Opener Shikhar Dhawan, who captained India in the recently-concluded ODI series vs West Indies, was ignored by the selectors for the forthcoming Asia Cup and talking on the same, Dhawan said that he doesn’t have any idea why Team India the management doesn’t select him for the T20 format.
Notwithstanding, the 36-year-old shared that he only focuses on giving his best and making the most out of every opportunity he gets.
“I honestly don’t know about it…I don’t want to go deep about it. I have not played T20 for India for a long time now, I don’t know where I see myself. I look to make the most out of every opportunity I am getting. Be it IPL, domestic cricket, or ODI, I just want to do well, and that is the only thing under my control,” was cited as saying by The Indian Express.
Ever since the retirement of England cricketer Ben Stokes from ODIs, questions are being asked with respect to the format. Talking on the same, Dhawan said that ODI cricket is an art and the format is still exciting.
“I really enjoy playing ODI cricket. It’s an art and still has charm. I love playing it. Like Test and T20 have their values, ODI cricket is also exciting. I really like it,” Dhawan said.
He also talked about Virat Kohli’s poor form and said, “Virat is just one innings away and he is a champion player. I am sure he will come back soon. Once he starts going, there is no stopping for him.”
Notably, Kohli on Monday made a return to T20Is through the 15-member squad for the Asia Cup 2022.
