The veteran Indian opener, Shikhar Dhawan, on Friday took to Twitter where he shared a video from his training session for his fans. The southpaw cricketer looked in good touch as he can be seen hitting the ball consistently from the sweet spot of his bat and made a pleasing sound.
Shikhar Dhawan in the caption of his tweet wrote, “Keeping the intensity going. Love the sound of the bat on ball”. He was seen hitting the ball on both sides of the ground as he looks to get ready for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 which is scheduled to take place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) this year. In the video, he can also be seen playing the reverse sweep shots.

Shikhar Dhawan has been one of the most active cricketers during the forced break due to the coronavirus pandemic as he keeps sharing fun photos and videos for his fans to keep them entertained on social media platforms. On Thursday, Dhawan shared a picture with his son Zoraver on Instagram in which the father-son duo could be seen smiling.
Shikhar has been missing competitive cricket since India’s home series against Australia as he got injured during the series. The southpaw was left out of India’s tour of New Zealand after he suffered a rib injury in the second ODI against Australia in January this year.
The veteran southpaw batsman will play for the Delhi Capitals in the 13tg edition of the IPL. Dhawan has been a part of the Delhi Capitals team since 2018.
During the 2019 edition of the IPL, Dhawan enjoyed a brilliant run for the DC as he amassed 521 runs to finish as the fourth-highest run-getter in the cash-rich league. Shikhar Dhawan is currently standing at the fifth position in the list of highest run-getters in IPL with 4,579 runs from 159 matches.
