‘Maybe it’s not my time’: Shikhar Dhawan isn’t too bothered about not being considered for T20Is

Written by Abhishek Patil

Despite his impressive show in the IPL over the years, Shikhar Dhawan is overlooked for T20Is, but the 36-year-old left-handed batter isn’t too bothered about it and said that maybe this is not his time.

“To be honest. I don’t feel any disappointment as such. I feel that there is a time for everything, and maybe it’s not my time. Maybe I lack something that I haven’t been able to do too well. No worries, I gave my best and that’s what matters. Till the time I am happy and content, that is all I care about. It’s not like if my name doesn’t come, I will be affected or anything like that. I am in a very good space; I am doing my best,” Dhawan told Sports Tak.

The BCCI will announce the Indian squad for the upcoming Asia Cup T20 tournament on Monday (August 8), and even though there are negligible chances, it will be interesting to see if the top-scorer of the previous edition of the six-team tournament will be considered.

“If the opportunity is provided, then why not? When I play in the IPL, I try my best to perform. And if I do well there, I might get a chance. The rest is up to the selectors… what their thought process is, what their vision is. Like I said, if it comes, great, but even if it doesn’t, that’s also fine. I am keeping myself fit and strong, and whenever I get the opportunity, I am ready for it,” he added.
