Shikhar Dhawan becomes the first cricketer in history to get injured while walking from the pitch to the pavilion

Shikhar Dhawan has been criticized a lot off late for his batting failures. But the very latest criticism levied on him by a commentator is of the highest order. Shikhar had lost his batting spot to the talented KL Rahul, but Rahul’s injury came as a much wanted lifeline for Shikhar.

Expectations were huge on Dhawan’s shoulders, and Dhawan did what he always does; not fulfilling those expectations. Virat had given him a chance inspite of having a senior opener like gambhir in the team.

One of the Hindi commentators named Bablu Chaurasia has accused Dhawan of creating a bad name in history books. Apparently, in the 2nd test match Dhawan became the first cricketer in history to get injured while returning from the batting crease to the pavilion after spending just 2-3 minutes on the crease.

This is a serious record and no one will come close to break it in the several years to come. Shikhar is proud to finally have his name carved in the history of the gentleman’s game. BCCI will felicitate him when he plays next, which by the way might take some while, given his present form.
