IND vs SL: Shikhar Dhawan To Retire From International Cricket. Shikhar Dhawan, a seasoned Indian batsman, was left off of the BCCI’s ODI selection for the forthcoming home series against Sri Lanka. Three ODIs and as many ODIs make up the series. Following the three T20Is on January 3, 5, and 7, the three ODIs will be played on January 10, 12, and 15. India just defeated New Zealand 1-0 in an ODI series led by Dhawan.

In ODIs in 2022, Shikhar Dhawan has had trouble keeping up his form. The lowest numbers he has had since his comeback in 2013 are his average of 34.40 and strike rate of 74.21 in 2022. He last participated in an Indian test match in 2018 and a T20 international against Sri Lanka in 2021.

According to reports on Cricketaddictor, the current selection committee believes that Dhawan’s ODI career is almost over. The selection committee, led by Chetan Sharma, has been allowed more time to complete their task, which will be the third round of Ranji Trophy matches.

Regarding Shikhar Dhawan’s ODI statistics for 2022, he scored 688 runs at an average of 34.40 in 22 games this year, which is the lowest since his return to ODI cricket in 2013. In 2019, he achieved his last ODI century. He has six scores of fifty or above this year.

The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) panel, presided over by Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjpe, and Sulakshna Naik, will convene on December 29 to discuss the applications for the upcoming panel of selectors.

The senior players Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Shikhar Dhawan were all unanimously dropped from the squads chosen by the current selection committee for the SL series.

The sources close to Cricketaddictor have further indicated that Dhawan’s decision to return to ODI cricket will be strongly influenced by how fast the board forms a new selection committee and whether they want him to do so at the age of 37.

The growth of Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan would make it harder for Dhawan to be reassessed for a recall in ODIs given that the management has enough young players at their disposal in ODI cricket. In 2022, Gill averaged over 70 and had a 102.57 strike rate, but Kishan recently became just the fourth Indian batsman to get two hundreds in one-day international cricket.
