What is the end of this player’s career?
A player who does not get a chance to play in any of the three formats. This player is none other than the legendary batsman Shikhar Dhawan. There was a time when Shikhar Dhawan was considered to have won a big match for Team India and his opening pairing with Rohit Sharma was considered a hit, but selectors have been playing this batsman for a long time in Tests, ODIs and T20s. . For Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul closed the doors of the Test team first.
Not getting any chance
Not only that, but 35-year-old Shikhar Dhawan has also been dropped from the ODI and T20 squads. Shikhar Dhawan is now being replaced by KL Rahul in ODIs and T20s. Shikhar Dhawan did not get a chance in the recent T20 World Cup and T20 series against New Zealand.
The BCCI’s decision came as a shock
Shikhar Dhawan last played ODIs and T20s for India in July 2021. This time, the BCCI gave him the captaincy of India’s youth ODI and T20 team. Dhawan was not seen in Team India after this series. Speaking of Test cricket, Dhawan last played red ball cricket for India in 2018.
This player is the match winner
If we look at the statistics of Shikhar Dhawan, he is seen as the top player in all formats of cricket. In Test cricket too, Shikhar has scored 2300 runs at an average of 41 in 34 matches, of which he has scored 7 centuries, but it seems that the selectors did not evaluate Dhawan properly.
The doors of Test cricket are almost closed
After Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have secured their places as Test openers, it seems unlikely that Shikhar Dhawan will return to the Test squad. Dhawan has not played Test cricket since 2018 and has not been given a chance to play in any Test series since then. Seeing all this, it is understood that the door is now closed for Dhawan in Test cricket.
