Shikhar Dhawan tweeted on the World Cup squad and wrote, ‘Congratulations my teammates and friends on being selected to represent India in the World Cup! With the prayers and support of 150 crore people, you carry forward our hopes and dreams. Hope you bring the cup back home and make us proud!’
Please tell that there was a lot of discussion about Shikhar Dhawan for both Asia Cup and World Cup. However, Dhawan did not get a chance in the Asia Cup. It was clear from this that his leaf has been cut in the World Cup. There was a time when Shikhar Dhawan’s pairing with Rohit Sharma was a super hit, but this time it will not be seen in the World Cup.
Dhawan played the last match against Bangladesh
This left-handed opener batsman was once a key member of Team India. However, due to falling form, he started getting in and out of the team. This is the reason why this year Shikhar Dhawan did not take the field in a single match for Team India. Dhawan last got a chance to play in an international match against Bangladesh last year. Only after this he is walking out of Team India.
