When an ordinary man becomes a star, it's natural for him to develop an ego. However, despite being superstars, some people can think above themselves, an attribute that makes them unique among others. 

Veteran Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan has recently won a billion hearts through a fantastic response depicting his selflessness. 

In a conversation with renowned journalist Sudhir Chaudhary, Dhawan picked Shubman Gill over himself to play for India, earning accolades from his critics as well as admirers. 

The stylish southpaw was asked to don the selector's hat and choose one between Shubman Gill and himself as an opener for India. 

Upon hearing the question, the experienced batter picked Gill over himself to play for the national side, citing the youngster's red-hot batting form as the reason behind his answer. 

Such a sweet gesture from the Indian opener spoke volumes about his selflessness, indicating how secure he is. 

Regarded as India's go-to man in ICC tournaments, Dhawan has amassed 6793 runs, including 17 tons, at an amazing average of 44.11 and a magnificent strike rate of 91.35. 

Considering his incredible numbers, he will undoubtedly go down as one of the finest ODI batters India has ever produced. 

However, the 37-year-old recently went out of favour following a slump in form during the Bangladesh series. 

The Delhi batter's next assignment will be IPL 2023, where he will lead Punjab Kings.
