Shikhar Dhawan had a forgettable match with the bat against West Indies in the 2nd ODI at the Port of Spain on Sunday. Dhawan, who was playing his first match after completely recovering from a thumb fracture, failed to make an impact as he could manage only a paltry 2 runs as in an innings which only lasted the first three balls of the first over. Shikhar's stay in the middle ended when he was trapped in front of the wicket by star West Indian pacer Sheldon Cotterell.
As Gabbar was dismissed early, the fans were also left disappointed after the southpaw had showcased yet another lackluster performance. Here's what they had to say on social media.
In fact, Shikhar Dhawan making a comeback to the Indian team was arguably the most eagerly awaited moment of the ongoing bilateral series. The left-handed batsman had sustained this injury during India's ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash against the reigning World Champions Australia where 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).
Dhawan had recently taken up the "Speak Out" Challenge along with his Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer. The video of this hilarious contest was posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on their official Twitter handle.
