Shikhar Dhawan who is in the UAE with his Delhi Capitals teammates last week took to Instagram to share a picture of himself enjoying sunshine in Dubai.
“Sunny Dubai bringing out the smiles,” Dhawan captioned the picture. Soon after the Opening batsman posted a picture with Indian team’s spin twins Yuzvendra Chahal & Kuldeep Yadav took a cheeky dig at Dhawan. Kuldeep has mocked the left-handed batsman about his hair while Chahal taking a hilarious dig on Shikhar Dhawan said that since Ayesha (Dhawan’s wife) was in Australia, there was less stress for Dhawan so he had grown some hair.
“@kuldeep_18 bhabhi Australia mein hai bro so no pitai Abhi.. toh baal aagaye samjh rahe ho na samjh rahe ho na @shikhardofficial,” Chahal said.
Continuing the hilarious banter with Chahal, Dhawan said that he has been married for years but warned that Chahal, who recently got engaged, to stay alert or he will lose his front teeth.
“Baba hum toh puraane chawal ho gaye. Tu abhi naya hi engaged hua hai, tu sambhal ke chal kahin aagey waale badey daant aur bahaar nah aa jayein, samjh gya nah,” Dhawan wrote.
Both Chahal & Dhawan will face each other in few weeks when the IPL 2020 gets started in the UAE from September 19th. Last year Dhawan was the highest run getter for Delhi Capitals as he scored 521 runs in just 16 matches at an average of 34.73. The opening batter hit five half-centuries in the tournament.
On the other hand Chahal was the top performer in terms of bowling for RCB. In the last IPL season Chahal picked up 18 wickets in the tournament & kept his economy rate under eight.
