New Delhi: Out of  favour due to poor form, senior opener Gautam Gambhir has openly admitted that his statemate Shikhar Dhawan has "raised the bar" for him and all others with his stupendous performance at the international level.




Gambhir, who is fighting to make a comeback into the India side, showered accolades on his statemate Dhawan who smashed second highest individual List A score of 248 against South Africa A yesterday.

"Shikhar proud of u, brilliant knock. Keep going, keep the tricolour fluttering. And yes Shikhar, thanks for raising the bar for all of us. Good luck for future too," Gambhir was effusive in his praise for the fellow left-hander.

Dhawan's opening partner during last two seasons, Unmukt Chand also took to the micro-blogging site to congratulate the man of the moment.

"Cant believe my ears. shikhardhawan gone berserk against south africa A. Sheer demolition by  jatt. inspiring," Unmukt wrote.
