#3 Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan is an extraordinary batsman in the limited overs cricket and he is a regular member of the Indian team. The left-handed batsman will have an enormous responsibility on his shoulders in the absence of India's star batsman Virat Kohli. Dhawan was also named India's vice-captain in the Asia Cup and he needs to do well if India wants to defend the throne successfully.
Dhawan has a knack for scoring a lot of runs in the big tournaments. He was India's leading run-scorer in the 2013 and 2017 Champions Trophy tournaments. Moreover, he was India's top run-scorer in the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
The 32-year old stylish left-hander has scored 4361 ODI runs in 102 matches at an average of 45.90. Thus, Dhawan is definitely competent to be the top run-scorer of the Asia Cup.Published 08 Sep 2018, 18:27 IST
