Shikhar Dhawan played his last test match under the captaincy of Virat Kohli in 2018 | Team India: Test career of this player immersed in the captaincy of Virat! This record was made in the debut match

Team India: Whenever it comes to the most successful captains of Team India in Test cricket, Virat Kohli’s name comes at the top. The team had performed very well under the captaincy of Virat, many players also got a chance in the team, but there is also a player whose Test career was drowned in the captaincy of Virat. This player has been out of the Test team since 2018 and now it seems difficult to return.

Test career of this player dipped

As difficult as it is considered to be selected in Team India, it is many times more difficult to retain oneself in the team. The biggest example of this is 35-year-old Shikhar Dhawan. Shikhar Dhawan was considered the big match winner of Team India, but he played his last Test under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. Dhawan has not been included in the Indian Test team for a long time. The biggest reason for this has been their poor performance. He played his last Test against England in the year 2018.

Difficult to return to Test team

Shikhar Dhawan played his first test match against Australia in 2013. He created a ruckus by making 187 in his very first innings. But in place of Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are now given more chances in the Test team. In Test cricket, Shikhar has scored more than 2300 runs in 34 matches at an average of 41, in which he has scored 7 centuries.

Dhawan’s record in debut test

The record of making the highest score in the first match while debuting in the Test is the name of opener Shikhar Dhawan among Indians. Dhawan made this big record by making 187 in Mohali Test against Australia on 14 March 2013. In this match, Team India also won the match on the basis of Shikhar Dhawan’s innings. Team India beat Australia by 6 wickets. Apart from the Test, now it has become difficult for Shikhar Dhawan to make a place in the T20 team as well.
