The veteran Indian opener, Shikhar Dhawan has been making the most of the forced break due to the coronavirus pandemic by spending quality time with his family. With the cricketing action in the country coming to halt due to the virus crisis, Shikhar has often seen uploading videos with his son Zoravar.
On Wednesday, Dhawan went on to share a video on Twitter where he is seen giving horse-riding lessons to his son Zoraver. In the video, the father-son duo can be seen taking turns to ride the horse. Captioning the video, Shikhar wrote: “Teaching Zoraver the joy of horseback riding. He enjoyed time spent with his new friend”.

First, Dhawan is seen riding on the horse. In the second half of the video, Zoraver can be seen sitting on the horse while his father running alongside them, giving his son some tips. Dhawan recently got a haircut from “headmaster” Zoraver. The southpaw opener shared a video on his Instagram story where Zoraver could be seen giving the opener a “fresh look”.
Dhawan also shared a video of Zoraver making a chapati dressed in a Flash outfit. He will be seen playing for Delhi Capitals (DC) when and if and when the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) commences.
For Dhawan, the IPL 2020 was much more important as he was missing the competitive cricket due to an injury break and he would have been looking to make use of the T20 tournament to prove his match-fitness and strengthen his case to make a comeback into the national team.
According to reports, the IPL can be expected to take place between September and November, with the T20 World Cup in Australia set to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
