India vs West Indies: Shikhar Dhawan Battles It Out With Son Zoravar

New Delhi: India opener Shikhar Dhawan might have a hectic schedule thanks to India playing non-stop cricket, but with his wife and son Zoravar travelling with him, Dhawan is making the most of the time he gets off the field as he switches off from the pressure of international cricket to play with his son.

And Dhawan has now posted a photo on Instagram where he is busy playing with his son in the West Indies. The post reads: “Love playing with my son.. he is Lion and i am T-Rex..Guess who won?? .”

Opener Dhawan has continued in the West Indies from where he left in the Champions Trophy and has extended his rich form as he hit 87 in the first ODI between India and West Indies in Port of Spain. India batted 39.2 overs and had some positives to take from the game before rain played spoilsport and the match had to be called off.

Along with Ajinkya Rahane, Dhawan put on 132 runs for the first wicket. While Dhawan hit 87 off 92 balls with 8 boundaries and two sixes, Rahane was slightly slower in his approach and scored 62 off 78 balls with 8 boundaries.

It was a good outing for the Indian top-three as Dhawan, Rahane and Virat Kohli (32*) got runs even though the game was abandoned due to rain. Yuvraj Singh was the only batsman who looked off colour as he hit 4 off 10 balls.
