Shikhar Dhawan says I don’t have any fear about losing the job of captaincy india vs new zealand. Shikhar Dhawan said on the matter of being removed from the captaincy – I am not afraid of snatching anything

Shikhar Dhawan will be seen captaining Team India in the ODI series against New Zealand. The three-match series is starting from Friday.

Why did Dhawan say – he is not afraid

The Indian team defeated New Zealand 1-0 in the T20 series and now it is the turn of the ODI series. The ODI series is starting from Friday. Let us tell you that before this three-match series, Indian captain Shikhar Dhawan has said a big thing. Shikhar Dhawan said that he is not afraid of snatching anything. Actually Dhawan said this on the question of snatching ODI captaincy from him in Zimbabwe. Dhawan was recently made the captain of the ODI team on the tour of Zimbabwe, but then suddenly KL Rahul entered the team and after that he was given the captaincy by taking the captaincy from Dhawan.

On the issue of stepping down from the captaincy in Zimbabwe, Dhawan said, ‘I have no fear of taking away the captaincy. We came into this world empty handed and will leave empty handed. Everything will remain here. Dhawan may have been saying such things in front of the media, but when he was removed from the captaincy, a lot of questions were raised.

Series is important for Dhawan

This series is also very important for Shikhar Dhawan as a player. Actually, it is not decided that Dhawan will be selected in the ODI World Cup next year. Dhawan is already not selected in Test and T20 format and if he performs even poorly in ODI format then difficulties may increase for him. Let us tell you that in the last ODI series, Dhawan was able to score only 25 runs in 3 matches against South Africa. That’s why New Zealand ODI series is important for them.

Dhawan also has a poor ODI record in New Zealand. This player has scored 373 runs in 11 matches played here at an average of just 37.30. The thing to note is that during this period Dhawan’s strike rate has been only 81. In such a situation, it is clear that it will not be so easy for him to score runs in the New Zealand ODI series.
