New Delhi: Former India opener Chetan Chauhan feels that Shikhar Dhawan, who made his Test debut in the ongoing Mohali Test match against Australia, should prove to be a successful opener.

"Shikhar should succeed as he is highly talented. He has been playing First Class cricket for over five years and he has been a consistent performer for Delhi, scoring heavily," said Chauhan, who played 40 Tests for India alongside Sunil Gavaskar.

"He has also played for India A and for the Under-25 India team. This is a good break for him and he should make full use of it."
