New Delhi: Himachal Pradesh all-rounder Rishi Dhawan, who was bought by Kings XI Punjab for Rs 3 crore at the 2014 players' auction, is eyeing impressive performances in the forthcoming Indian Premier League to stake a claim for national selection.
Dhawan, who became the second-most costliest uncapped Indian player at the auction after Railways all-rounder Karn Sharma (Rs 3.75 cr), believes his fine show for KXIP will act as a "stepping stone" to get ready for a maiden call-up into the Indian team.
"I have done well in the domestic circuit this season. I believe my good showing in the IPL will act as a stepping stone to get into the Indian team. I am looking forward to this year's IPL to further prove my credentials," Dhawan told PTI.
