Shikhar Dhawan Injures Knee, but Brings Smiles at Hospital

India limited-overs opener Shikhar Dhawan has not been in the best of forms with the bat, but he brought smiles on the faces of hospital staff where he was taken following a minor injury.

Dhawan had suffered a cut in his knee during a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match against Maharashtra on Thursday and was taken to a hospital where he clicked selfies with staff members.

Posting a few images on Twitter, Dhawan wrote: "We Fall, We Break, but then... We Rise. We heal and we overcome, and the only thing you have control over is how you respond to any situation. Here's to being positive and happy in every situation that life throws at you. Will be back in action in 4-5 days."

While Delhi registered a 77-run win over Maharashtra, Dhawan could only play a 24-run knock. After putting 167/5, Delhi wrapped up their opponents at 90 runs in 17.2 overs.

Dhawan has been struggling for form recently, having made only 87 runs from five matches in the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament. Prior to that, he had average returns in the T20Is against Bangladesh, tallying 91 runs from three innings.

The selectors, though, have kept their faith in Dhawan and picked him in both the ODI and T20I squads for the upcoming home series against West Indies.
