Shikhar Dhawan, the Indian batting stalwart, has made a comeback in the squad for the three match T20I series versus Sri Lanka. The series gets underway on Sunday, January 5 at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati. It would have been tough for the southpaw to stake his claim back in the mix had Rohit Sharma, the limited-overs vice-captain, not taken a break.
Earlier, Dhawan had suffered a deep cut on his knee while playing for Delhi in the 2019-20 edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. The injury ruled him out of the T20I and ODI series against the West Indies. Dhawan is now busy proving his fitness in the 2019-20 Ranji Trophy match versus Hyderabad at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi that started on December 25.
Amidst all his travails, Dhawan isn’t missing out on having quality time with his son Zoravar. In a video, Zoravar can be heard, saying: “you have to play.” Zoravar had a funny fist-fight with his father where he can be seen throwing punches and kicks. Dhawan posted a video of it on Instagram.
He captioned the clip and wrote, “My head coach motivating me to play Gabbar ko sirf chota gabbar hi maar sakta hai Zoravar and my wife are coming to visit & I am so excited to spend quality family time with them,”

Dhawan impressing in Ranji game
Dhawan had an excellent outing thus far in the Ranji game. After Hyderabad won the toss and elected to field first, Dhawan came out as an opener and gave a good account of himself. Delhi ended the opening day’s play with the score at 269 for the loss of six wickets in 66 overs. While the rest of the Delhi batters got out after getting starts, Dhawan didn’t throw in the towel.
He stayed put in the middle throughout the day and remained unbeaten on 137 off 198 balls with the help of 19 fours and a couple of sixes. On the second day, Delhi will be looking to add as many runs as possible and Dhawan’s role in the quest will be of prime importance.
