Shikhar Dhawan enjoys family time ahead of SA Test


Cape Town, known for its natural beauty and exotic beaches, attracts millions of tourists from around the world. The Indian cricket team touring South Africa seems to be making the most of their off day at the spectacular Cape Town before the first test starting on December 5.
The Indian opening batsman, Shikhar Dhawan posted family photos on his Instagram handle. He is accompanied by his wife Ayesha Mukherjee and son Zoravar Dhawan in the photographs against a stunning coastal backdrop.

Only Murali Vijay looks like a certainty among the three Indian openers for the first test against South Africa starting Friday, January 5 at Newlands, Cape Town. The left-hander fights for a place in the playing XI with KL Rahul.
The Southpaw had scores of 23, 67, 8 and 94 in the last test series India played, against Sri Lanka. In his 28-test career so far, Dhawan has amassed 2014 runs at batting average of 43.78.
