This Indian star batsman could miss T20 world cup 2022- Sunil Gavaskar-. Former veteran batsman of India Sunil Gavastar is of the opinion that Shikhar Dhawan’s could miss this years T20 world cup. He thinks that Shikhar Dhawan’s selection is unlikely to happen in T20 world cup 2022.
The leftarm opener has been the part of two T20 World Cups before. He played in T20 World Cup 2014 and 2016.
Dhawan has been phenomenol with the bat in this season IPL 2022. This has made Dhawan a strong contender for the T20 World Cup Squad.
However, his name missed the list selected for a five match series against South Africa. Instead new players with the likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan were given the chance.
Shikhar Dhawan has also missed the list to tour UK for a two match series against Ireland to be played in June 2022.
Sunil Gavaskar clearly says that he didn’t see Dhawan playing T20 World Cup 2022. Talking to Star Sports Gavaskar said,” No, I don’t see his name popping up”.
Further he says that if his name could appear anywhere, it would have been in squad playing with Ireland. If he is not in the squad playing against Ireland, I( Gavaskar) didn’t see his name in the T20 World Cup either.
