Indian Cricket Team is in prep-mode for the upcoming India vs Australia series. But one key player will be amiss from the first three ODIs.
Shikhar Dhawan will be missing the first three One Day Internationals of the Australia series because he has to take care of his ailing wife, Aesha Dhawan. A Zee News report stated that BCCI just released a statement,
Isn’t that the sweetest bit of information? He’s such a family man. This is not the first time Shikhar has requested for leave to be with his family.
During the Sri Lanka series, he dropped out to be with his ailing mother. BCCI had issued a statement on September 2nd, stating that he’s leaving for India mid-series to be with his sick mom.
“Shikhar Dhawan would be leaving for India tomorrow i.e. September 3rd to see his ailing mother. Dhawan’s mother is stable and is recovering well at the moment.”
And, now he’s taking leave to be with his wife Aesha.
Upon hearing the news, netizens combined forces. From awws to husband goals, Shikhar’s decision is getting all the praises and love.
