The young Indian team, led by veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan, has reached Sri Lanka for the ODI and T20 series. This will be the first time that two Indian teams will be playing a series in two countries at the same time in different formats. On one hand, Virat Kohli will lead the Test team in England and on the other hand Shikhar Dhawan, popularly known as ‘Gabbar’ in Sri Lanka, will be captaining the ODI and T20I series teams. Shikhar Dhawan is captaining the Indian ODI and T20 team for the first time, so let’s know how his figures are against Sri Lanka.
Shikhar Dhawan has previously captained in a few IPL matches but the experience of captaining the national team will be new to him. As everyone knows, opener Dhawan is a smoky batsman and one of the most calm Indian players. He has been playing first-class cricket for the last 17 years and international cricket for the last 11 years.
