Indecisiveness and indecisiveness in decision making are a thing of the past for Shikhar Dhawan and he does not hesitate to take decisions as a captain that may not go down well with any player but benefit the team.

Under his leadership, India won 3-2 against Sri Lanka and 2-1 against South Africa. The team had to see a 1-4 defeat to the West Indies while he was captain. The Delhi batsman said his decision-making skills have improved with time. Dhawan told ESPNcricinfo: “The more you play, the more confident you are in your decisions. Earlier there used to be occasions when I would show respect to a bowler by giving him the extra but now I have matured and even if it hurts someone, I will take the decision which will benefit the team. Further talking about leadership skills, Dhawan said that it is important to maintain balance and win the trust of the players. He hardly feels the pressure and keeps his environment comfortable.

Dhawan said, “When you play music on a stringed instrument, it won’t sound good if the string is too loose, or if the string is too tight, it will break. So it’s all about creating balance. It’s important to create balance as a captain.”””’He said, “You have to know when to tighten the strings and when to let it be a little loose. It depends on the timing. At this point I also understood when I have to talk to the players and how much to talk.. I don’t want to talk to him when the atmosphere is hot. Instead I want to talk to him freely later.
Dhawan said: “It also depends on the level at which you are the captain. If it is the IPL then most of the players are maturing so you have to think whether to pull the strings or not. There are times in the Ranji Trophy when you must show determination because at that level some players are raw pitchers and you have to be determined to mold them. It is important to maintain balance. The 36-year-old player was recently named the captain of the Indian Premier League team Punjab Kings.
