Shikhar Dhawan Takes The Bottle Cap Challenge Right After Comeback From Injury | #BottleCapChallenge
Shikhar Dhawan became the latest personality to take up the viral #BottleCapChallenge, accepting the challenge from former Indian All-Rounder Yuvraj Singh.
Dhawan, whose presence in the ICC World Cup 2019 was cut short due to an injury, posted a video of himself doing the challenge by hitting a ball towards the bottle and thus dislodging the cap – much like Yuvraj had done in his video.
The Indian opener also added that this was the first time since he was injured during the World Cup 2019 that he has picked up a bat.
“Yuvi Paaji, here is my #BottleCapChallenge! This is the first time I am picking my bat up after my injury..feels good to be back,” Dhawan wrote on his Twitter handle along with the video.
Dhawan had unfortunately injured his thumb during India’s match against Australia in the World Cup last month. He suffered the injury early in the innings but batted through the pain and put up a century.
He was initially kept in England itself as the team management believed the injury wasn’t a serious one and that he would be available for selection later in the tournament. However, he was later diagnosed with a broken thumb that would rule him out of the World Cup tournament and Rishabh Pant came in as his replacement.
With his injury now seemingly in the past, Dhawan might be in queue to be picked in the ODI and T20I side to tour West Indies in August.
