New Delhi: Sharing the dressing room with Sachin Tendulkar is a memory that Rishi Dhawan would cherish all his life, and now the young Himachal Pradesh all-rounder is confident that he would have an equally great time playing alongside Virender Sehwag for Kings XI Punjab this season.

"What do I say about Sachin paaji. It was special to spend time with him. The IPL winning moments with him will stay with me forever. He used to point out all my faults at the nets and I became a better player as the tournament went on. Now it is great to play with Viru paaji," Dhawan said while recollecting his stint with Mumbai Indians, who won the IPL last season. (Full Coverage of IPL 2014)
