Dhawan's patience finally pays off

For any sportsperson, waiting for an opportunity while peers move ahead is difficult. Delhi's left handed opener Shikhar Dhawan was second time lucky on Friday after he was chosen as an injury replacement in the limited overs squad for West Indies next month.

For any sportsperson, waiting for an opportunity while peers move ahead is difficult. Delhi's left handed opener Shikhar Dhawan was second time lucky on Friday after he was chosen as an injury replacement in the limited overs squad for West Indies next month.

His coach Tarak Sinha however feels the batsman was talented enough to make a mark. "He scored over 400 runs playing for Deccan Chargers in the IPL against one of the best bowlers, so this is proof enough that he has everything to belong there," he said.

He was out for a second ball duck in his only ODI, at home against Australia last year. This time he will know that chances don't come too often.
