Shikhar Dhawan’s wife Aesha is deeply missing her friend Ritika Sajdeh, the wife of ace Indian batsman Rohit Sharma who is also expecting her first baby. Last month, Ritika also posted her FaceTime with her husband and Zoraver, Dhawan’s son, who is very close to the former. While Rohit is currently with the Indian team touring Australia as part of the squad for the four-match Test series, Dhawan will only join the team for the three-match ODI series scheduled next month.
Rohit made a comeback to India’s Test side after almost a year when he played the first Test in Adelaide. However, he did not succeed as he returned with scores of 37 and 1 and missed the next Test in Perth because of an injury. The man has been picked for the third Test in Melbourne starting on Wednesday and his fans besides his wife will be hoping that the man delivers with the bat this time to revive his career in the longer format.
Rohit is back into Test team, Dhawan isn’t
Dhawan, who opens with Rohit in the limited-overs format, however, has been discarded from the Tests owing to his inconsistent show with the willow, especially on foreign tours. He has been dropped from the Test side after India’s series in England earlier this year and has been replaced by young talent Prithvi Shaw who started his international career with a hundred against the Windies at home.
On Monday, Dhawan’s wife Aesha posted a throwback picture and captioned it: “Throwback!!! @ritssajdeh thinking about u and the bump!!! Sending lots of love and counting down the days!!! Zoraver is waiting eagerly lol.”
Last month, Ritika captioned the photo she posted with Rohit and Zoraver as: “FaceTime with my two favourite boys in Melbourne @rohitsharma45 @aesha.dhawan5”.
A few days ago, Rohit took to Instagram and apologised to Ritika for not being able to be her side on her birthday. He shared an old birthday photograph of him with his wife cutting a cake, saying: “Happy birthday my other half. Apologies for not being there, thought I’ll share this inflight celebration of your birthday last year @ritssajdeh.”
