India announced the squad for the 2023 Asian Games on Friday (July 14). Many young players have got a chance in this team and Maharashtra captain Rituraj Gaikwad will lead this team. Not a single experienced player has been included in this team. Experienced opener Shikhar Dhawan, who has been in the news for a long time, was said to be the captain for the tournament. However, he also failed to make his place in the team. So now the question is being asked whether his illustrious international career has come to an end.
After it was announced that the Indian team would go to the Asian tournament, many people were saying that Shikhar would be the captain of the team. However, BCCI and the team management thought of the future and gave the leadership to Rituraj. The team will feature Yashasvi Jaiswal who recently made his international debut along with Rituraj as the opener and Punjab’s young wicketkeeper Prabhasimran Gill. It is said that it will be difficult for Shikhar Dhawan to make his debut in the Indian team.
Currently, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill play the role of openers in the Indian team. On the ongoing West Indies tour, Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a century in the first innings and secured his place for the next few years. So it seems impossible for the 38-year-old Shikhar to get another chance now.
In his career, Shikhar has played 34 Tests, 167 ODIs and 68 T20Is for the Indian team. In this, more than ten thousand runs have come out of his bat, and he has been seen performing consistently in ICC competitions. He has also led the Indian team in the past few series.
Many fans took to social media to express their disappointment as he did not get a place in the Indian team. Some felt that a servant of Indian cricket should have been given more chances.
