Shikhar Dhawan may out from T20 Team India because of form Virat Kohli hints:
T20 World Cup is to be held in Australia next year. To prepare for this, the Indian team has started taking big decisions. Auditions have started for the T20 World Cup for young players as well as senior players. Team India’s chief selector MSK Prasad and captain Virat Kohli have made it clear that they also want to give new players a chance.
After losing to New Zealand in the semi-finals of the World Cup 2019 played in England and Wales, the Indian team took a lesson and wants to give a chance to every player who is playing good cricket domestically. This is the reason that an Indian opener can now fall. These players are none other than Rohit Sharma’s partner Shikhar Dhawan, whose form is going poorly.
Shikhar Dhawan is in very poor form
The doors of Test cricket are almost closed for left-handed batsman Shikhar Dhawan. Although Shikhar Dhawan is doing well in ODIs, Shikhar Dhawan has not been in good form for some time in T20 cricket. Looking at Shikhar Dhawan’s 2019 T20 performance, he scored 105 runs in 7 matches at an average of just 15, not including a single half-century.
It is not that Shikhar Dhawan’s T20 record is anything special. Actually, Shikhar Dhawan has played 53 T20 Internationals for India so far. In 52 innings of these matches, Shikhar Dhawan has scored 1337 runs unbeaten 3 times. Shikhar Dhawan has scored 9 half-centuries in this format of cricket, but it does not include any century. Dhawan’s T20 average is 27.28.
From 2011 to 2017, Shikhar Dhawan played a total of 28 matches, scoring 543 runs at an average of 21.72, including 3 half-centuries. At the same time, from 2017 to 2018, Shikhar played a total of 18 matches, scoring 689 runs at an average of 40.52 with 6 half-centuries, but his average for the year 2019 has been very poor. In such a situation, Virat Kohli may go to KL Rahul, who has been doing consistently well in T20 cricket.
