India vs Australia: Twitter unhappy over Shikhar Dhawan’s golden duck
The fans were quite disappointed with the opener's drought with the bat.

The first One Day International between India and Australia kickstarted at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium in Hyderabad. Australia. After winning the T20I series 2-nil, the visitors began in style winning their third consecutive toss on the trot. Skipper Aaron Finch elected to bat first as Australia were off to a poor start.
Usman Khawaja scored a fifty to rescue the Men in Yellow after a slow start. Glenn Maxwell looked good again but had his stumps knocked down by Mohammed Shami who seemed in some extraordinary form. Alex Carey and Nathan Coulter-Nile provided the finishing touch as Australia managed to post a total of 236/7 on the board.
As for India, Shikhar Dhawan continued his poor run in the ODIs. The opener was dismissed for a golden duck. As usual, Dhawan walked back to the pavilion with a cheeky smile on his face. Known for his big knocks at the top order, the Delhi lad hasn’t been able to replicate the same ever since the Asia Cup.
While the left-hander did score a couple of half-centuries in New Zealand, he hasn’t been anywhere near his best. With the series being India’s last assignment before the World Cup, it may be worrying signs for the Men in Blue. However, the positive aspect is that Dhawan has been renowned for his batting in ICC tournaments. He was India’s leading run scorer in the previous World Cup as well as the Champions Trophy in 2013 and 2017.
The fans were quite disappointed with the opener’s drought with the bat. Moreover, his smile even after getting dismissed irked many. Many felt that Dhawan should be wary of displaying such a reckless attitude. While some feared he may get dropped for KL Rahul, others were of the opinion that he will prove his worth in the upcoming games.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions based on Dhawan’s golden duck:
KL Rahul would be the happiest watching Dhawan's form right now#INDvAUS

I literally abused Dhawan for laughing after dropping that catch in Edgbaston test… He did the same today. Which player laughs after golden duck? 😒

The yardstick for Dhawan is so small compared to Rohit and Rahul

I think Shikhar Dhawan is the only player I’ve seen who has a smile every time he gets out. How much does he enjoy getting out.. thu ne batuku 🙏🏼 #INDvAUS

Every time Shikhar Dhawan gets out his heartwarming smile is like a son has bowled out his father on zero and the wife is laughing from the 1st floor balcony of the house. Such a lovely sight😍

What kind of rush is Shikhar Dhawan in always? There are ppl who don’t get opportunities to play for the country and he throws away his wicket almost all the time #INDvAUS

Sometimes Dhawan's smile is so irritating. #INDvAUS
— Jaanvi 🏏 (@ThatCricketBuff) March 2, 2019
Lol, Dhawan doesn't give a damn. Smiled like the ball raced through the outfield for four when it was actually caught by Maxwell. #INDvAUS

Dhawan needs some big scores to seal place in WC squad no questions asked. Couple of batsmen breathing down his neck

One smile is equal to 100 runs – Shri Shri Dhawan

Listen you all Dhawan haters, our sir is just 1 ICC tournament away to silent his critics till the next ICC event. #BleedDhawanian
— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) March 2, 2019
Don't think Dhawan can keep smiling, he has good record in ICC but low scores could get Rahul in early

Shikhar Dhawan’s kids are very lucky. Even if they fail in the exam, he will just look at their report cards and smile.
