The ‘Gabbar’ of the cricket world, Shikhar Dhawan, who made his ODI international debut against Australia in 2010, scored 6793 runs in 167 matches in his ODI career, including 7 centuries and 39 half-centuries. Huh. But, he has not been given a place in the team announced for the SRL vs IND T20I & ODI Series, 2023 to be played between India and Sri Lanka at the beginning of the new year.

The incident has led to speculations as to whether his international career is on the wane. In the ODI series against Sri Lanka, Shubhman Gill has been selected to open the batting along with Team India captain Rohit Sharma.

Bangladesh vs India ODI Series, Shikhar Dhawan’s disappointing performance in 2022 became the reason

Significantly, the Indian team has recently returned from the tour of Bangladesh. In this tour, Bangladesh faced a 2-1 defeat in the ODI series played between the two countries. Indian team opener Shikhar Dhawan was not able to perform well in this series. In total, he scored 18 runs in 3 matches. This is the reason why the selector of Team India did not give him a place in the upcoming series against Sri Lanka. If we talk about the last 5 ODIs, then only 49 runs came out of his bat.

ODI World Cup, 2023 is the target

The history of international ODI cricket tells that in the year 2022, Shubman Gill has shown a good game. Apart from him, Ishan Kishan hit a double century in the third and final match of the 3-match ODI series against Bangladesh while batting dangerously. In such a situation, these two batsmen have almost closed the way for the return of Shikhar Dhawan as an opener. Significantly, Shubman Gill scored 638 runs in 12 ODIs this year at an average of 70.88. During this, his best score was 130 runs.
