India vs Australia: Twitter upset about the golden duck of Shikhar Dhawan

The fans were quite disappointed with the opener’s drought with the bat.

The First One Day International kick-started between India and Australia at Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Australia. Australia. After winning the 2-nil T20I series the visitors started to win their third consecutive toss on the trot in style. Skipper Aaron Finch had chosen to bat first as Australia started poorly.

After a poor start Usman Khawaja scored a fifty to rescue the Men in Black. Glenn Maxwell looked good again, but Mohammed Shami, who appeared in some incredible shape, knocked down his stumps. The finishing touch was provided by Alex Carey and Nathan Coulter-Nile as Australia managed to post 236/7 on the board in total.

As for India, Shikhar Dhawan has continued his weak ODI performance. For a golden duck, the opener was cast off. As usual, Dhawan had a cheeky grin on his face heading back to the pavilion. Known for his major top-order knocks, after the Asia Cup, the Delhi lad hasn’t been able to reproduce the same.

Although the left-hander scored in New Zealand for a few half-centuries, he wasn’t near his best anywhere. With the show being India’s last assignment before World Cup, the Men in Blue could be troubling signs. The positive note, however, is that Dhawan was renowned in ICC tournaments for his batting. He was the top run scorer for India in the previous World Cup, as well as the 2013 and 2017 Champions Trophy.

The fans have been very frustrated with the bat drought from the opener. In addition, others were irked by his smile even after being fired. Many felt Dhawan should be careful about showing such a reckless attitude. Although some feared that he could be dropped for KL Rahul, others thought that in the upcoming games he would prove his worth.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions based on Dhawan’s golden duck:
