Shikhar Dhawan

Former India captain and noted commentator Sunil Gavaskar believes that opener Shikhar Dhawan is unlikely to make it to the national team as far as this year’s ICC T20 World Cup is concerned.

Shikhar Dhawan had a good run in IPL 2022 but could not make his place in the series to be held in England next month. At the same time he failed to make it to the squad for the T20I series in South Africa. Shikhar Dhawan’s age can be a big factor behind this decision, he has not played international cricket matches for a long time.

Gavaskar believes that it will be difficult for Dhawan as far as T20I cricket is concerned and with only four months left for the ICC’s premier event in Australia. However, Shikhar Dhawan’s record in Australia is commendable.

Sunil Gavaskar said on Star Sports, “No. I don’t see his name coming up. If it had to pop up, it would have been in this team. A lot of players have gone to England and he could have been in this team. If he is not in this team, I don’t see him finding a place in the mix (for the T20 World Cup).”

Four Players Of Indian Team Who Impressed Most In South Africa Series

With Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul missing the series against South Africa, Dhawan would be hoping to make a comeback in the national team. But he didn’t get a chance as the selectors decided to test the youngsters. Shikhar Dhawan has scored over 450 runs in the last seven IPL editions but still could not find a place in the squad for England.

Though the selectors have picked Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan in the recent series, Gavaskar believes that Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, if fit, will be the best options for India at the top of the T20 World Cup.

“My opening combination will be KL Rahul, if he is fit, and Rohit Sharma is with him,” he added. India will play five T20 matches against England and two against Ireland in the next few weeks. This series is going to be decisive for some players keeping in view the T-20 World Cup.
