Shikhar Dhawan, India’s dashing opener is currently preparing for the Vijay Hazare Trophy and will soon join his team. He has been a regular face in the limited over format for Team India. He looked in decent form against Proteas in the recent T20I series. Now, he will soon feature as an opener for Delhi in Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-20.

Dhawan has always been a very outspoken player and enjoys his life to the fullest in the Indian team. Recently, he was seen in a popular show “Aap ki Adalat” which is anchored by Rajat Sharma, who is also the acting president of Delhi and District cricket association (DDCA). In that show, Dhawan was seen discussing various topics relating to his career before a funny question was put down by the senior anchor in front of the Delhiite.

Dhawan’s hilarious reply on his photo with Rishabh Pant

During the last T20I match against South Africa, a photo of Rishabh Pant sitting on the lap of Shikhar Dhawan came out in public that went viral, which gave the meme creators a chance to troll him upside down. When the 33-year-old was asked about it, he gave a funny angle to it by saying that I don’t make any guys sit on my lap, but he didn’t listen to me, “I told him ‘Rishabh, get up, someone will click a photo. I don’t love guys that much that I’ll make them sit on my lap, but he is 21-22 years, and he doesn’t listen. So he sat on my lap and said ‘I will sit here only’. So I said ‘Sit, what can I do,” Shikhar told in Aap Ki Adalat.

He also praised Rishabh Pant who is currently facing criticism from Indian fans for his bad form and told that Pant is very talented. He is working hard and will serve the nation for a long time, “He is completely focused and working very hard. Sometimes there is just a situation where you can’t perform. But he is learning a lot from his journey and I am sure he will learn a lot. A player like him should be backed,” Dhawan added.

Dhawan is currently out of Test squad that will play a three-match Test series against Proteas, and his next assignment as an Indian opener will be against Bangladesh which will take place in November.
