London: A section of the British media praised India opener Shikhar Dhawan for his near flawless 114 against South Africa in the opening fixture of the ICC Champions Trophy
The Guardian in their match report wrote,"Actually it would be more accurate to say that he caressed the ball around Cardiff with silky strokeplay that barely contained a hint of violence.
"There is a swagger about Dhawan; his hairstyle changes with the seasons; his earring glitters in the sunshine. When he was hit on the head he tried to give the impression that this was no more troublesome to him than an irritating fly. He was the man of the match."
