Indian cricket team stars Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya have been away from the game for quite some time now due to their respective injuries. However, their time during rehab is looking quite fruitful with Dhawan's new Instagram video. Watch the video below.
“Who said rehab is boring?”- Shikhar Dhawan
This afternoon Shikhar Dhawan posted a new video of his rehab where he can be seen enjoying his exercise with his teammate Hardik Pandya. In the background of the video, a classic title song from the movie “Yahan Ke Hum Sikander” is playing. Dhawan uploaded the video with a caption which read, “Who said rehab is boring? Yahan ke hum sikander!”
It seems that team senior opener Shikhar Dhawan has been plagued by injuries since his unfortunate time in 2019 ICC World Cup. He was ruled out there because of a thumb injury and then again in domestic cricket he suffered a knee injury in December 2019. Eventually, at the beginning of 2020, he made a comeback in the team during IND vs AUS ODI but ended up sustaining a shoulder injury during 3rd ODI.
However, his latest videos and post suggest that he is in good shape and his condition keeps improving every day. Dhawan is likely to make a comeback in the upcoming IPL 2020 where he will be seen playing for Delhi Capitals. Shikhar during this year IPL auction in Kolkata rejoined the Delhi team after being traded by the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Hardik Pandya on road to recovery
Indian team all-rounder Hardik Pandya who went through a successful surgery in October 2019 to treat his an acute lower-back injury, was seen performing net session yesterday. Watch the video below.
Pandya was ruled out last month for the test team in Indian A tour of New Zealand after failing the fitness test. Now it is evident with his successful net practice session at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) that he is recovering really well.
However, it is still unclear whether he will make a comeback in the next month IND vs SA ODI series.
