Shikhar Dhawan has stated that he isn’t too bothered about being not considered for selection in the T20Is and it might not be his time to play the shortest format. Dhawan further added that he is in a very good space currently with his performance and doing as best as he can with batting.
Ever since the conclusion of the T20 World Cup last year, India has been experimenting with their batting order. One of the most experimented positions was the opening slot and various partners have opened with Rohit Sharma for the Indian team. Eight different batters have been tried at the opening position by India in the last 22 T20Is for India. However, Shikhar Dhawan has been overlooked in the T20Is in spite of performing consistently in the IPL.
Reflecting on his exclusion in the shortest format, Dhawan said that he is not disappointed.
“To be honest. I don’t feel any disappointment as such. I feel that there is a time for everything, and maybe it’s not my time. Maybe I lack something that I haven’t been able to do too well. No worries, I gave my best and that’s what matters. Till the time I am happy and content, that is all I care about. It’s not like if my name doesn’t come, I will be affected or anything like that. I am in a very good space; I am doing my best,” Dhawan told Sports Tak.
BCCI will be announcing the squad for Asia Cup soon and Dhawan will be hoping for his selection in the tournament.
