Team India is to be announced soon for the ODI series to be held on South Africa tour. Just before this, Shikhar Dhawan got the chance to return to Team India from the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021, but he seems to be going hand in hand. This swashbuckling opener failed to make a big score again today while playing for Delhi. He played 42 balls against Haryana, while scoring only 18 runs. He was clean bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal on one of his wavy deliveries.
so it’s hard to come back
In Team India, the pair of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul is currently performing well as an opener in all three formats. Apart from this, Ruturaj Gaikwad, who scored three consecutive centuries in the Vijay Hazare Toffee, is also making a claim for Team India. In such a situation, Shikhar Dhawan’s team is currently almost out of the selection scene.
The last international match was played against Sri Lanka.
Shikhar played his last international match on the Sri Lanka tour in July this year. He captained the T20 and ODI teams in Sri Lanka. At that time India’s main team was playing a 5-match Test series with the hosts in England. Dhawan scored 128 runs in the ODI series in Sri Lanka, including an unbeaten 86. In the three-match T20I series, only 86 runs came off Dhawan’s bat.
Team India will play 3-match ODI series on South Africa tour
The Indian team is going to tour South Africa this month where it has to play a 3-match Test and 3-match ODI series. The Indian team has been selected for the Test series while Team India is yet to be selected for the ODI series. In such a situation, the form that Ruturaj is showing will be difficult for the selectors to ignore.
