Why did Shikhar Dhawan have to say that I am not afraid of anything being taken away from me?
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 starts on Friday. Let us tell you that before this three-match series, the Indian captain Shikhar Dhawan Has said a great thing. Shikhar Dhawan said that he is not afraid to take anything. Ghawan has said this on the question of being stripped of ODI captaincy in Zimbabwe. Dhawan was recently made the captain of the ODI team on the tour of Zimbabwe but suddenly KL Rahul entered the team and then took over the captaincy from Dhawan.
On the issue of being stripped of the captaincy in Zimbabwe, Dhawan said, “I have no fear of being stripped of the captaincy.” We have come empty handed in this world and will leave empty handed, everything will remain here. Dhawan may be talking like this in front of the media, but when he was removed from the captaincy, questions are being raised.

Important series for Dhawan
The series is very important for Shikhar Dhawan as a player. Dhawan is certain to be selected for next year’s World Cup. If Dhawan is not selected in the first Test and T20 format and if he performs poorly in the ODI format, then difficulties may increase for him. Please tell that in the last ODI series, Dhawan could score only 25 runs in 3 matches against South Africa. That’s why the New Zealand ODI series is important for him.
Dhawan also has a poor ODI record in New Zealand. This player has scored 373 runs in 11 matches at an average of just 37.30. Meanwhile, Dhawan’s strike rate is only 81. It is obvious that it will not be easy for him to score runs in the New Zealand ODI series.
New Zealand’s defeat in ODI series is heavy
Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson made their ODI series debut on Thursday. BCCI has posted this video of the captains of both the teams. Team India may have won the T20 series, but the Kiwi team is dominating in the ODI series. In the last tour, New Zealand beat India 3-0 at home.
