Shikhar Dhawan has been the pivot around which the Sunrisers Hyderabad fortunes revolved in IPL 2018. In the absence of David Warner, it was Dhawan who shouldered the responsibility of getting the Orange Army off to a good start, every time he walked out to bat. SRH may have lost to CSK in the finals by 8 wickets, but Dhawan has come out with a message that should act as a balm for the dejected orange army. Dhawan has amassed 497 runs in 16 matches at an average of 38.23. It may not be his best IPL season ever, but he has surely played a very significant role in the success of the SunRisers outfit.

Dhawan has been a part of the SRH outfit since its inception. In the year prior to this, he had a formed a great pairing with David Warner, but in his absence Dhawan did what he could best. The SRH loyalist came up with a tweet, kind of a message that sums up their journey. In the tweet, he talks of how to feel upbeat and stay confident. It seems the tweet is meant for all those whose hearts broke on the all-important night, as CSK romped home to clinch their 3rd IPL title.
