India’s veteran cricketer Shikhar Dhawan is not part of the team’s plans in the shortest format of the game. The experienced player was not even considered for selection for the T20 World Cup 2022.

However, he has been actively plying his trade for India in One-Day Internationals. In Rohit Sharma’s absence, Shikhar Dhawan has led the young Indian cricket team from the front for some important assignments.

Dhawan has been one of the integral members for Team India as far as the ICC events are concerned. Unfortunately, he didn’t get selected for the ICC Men’s Twenty20 World Cup 2022.

The experienced southpaw’s last T20I came against Sri Lanka in 2021. Since then, he didn’t play more T20Is for India as he was busy focusing on the 50-over format.

Shikhar Dhawan dropped from T20Is because he couldn’t play aggressively

The Indian selectors didn’t pick Shikhar Dhawan in the shortest format of the game because he couldn’t attainย  the ultra-aggressive approach. However, the Indian openers in the ongoing T20 World Cup hardly made their presence count at the crease.

The likes of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul were inconsistent in the tournament. While KL Rahul scored two fifties, Rohit Sharma scored just one half-century to his name. Both of them failed to up their ante in the second semi-final clash against England cricket team.

While Dhawan was not picked in T20Is for not retaining the aggressive approach, the top 3 batters of the Indian cricket team failed to do justice to their batting attack as they batted at a strike rate of 100 in their first 25 balls against England. Jos Buttler and Co beat India by 10 wickets and cruised into the final.
