Moody: Dhawan’s work ethic is impressive

"The positive thing about Shikhar is that whether he is captaining or batting, he constantly wants to improve."

Mohali: Sunrisers Hyderabad’s coach Tom Moody is full of praise for Shikhar Dhawan. The former Australian feels that the left-hander’s biggest strength is his desire to improve and evolve as a cricketer.

"He has done a good job, he is going to blossom every single game he plays, his leadership today was excellent. The positive thing about Shikhar is that whether he is captaining or batting, he constantly wants to improve," Moody said at the post-match press conference.

"He is always asking questions, he is always wanting to develop his game. So, from a coaching point of view, it is pleasure to work with people who have an open mind and are prepared to grow, as people," Moody is quoted as saying in a PTI report.

"His maturity and work ethics have sort of come in line. He is very clear on what he wants to achieve, he is an extremely hard worker, he is very thorough in his preparation and when you have someone who has those sort of professional standards along with a lot of natural ability, they are destined to perform consistently at higher level,” Moody said.

"There is no doubt that having Shikhar available for the whole tournament for all the matches is an incredible bonus. You know you are talking of a world class batsman. His form for the past 12 months or so has been as good as anyone in world cricket."
