‘Ready To Bat Anywhere'
Dhawan willing to adjust as per team’s need after backlash over Kohli not batting at No. 3

Regular India opener Shikhar Dhawan says he is ready to bat anywhere after skipper Virat Kohli's move to drop himself down at No. 4 to accommodate him and KL Rahul backfired in the first ODI against Australia.

The visitors crushed India by 10 wickets in the first of the three-match series, chasing down a 256-run target with plenty to spare in Mumbai on Tuesday.

“If they ask me to bat at No.3, of course I'll do it. Anything for my country, for sure,” Dhawan said after the game in which Rahul came in at the critical position.

“You have to be mentally strong, all the boys are mentally strong, that’s why they’ve been playing international cricket and it's part of the journey, sometimes you’ve to switch numbers as well.”
