While the other Indian cricket stars are currently resting after returning from the tour to Australia and New Zealand, Shikhar Dhawan decided to try his hand at a new sport
The men in blue have through a hectic schedule since last year, following the one last series against the Aussies before the World cup commences. The team seems to have a few days off to have a leisure time of their own. Left hander Shikhar Dhawan has been one such Indian player who was spotted enjoying his own sweet leisure time ahead of the limited over home fixtures against Australia.
Dhawan went on horse-riding spree on Tuesday and shared a video of on Twitter. It looked like apart from his brilliant batting abilities he was quite an expert in horse-riding too. Dhawan captained the video as“Jatt Shaunkiyaa tey Shaunk poore karda. #horsebackriding #horseriding #learninghorseriding #tuesdaythoughts #TuesdayMotivation (If Jatt has passion, he finishes it”)

As far as his cricket performance is considered, it has been a roller-coaster ride for him in the previous tours of Australia and New Zealand. However, it might be still an obvious point of him securing a place in for the World Cup.
Dhawan had wrapped the Australia series as the top run-getter with 117 runs at an average of 58.50 in three match T20I series. The southpaw however failed miserably in the ODI series and struggled for form. Dhawan could only manage 55 runs in three matches at an average of 18.33.
Dhawan however made a good comeback in the New Zealand series, where he scored 188 runs from five matches at an average of 47 and strike rate of 81.74 during the five-match series, ending the series as the second highest scorer for India after Ambati Rayudu.
There are only seven international matches remaining ahead of ICC World Cup 2019. As far as stats are concerned, Dhawan had quite average in the tours of Australia and New Zealand by his standards. Dhawan will be looking forward to pick up his pace when the men in blue take on Australia at home for 2T20Is and 5 ODIs starting from February 24.
