India opener Shikhar Dhawan has said that his focus is on the upcoming ODI Cricket World Cup in 2023 and he wants to feature in as many matches as he can leading to the marquee cricketing event.
“My focus is definitely on next year’s 50-overs World Cup and for that, I want to play as many matches as possible for India and do well in them. In between, there is the IPL as well, so I will try to continue to perform there and look to play the domestic one-day and T20 matches and keep myself match-fit and ready,” Dhawan told The Times Of India.
The stylish southpaw from Delhi, a consistent performer for India in ICC events in the past, said that he enjoys playing in such global events.
“I love playing in ICC tournaments. There is always a different feeling and satisfaction and I have had some very good tournaments in the past. I prepare and approach every tournament exactly the same way,” said Dhawan.
