Struggling India opener Shikhar Dhawan did a Kohli and put up a passionate plea for fans’ support, following widespread criticism after India lost the Test series 3-1 in England. India lost the Southampton Test by 60 runs to concede the series.
“People who have been writing negative stuff. We are also hurt the day you guys are. It is important to learn from our mistakes and move forward. We give our best for the nation everytime we walk on the ground and most important thing is as a team we should be in a good mindset before the next game,” Dhawan posted on his Instagram page.
Dhawan has managed only 158 runs from three matches. KL Rahul has also struggled while Murali Vijay was dropped after constant failures.
“We cannot change the past. So we do our hardwork at the ground as always and keep our process strong. After practice it is important to laugh and be happy so we create positivity in the team. That’s what champions do. Easy to be happy when winning. Warriors stay positive when things are down too. Thanks to the fans who are still supporting us,” Dhawan further wrote.
