Ahead of the selection for India's tour of West Indies, opener Shikhar Dhawan has made himself available for selection. As per sources, Dhawan has recovered from the injury and has confirmed his availability to play in all the three formats.
The selectors will be picking the Indian squad for the tour of West Indies on Sunday. India will be travelling to the Caribbean islands as well as the United States for two Tests, three One Day Internationals and three T20Is starting from 3rd August to 4th September 2019. The three-match Test series will be a part of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship (2019-2021).
It now seems that if all is well then the die-hard cricket fans will get to see Gabbar don the Indian jersey once again. After knowing that, the stylish left-handed batsman is expected to make a comeback, here's what the fans had to say on social media.
The southpaw was last seen in action on June 9 during India's ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 league match against Australia. However, he could not take any further part in the tournament after he was ruled out due to an injury between his thumb and the index finger.
He had sustained this injury after a rising delivery from Pat Cummins had struck him on his thumb. However, he overcame all the odds and continued batting in pain. His efforts bore fruits as he ended up scoring a match-winning century (117 of 109 deliveries).
