The veteran Indian opener, Shikhar Dhawan took to Instagram and shared a video of him dancing with his son Zoravar that not only caught the attention of his fans but also of the West Indies legend Brian Lara. Dhawan, who is spending time at home amid coronavirus pandemic, is using the forced break from cricket to enhance some of his forgotten skills like taking boxing classes from his wife Ayesha or dancing to classic Bollywood songs.
In the video, Shikhar can be seen trying to do the ‘siren beat’ challenge but the southpaw was interrupted by his son Zoravar who’s special cameo turns the video into a hilarious one. Captioning the video, Dhawan wrote: “Dance ki asli jodi Like father, like son! #tiktok.”
Brian Lara posted two laughing emojis on Dhawan’s post while the Indian batsman responded with a thumbs up emoji to the West Indies’ legend’s comment. Apart from the Lara, fans also flooded the post with heart-warming messages for the Indian batsman.
“Jatt ji chaa gye tuc,” a fan said. “Gabbar, you are my fav,” another one joined in.
Recently, Shikhar took to Instagram and posted a video of him playing flute to beat the lockdown blues. During a chat with former Indian all-rounder, Irfan Pathan revealed that his favorite captain is MS Dhoni. He also named Rohit Sharma as his favorite batting partner.
During a chat with Pathan, Dhawan said, “(Best batting partner will be) Rohit Sharma… I have only played under Virat and Dhoni, so, as of now, Dhoni bhai.”
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was postponed indefinitely by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Speaking on the future of IPL, Shikhar said that the tournament should take place to spread positivity among people.
The southpaw elaborated, “Of course, IPL should take place because people will get positivity from it. Currently, there is only coronavirus news and fear because of it.”
