Shikhar Dhawan expressed contentment despite missing out on the ODI World Cup, citing acceptance and belief that it happened for his betterment.

Ahead of the ODI World Cup 2023, Shikhar Dhawan, a seasoned campaigner and leader in the Indian cricket team, found himself displaced from the squad as younger talents like Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal emerged. Despite leading the team in the absence of senior players, Dhawan gracefully accepted the situation, acknowledging the emergence of a new era in Indian cricket.

Reflecting on missing the World Cup, Dhawan expressed contentment, attributing it to divine will and emphasizing the belief that everything unfolds for the greater good.

“I couldn’t make it to the World Cup. At this age, I knew that it would be my last World Cup for the Indian team and after that, I could only play to a certain level. So, I couldn’t get in even when my performance was good but I didn’t feel bad about it. Whatever god gives, be happy in that. So I accepted that and thought it happened for my betterment,” Dhawan said when speaking to Karishma Mehta.

Punjab Kings, one of the Indian Premier League’s franchises yet to secure a title, holds high hopes for the 2024 season, according to the veteran batter. Envisioning team celebrations, strengthened bonds, and exemplary work ethics, Dhawan aims for success both on and off the field.

“I see us celebrating as a team. I see us creating a great bond. I see us having great work ethics and enjoying each other’s company and performing really good, winning lots of trophies and not just being good cricketers but getting defined as good human beings as well. Improving our communication and I see us creating better strategies and better plans,” he added.
