IPL 2021- Shikhar Dhawan: On the personal front, Shikhar Dhawan was left out of the upcoming T20 World Cup squad. It was coupled with devasting news as his marriage ended on the fortnight of the squad announcement.
Former India cricketer Farokh Engineer has expressed his disappointment at Dhawan’s exclusion.
“I haven’t exactly studied it. I only heard it once. But it seems that all the top players are there. Suryakumar Yadav is in the squad, which I am really happy to see. Chahar is a very good bowler, and there is Bumrah of course. I think with Ravindra Jadeja and Rohit Sharma, the balance of the team is good. I think we’ve got a good squad,” Engineer told Sports Tak.
“Shikhar Dhawan… well, I’m surprised that he has been omitted because he has come in and done fantastically well. But that is such a huge problem for the Indian selectors that players such as Dhawan are getting to be dropped, which is a huge disappointment because he would walk into any international team as a batsman. He has proved himself time and again and I don’t think a player of his calibre should be on trial,” he added.
Chief BCCI selector Chetan Sharma had said that Dhawan has been rested.
“The need of the hour was that we look at other players and give Shikhar Dhawan some rest, otherwise he is an important player and he will be back very soon,” Chetan Sharma had told reporters.
