India’s veteran batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the ODI series against Sri Lanka. What was feared happened on Tuesday (December 27). Dhawan’s name was not in the ODI team. Since then, the fans started speculating that he would no longer be seen in Team India’s jersey. The selectors are thinking about the future. If Dhawan is not selected again, then his pairing with Rohit Sharma will not be seen.
Dhawan and Rohit Sharma formed a formidable opening pair for India in ODIs. Together they shared a partnership of 5193 runs in 117 innings. Dhawan and Rohit finished second in terms of adding the most runs. Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly did more than him. Both added 8227 runs in 176 innings. Dhawan and Rohit are at seventh place in terms of most successful pairs in the world.
