2013 ICC Champions Trophy: Shikhar Dhawan dedicates his award to flood victims
Birmingham: Winner of the coveted `Golden Bat` Shikhar Dhawan made a touching gesture as he dedicated his award to the victims who had lost their lives in the recent flood that affected the state of Uttarakhand.
"I would like to dedicate my performance to the people who have lost their lives back home due to the flood. My prayers are with them," the new batting sensation of the Indian team said at the presentation ceremony.
The Indian players of late have shown their social consciousness with Yuvraj Singh dedicating one of their winning performance to the Delhi`s gang-rape victim while Manoj Tiwary also dedicated his man-of-the-match award against West Indies to those who lost their lives in the tragic fire that broke out at the AMRI hospital in Kolkata.
