The Delhi Capitals’ teammates Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer are having a ball of a time in the Carribean islands ahead of the final ODI game. Though the form of Shikhar Dhawan isn’t great in the middle, he is having a fun time at it’s best, which he usually does. He got the able partners in the form of Shreyas Iyer and Mayank Agarwal.
The Indian National Cricket Team will look to seal the deal in the final ODI of the three-match series at the Queen’s Park Oval on Wednesday. With the opening game washed out, the Indians have taken a 1-0 lead and the last game of the series will decide if India will lift the ODI trophy as well after a clinical show in the T20I series.
Shikhar Dhawan needs to deliver:
Enduring consecutive failures with unimpressive scores in the Twenty20 International series and a single-digit score in the second ODI, the Delhi opener is under the pump to come up with an impact knock. Especially, with the youngsters pushing for a place in the team.
Shikhar Dhawan scored a sensational hundred against Australia in ICC World Cup 2019. However, during the course of the knock, he hurt his finger, which saw him being ruled out of the tournament.
On the other hand, Shreyas Iyer, who is coming into the team after a year, smashed a 68-ball 71. It played a crucial role in India’s 59-run win over the West Indies in the second ODI at Port-of-Spain on Sunday. The knock gave him many appreciations from the former cricketers and analysts. And also, gained the trust of the team management.
