Watch: Shikhar Dhawan plays terrace cricket with his family – and gets out!


You can take Shikhar Dhawan out of cricket, but you can’t take cricket out of him. On Tuesday, the left-handed batsman shared a video of him playing cricket on the terrace of his house with his relatives and wished all his fans a Happy Bhai Dooj. The Indian opener will be back in action for the upcoming T20I series against Bangladesh which starts November 3 onwards.

On the occasion of Bhai Dooj, Dhawan posted a picture with his family captioning,

“Had a good time with the family today. Such days always make me so happy. Happy Bhai Dooj to everyone.”


He then uploaded a video in which he can be seen playing cricket on the terrace with his relatives. The Delhi batsman defended a couple of deliveries before getting out and he captioned the video as “Family waali cricket ka mazaa hi kuch aur hai”


Since his injury in the group game against Australia at this year’s World Cup, Dhawan hasn’t been in the best form. During his comeback, he managed to score just 38 runs in two games. And in the T20I series against South Africa his slump continued as he scored 76 runs at an average of 38.

However, the 33-year-old will look forward to regain his dangerous form in the T20I series against Bangladesh. Feroze Shah Kotla now renamed as the Arun Jaitley Stadium will host the first match on November 3, while the other two matches will be played in Rajkot and Nagpur on November 7 and 10, respectively.
