Shikhar Dhawan broke his silence on KL Rahul being made the captain of the ODI team

Indian vice-captain Shikhar Dhawan expressed happiness over the return of KL Rahul and said that he will get a lot of advantage through the Zimbabwe series (ZIM vs IND) ahead of the Asia Cup 2022. Rahul is coming back after a long time and he was earlier selected for the Asia Cup. However, on passing the fitness test, the right-handed batsman was included for the tour of Zimbabwe and was appointed the captain of the team.

Rahul has not played any competitive cricket since IPL 2022. He was named captain of the team for the home series against South Africa but was ruled out due to injury a day before the start of the series. After that he had to undergo surgery. It was expected that he would be seen in action during the T20 series against West Indies, but due to being a victim of Kovid-19, he was disappointed here too and he missed the series.

However, now that he is fit, he is ready to lead the team on the Zimbabwe tour. Veteran batsman Shikhar Dhawan was named captain for the first tour but was appointed vice-captain after Rahul returned.

In a press conference held in Harare on Tuesday, Shikhar Dhawan said,

It is great news that KL is back in the team and leading the team. He is one of the key players of the Indian team. In view of the upcoming Asia Cup, this is a good opportunity for them. I am sure he will gain a lot from this tour.

Zimbabwe is playing good cricket - Shikhar Dhawan

India have clean sweep Zimbabwe in their last three series but Shikhar Dhawan is in no mood to take the opposition team lightly. On the other hand, Zimbabwe's recent performance has been very good and the team has defeated Bangladesh in both T20 and ODI series. In this way their confidence will be very high.

Shikhar Dhawan praised Zimbabwe's recent performance and said,

It is a good thing that they won against Bangladesh. They are playing good cricket. This is a good thing for us. We will not take anything lightly. A good team always pays attention to its process. We should make sure that whenever we take on a team, we do our process properly. Our focus will be on winning.
