Because of this, Shikhar Dhawan did not get a place in the India team for the South Africa series, know

Shikhar Dhawan’s performance for Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the IPL season was excellent. Looking at this form of Dhawan, it was believed that he could get a place in the upcoming T20 series against South Africa. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli rested for the T20 series against South Africa. In such a situation, there were chances that Shikhar Dhawan would return. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli rested from the T20I series against South Africa for the fifth test against England. Over 450 runs have come off Shikhar Dhawan’s bat this season for the seventh straight season. He has scored runs for nearly every franchise Dhawan has played for over the years.

This season, Dhawan has scored 460 runs in 14 games. In the last 6 years, Dhawan scored the lowest runs this year. He has scored more than 500 runs in most of the last few seasons. Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya are believed to have been the candidates to become South Africa’s series captain. But the selection committee then decided to name KL Rahul the captain for this season. It is said in media reports that coach Rahul Dravid has a big role behind Dhawan not being selected in the team. It is also said that before the team was selected on Sunday, coach Rahul Dravid had told Dhawan that he would not be selected in this team. A senior BCCI official said that before he was selected to the team, Dravid told Dhawan that his contribution to India over the past decade has been spectacular.

A senior BCCI official reportedly said that coach Rahul Dravid went to the trouble of not including Shikhar Dhawan in the squad. Actually, Coach Dravid wants to give young players a chance in T20. Coach Dravid had briefed Dhawan on this before the team was announced. There are only 5 months left for the next T20 World Cup to be held in Australia. In such a situation, the team management kicked Dhawan out of the team and gave a clear message that he probably won’t get a place in the team after doing T20 World. Young pacemakers Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik have been selected for the T20 series against South Africa. While Kuldeep Yadav, Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik have returned to the India team.
