Is Shikhar Dhawan’s Career Finished In The T20?

The selection panel believes that young cricketers should get a chance to play in short formats like T20I, that is why Dhawan hasn’t been selected in the squad since the selection for T20 World Cup 2021 was made.

In May 2022, when the selection panel headed by Chetan Sharma announced the squad for the five-match T20I series against South Africa, fans were anticipating that Shikhar Dhawan will make his comeback. However, what happened was unexpected.

Dhawan who is India’s first choice in ODIs wasn’t selected for the T20I series even after his dream run in IPL 2022.

Justifying Dhawan’s absence from the squad a senior BCCI official stated “Shikhar has been a great servant of Indian cricket for over a decade. But in the T20s, you have to give chances to youngsters who have been doing well. Rahul had to make the tough call and we all agreed. Shikhar was informed by Rahul before the team was announced on Sunday”.

After Dhawan’s non-selection in the squad, it was anticipated that he will be part of the two-match T20I series against Ireland but even these expectations were shattered after the squad was announced on Wednesday.

Dhawan piled up 460 runs in 14 league stage matches in his first season itself which he played for Punjab Kings. And he even has an impressive track record but his absence from the team appears to be pertinent because young cricketers deserve a chance to showcase their skills.

As India doesn’t fall short when it comes to talents, every cricketer can’t be present in every match.

Thus, Dhawan’s absence from the team is not about his career being at stake or the selection team demurring his presence.
