Shikhar Dhawan will be missing the first three ODI matches in the series against Australia, which started on August 17. The Indian opener is with his wife Ayesha Mukherjee who is reportedly unwell. Dhawan took to Twitter and informed his fans that he will be his wife’s “strength” as she goes into surgery. Gabbar posted a picture of himself and his wife and captioned it,”“Glad to be here with my wife. Will be her strength at this moment of time. hope surgery is going to go well in the coming few days.” In an outpouring of massive support, Twitterati reacted and said that everything is going to be fine.

With Dhawan not available to offer his service to Virat Kohli’s Indian team, India has opted for Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma. Dhawan had earlier missed the fifth ODI and the lone T20I during India’s tour to Sri Lanka to take care of his mother.

Dhawan suffered from poor form and injuries for a better part of 2016 and the first of 2017. He then made a return to the Indian ODI squad in the ICC Champions Trophy. Since then, he has been in scintillating form. He also made his return to the Test squad in the tour of Sri Lanka. He played two Tests, scoring centuries on both occasions.

India host Australia for a five-match ODI series followed by a three-match T20I series. The first match is at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram stadium on September 17. India had previously hosted Australia for a four-match Test series earlier in the year. Both India and Australia would be on a quest to become world number 1 in the ODI world rankings. The 5-0 win for India could be a rare first against Australia, will put them at the top of the ICC World rankings while a 4-1 win for the visitors will help them grab pole position. Meanwhile, as per ANI report, Kolhi during a press conference said, “I don’t play for three-figure mark, that is why I end up crossing it.”
