India Vs West Indies: Your wait is about to end if you were desperately waiting for Shikhar Dhawan’s come back. Everyone is aware of how Shikhar got injured during the world cup, and could not play in the forthcoming matches. Many Indian fans believe it to be one of the reasons why India lost the semifinal against New Zealand. But, more than that, we were hoping for Shikhar Dhawan to recover soon and join his team for the India Tour of West Indies.
Nevertheless, there were some who were not quite satisfied with his performance in the T20 series against West Indies. India won the T20 series even after Dhawan could not score much. Captain Virat Kohli supported him by saying that it is normal, and his poor batting is not something to be concerned about.
Both, India and the West Indies are now ready for the upcoming One Day International (ODI) series where they will play three matches. India is more confident because they are stronger in the ODI series that is something they have already displayed in the World Cup 2019. All Indian fans are now looking forward to watching some spectacular innings as the trio of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Virat Kohli are returning to their favorite format.
Shikhar Dhawan’s come back leads to Speculations about KL’s Position
There is no doubt about Shikhar Dhawan’s position because India’s third-best player would open these matches along with Rohit Sharma, but there are speculations about who opened the matches in Shikhar’s absence and Rishabh Pant’s position as to who will play at NO. 4.
Shikhar Dhawan’s come back had become a national wish as cricket fans were missing his presence since he got injured.
Navdeep Saini to Make His Debut
The India vs West Indies series will start from today (August 8, 2019), and there are many surprise factors apart from Shikhar Dhawan’s come back. Virat Kohli led team has called Manish Pandey and Shreyas Iyer for the ODI series for Middle-order batting. For bowling, however, the selectors have called Navdeep Saini to make his debut in the ODI series as the opening bowler.
Indian fans are content at the T20 victory but also worried because the team barely managed to win the initial matches against West Indies, and that’s why Shikhar Dhawan’s come back has heightened our expectations for the next series.
