhar Dhawan is Awsomly supervising Sunrisers Hyderabad after being handed the reins of the IPL franchise.It can be easily established by the strong performance of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Champions 
League T20 tourney. Keeping his captainship first and foremost, Dhawan resolutely led the Sunrisers in the CLT20 tournament even though they couldn’t make it to the semis,Powerful batting and great fielding skills make Dhawan perfect for the Twenty20 format. The opening match score of 71 runs against Kandurata Maroons was a testament to his credibility and endurance. Dhawan with consistent performances for his side has proven that the decision of giving the responsibility of leading Sunrisers was not at
 all a wrong one. 

In Shikhar's short career so far, the 27 year old has till now played 19 ODIs and one Test match for India. He has scored a total of 776 runs in ODIs and 187 in Test (one inning). He averages 43.11 in ODIs and has a high score of 116 runs (against Zimbabwe). He has slammed three centuries and three fifties in ODIs. In his Test match debut against Australia, Dhawan splendidly scored 187 runs in 174 balls hitting 33 fours boundaries at Mohali and in the Champions League T20, Dhawan lead Sunrisers energetically in the qualifiers and helped them reach the league stages of the tournament. After qualifiers, Hyderabad entered in to the mains and won their first match against Trinidad & Tobago. Though given a solidstart by Dhawan in both the matches against Chennai Super kings and Titans, Hyderabad were not able to go all the way. Their last matchwith Brisbane Heat was abandoned due to washout in Motera. This putSunrisers out of the Champions League after they finished with sixpoints from four matches -- winning once and losing twice. 

Dhawan performed for his IPL franchise in the T20 competition but sometimes luck went against him. There might bea lot waiting for this dynamic player and hopefully his faith and luck would one day lead him to the heights of great future.
