Team India’s veteran batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been an active entertainer on Instagram for the last year thanks to his engaging content. He continued the trend with another comedy reel on Thursday, August 17, 2023. Shikhar Dhawan is currently out of the race for the Indian team in all formats. The emergence of youngsters like Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan has forced the selectors to move on from Dhawan.
Both Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan have scored double hundreds in the ODI format last year and have made strong claims to be Rohit Sharma’s opening partner in the upcoming World Cup. Thus Shikhar Dhawan is enjoying his time away from the game and at the same time working hard to stay fit in case he is recalled from the Indian team.
He recently shared a funny reel with Bollywood’s famous ‘Bad Man’ Gulshan Grover on his Instagram handle. Dhawan captioned it:
“Who knew being Bad could be so good? Who all loved ‘Bad Man’?????

I Was A Bit Surprised, Says Shikhar Dhawan On Being Ignored For Asian Games
The Indian men’s team is all set to participate in the upcoming Asian Games in Hangzhou, China. The selectors have already selected a young team led by Ruturaj Gaikwad for the tournament. Many were surprised to learn about Shikhar Dhawan’s absence on the list. Speaking to PTI, Dhawan expressed similar sentiments to fans on his non-selection for the Asia Games, saying:
“When my name was not there (for Asian Games), I was a bit shocked. But then, I was like they have a different thought process, you just have to accept it. Happy that Rutu (Gaikwad) will lead the side. All the young boys are there, I am sure they will do well.”
“I will be ready, of course. That is why I keep myself fit (so whenever I get a chance I am ready). There is always a chance whether it is one percent or 20 percent. I still enjoy training and I still enjoy the game, these are the things in my control. Whatever decision is made, I respect that.”
