Even after consistently performing for India in limited-overs format and his respective franchise in IPL, Dhawan has been ignored again by the selection committee for the World Cup 203.

The approach of Dhawan is another reason behind his omission from the Indian team. He usually starts his innings in a slow manner. His strike rate is quite low when compared to the likes of KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan. There is also availability of a lot of players for the opening spot.  KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Virat Kohli are the names available for that spot.

Shikhar Dhawan has lost his place in Indian Team a long time ago. Dhawan is not included in the plans of selectors. This happened because of plenty of opening options available for team India. The young players are also making an entry in the team and that’s why there was no place for Dhawan in Indian Test Team. One of the opening spot is already booked for the skipper Rohit Sharma. The second one has been secured by talented youngster Shubman Gill with his outstanding performance. Even in their absence, the selectors used to prefer KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad.
