Team India opener Shikhar Dhawan was not included in the 18-man squad for the upcoming four-match Test series against Australia scheduled to commence from December 6. After a string of poor performances in the longest format, the BCCI decided to drop the 32-year-old for the Test series Down Under.
Reflecting upon his ouster from the team, Dhawan said that he was gutted after knowing about his Test snub but also asserted he has moved on beyond that. “Yes, I was a bit sad but I have moved on and I am in a good frame of mind. I am in a happy positive mood. I am enjoying my game. I have got a bit off time and I am going to enjoy my training and get myself fitter. I am happy and once I am happy things go well for me,” Dhawan said.
