Shikhar Dhawan is at the moment out of the Indian staff. The veteran left-handed opener has been a rock for India within the white-ball codecs in the previous couple of years. However, at the moment the staff administration is seeking to go for youthful choices in ODIs. It implies that Dhawan has work at hand if he’s to have any hope of creating a comeback. He continues to be taking part in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and can be keen to go away a mark. Meanwhile, Dhawan posted a humorous video on Instagram, with the caption: “Kis baat ki 14 February (what’s the point of 14 february)? #Valentine2023 #theboys”
“What’s your valentine day plan bro?” a person within the video asks Dhawan.
To which, the star cricketer replies: “Agar kismat mein na likhi ho pari, toh kis baat ki 14 february (If there is no angel written in fate, what’s the point of 14 february)”
Dhawan led Team India within the ODI collection towards Bangladesh, the place the guests misplaced 2-1 within the three-match collection. Despite ending up on the shedding facet, Ishan grew to become the spotlight of the collection after he smashed his maiden ODI double ton within the third match. The collection was a forgetful one for Dhawan as he solely scored 18 runs in three matches, leading to him getting excluded from the staff for the ODIs towards Sri Lanka and New Zealand.
However, India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin got here in help of Dhawan and known as him a “stalwart of white-ball cricket.”
“Only when the Top 3 failed, we had issues up to now. Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli. We talk a lot about Rohit and Kohli, but Dhawan is a stalwart. He was silently doing his job. Will his place be a big void to fill for Team India?,” Ashwin stated on his YouTube channel.
“Should we go back to Shikhar Dhawan, or should we groom Ishan Kishan, who has just scored a double hundred? Instead of backing a player on the basis of one huge score, we should see what the team requires. Which character will deliver under pressure? Which character will serve us for a long time?,” he added.
Dhawan has performed a complete of 167 ODI matches for India and scored a whopping complete of 6793 runs, laced with 17 centuries and 39 half-centuries.
