Team India’s opener Shikhar Dhawan, who is sitting out the first three ODIs of India’s five-match series against Australia to be with his ailing wife, made a touching post on Twitter saying that he will be his wife’s “strength” at this moment.
“Glad to be here with my wife. Will be her strength at this moment of time. hope surgery is going to go well in the coming few days,” said the Indian opener.
In the absence of Dhawan, India will hence be going for Ajinkya Rahane as Rohit Sharma’s opening partner. Dhawan had earlier missed the fifth ODI and then a T20I during India’s tour of Sri Lanka to take care of his mother.
