Asia Cup 2018: India has successfully defended their Asia Cup title and clinched it for a record seventh time. But how many cricket lovers saw India skipper Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan pamper little Zoravar just ahead of the post-match presentation? Very few! It was adorable to see Dhawan play the ideal dad as he carries his kid Zoravar on his lap as Rohit has an interaction with Zoravar. Dhawan the kisses Zoravar in a candid father-son moment.
Not long ago, Rohit was seen trying to scare Zoravar in a hotel room in Dubai. Rohit has been spotted many times getting playful with Zoravar. Also, the two wives of the respective cricketers are usually seen together in the stands rooting for their husbands. Seems like the on-field bonding is playing a huge part in their on-field chemistry as they also notched up their 13th-century run-stand with each other as openers.
Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan picked up the Man of the Series award for being the highest run-getter of the tournament as India beat Bangladesh in a last-ball thriller.
Unfortunately, after leading India to the Asia Cup triumph, both the players have been snubbed for the upcoming West Indies series. Murali Vijay has also not been picked and the only logical reason behind this can be the poor form of Dhawan and Vijay in the English Tests and with Rohit, it seems the management does not have faith in him when it comes to red ball cricket.
Hanuma Vihari, Mayank Agarwal, Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw find spots in the team, whereas Karun Nair has been left out.
India squad for Windies Tests: Virat Kohli (C), KL Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (VC), Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (WK), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, and Shardul Thakur.
