India's opening batter Shikhar Dhawan recently spoke about a lot of things- from his career taking a dip and his marriage falling apart to match-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The veteran batter who has played more than a couple of franchises in the Indian T20 league was asked about match-fixing in the tournament and Dhawan was not shy of lifting the lid. 

During the interview, the senior journalist asked Dhawan if things like match-fixing happen in the IPL. The batter was quick to say that he has not seen anything of that sort during his stint in the tournament but he is aware of the things that have happened. Dhawan talked about the Rajasthan Royals' fixing saga wherein India's star pacer S Sreesanth was also accused of fixing. 

"I have not seen someone doing it. But yes, I know what had happened when three-four guys were caught. We were shown that footage beforehand and were educated," Dhawan said. 

Notably, Dhawan spoke about these things during an interview with Aaj Tak. The batter also revealed how he got the nickname "Gabbar". The Delhi cricketer revealed that he got the name from his Ranji Team coach and the reason was him shouting like the famous antagonist 'Gabbar' from cult classic Sholay.
