Indian Cricket Team’s star opening batsman, Shikhar Dhawan is a fun character to be with off-the-field. Not only is he an active player on the field. He is an active social media user too. Dhawan who is currently training for India’s match against Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup 2016 on 23rd March, loves to share his moments, feelings and thoughts with his fans on Twitter quite often.

The post became a hit among more than 260K followers that the dashing left-handed batsman has on Twitter.


Dhawan hasn’t been able to get his form going in the T20 World Cup, which is being played in India. In both the matches that India has played Dhawan has not been able to reach double figures, in either of his innings. India will be hoping that against Bangladesh Dhawan can get some runs under his belt as they approach a crucial stage in the tournament. Meanwhile, Australia will go head-to-head against Bangladesh in Group 2 at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Monday. Bangladesh has lost key bowlers Taskin Ahmed and Arafat Sunny due to illegal bowling actions.
