Shikhar has 'raised the bar': Gambhir
Bangalore, Aug 13: Opener Gautam Gambhir on Tuesday said Shikhar Dhawan had "raised the bar" for all by scoring a record 248 against South Africa A on Monday (August 12).

Dhawan hit a sensational 150-ball 248 for India A against South Africa A in Pretoria. His knock led the team into the final in a high-scoring match.

Gambhir, who is out of the Indian team now, said he was proud of his Delhi team-mate and praised him via the micro blogging site Twitter.

"Shikhar proud of u, brilliant knock. Keep going, keep the tricolour fluttering," he wrote.

In another tweet, he added: "And yes Shikhar, thanks for raising the bar for all of us. Good luck for future too."

Another cricketer from Delhi also took to Twitter to praise Dhawan. India Under-19 World Cup winning captain Unmukt Chand appreciated the left-hander's "demolition" job.

"Cant believe my ears. #shikhardhawan gone berserk against south africa A. Sheer demolition by jatt. #inspiring," Chand wrote on his Twitter page.
