Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, who came back to India after the limited-overs leg of the Australian tour, threw a reply at a distasteful comment from a user on his recent Instagram post. The Delhi Capitals player had posted a picture with teammates Yuzvendra Chahal and Deepak Chahar. This image was put up, as the three of them boarded the flight back to India.

The Photo Of Shikhar Dhawan And Co. That Went Viral And The Response From The Fan

“Aankhein nikal ke gotiyaan khelta hoon gotiyaan,” he captioned it in his very own Gabbar style.

What The Opener For The Indian Team Said In Response To The Insult?

However, amongst the many compliments that the Delhi based cricketer received, there was a user who commented on his looks and gameplay. The user said, “Tatti Shakal… Tatti gameplay.” (Your face and gameplay is shit)

This did not go down well with the cricketer and he was unhappy. He decided to eventually react and give it back to this Troller.

However, instead of blowing over the comment or replying with certain and fair rage, Shikhar Dhawan decided to handle matters in a cool manner. Dhawan didn’t get wrapped in anger, rather, came with an apt reply that stated- “Hanji aapke gharwale bhi yehi keh rahe they aapke baarein.” (Your household says the same thing about you.)

The user’s comment seemed baseless given Shikhar Dhawan comes back from the tour with 173 runs from five innings under his belt. That makes him the fourth-highest run-scorer in both the series combined. The Delhi Capitals batsman had spent two months in the United Arab Emirates. It was with the IPL franchise before taking off for Australia. In the Indian Premier League, Dhawan scored 618 runs from 17 innings. He stood second in the race of Orange Cap after Kings XI Punjab skipper KL Rahul. 

The southpaw also announced himself as the fifth batsman to cross the 5000 runs mark in IPL after Sunrisers Hyderabad’s captain David Warner. His form in the shortest format reflected in Australia when India was able to dominate the home team in a 2-1 T20 series.

Earlier Australia had shocked India with the same result in the One Day International series. That is where Aaron Finch and company emerged victorious on two occasions. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal also commented on the post. He was asking Dhawan about why there’s no mask on in the picture? Shikhar very sincerely responded, claiming the bio bubble had kept the three of them safe.

Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Shikhar Dhawan and a few others flew back to India, leaving a chunk of the team in Australia gearing up for the Border-Gavaskar trophy. The four-match Test series will start with the pink-ball (Day and Night) Test at Adelaide on December 17. 

The Indian team that lifted the trophy in 2018-19. They will be under some pressure given their regular skipper Virat Kohli will return to India. That is owing to the birth of his first child scheduled in January. Ajinkya Rahane will be leading the team in Kohli’s absence. Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan’s regular limited-overs partner Rohit Sharma has cleared the latest fitness test. He is included in the squad for the first test. The Indian team (A) is already playing Australia A in practice matches.
