Shikhar Dhawan works on his reflexes ahead of India’s tour of West Indies all set to begin from August 3 with a three-match T20I series
Ruled out from the Indian squad from the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup due to a broken left thumb, opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has finally commenced with his preparations for the West Indies tour set to begin from August 3.
Dhawan had received a heavy blow courtesy a rising delivery bowled by the Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins during the league match of the recently concluded World Cup. The blow had ultimately ruled him out of the marquee tournament.
However, a latest video posted by the 33-year-old provides enough evidence that the star opener is finally recovering back to his prime fitness.
Dhawan selected for the limited overs series
The selection committee panel led by MSK Prasad have picked up Dhawan for the upcoming limited-overs series, starting with the three-match T20I series in Florida, USA.
This is a clear indication that the southpaw is likely to be fit for the tour, and will join Rohit Sharma at the top of the order.
In this video posted by Dhawan via his Instagram handle, he is seen catch practising with the ball being deflected off the net.
The 33-year-old is standing close to the net, in order to catch them in as minimum reaction time as possible. He has posted the video with the caption- “Working on my reflexes!” and has also asked his followers to guess the accurate reaction time for his catches.
