ICC World Cup 2019: Shikhar Dhawan brutally trolled for poor performance against South Africa
Southampton : Opener Shikhar Dhawan once again failed to provide a good start as Team India started their 228-run chase against South Africa on Wednesday. Dhawan lost his wickets for eight runs off 12 balls.
It was a back of a length delivery that forced an edge from Shikhar Dhawan which was easily caught by Quinton De Kock. India lost their first wicket with the score on 13 in the sixth over.
Twitter users trolled him brutally on the social media for failing to provide a good start to Team India:

Never performs at bigger matches whenever u need him.He had under performed many many times .Still he is opening .
Why they keep selecting him ?
Are we short of talents in India ?

Shikhar Dhawan is going to spoil India' s chances. He looked really uncomfortable against a quality bowling attack. It's better to try KL Rahul with Rohit and Jadeja drafted into the side. #INDvSA #ICCWC2019— Sujan Salian (@sujansalian) June 5, 2019
On the other hand, India did well with the ball. With brilliant attempt by Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal, Team India restricted the Proteas on 227 runs.
“We wanted to bowl hard lengths with the new ball, Test match lengths and early wickets are always helpful for the team and we are happy we were able to do it. Not too much… It was a T20 competition and he was in my team but over here there was a lot of help (If he worked out QdK during his MI days),” said Bumrah at the mid-innings break.
