After a disappointing England Test series, apart from the failure in the finals against Bangladesh, Shikhar Dhawan was consistent throughout the tournament with his explosive batting. He was the top-scorer and was rightly named the man of match. Along with Rohit Sharma, the explosive left handed batsman played an important role in most of India's wins in the tournament.
He played a total of 5 matches and scored 342 runs with impressive strike rate of 102.09 and had a third best average of 68.40.
