Shikhar Dhawan has been India’s most reliable opener in the ODIs alongside Rohit Sharma. However, the batter has not been able to make a comeback in the Test and T20I format. Dhawan recently led India in the ODI series against West Indies and won the series 3-0.

The left-hander has said to Sports Tak that he is not affected by his exclusion from the T20I squad. He admitted that he lacked something and is not bothered by it. The Delhi-based veteran revealed that he is in a good space and looks to do well for India when the opportunity comes.

“To be honest. I don't feel any disappointment as such. I feel that there is a time for everything and maybe it's not my time. Maybe I lack something that I haven't been able to do too well. So worries, I gave my best and that's what matters. Till the time I am happy and content, that is all I care about. It's not like if my name doesn't come, I will be affected or anything like that. I am in a very good space; I am doing my best," Dhawan told Sports Tak.

The southpaw added that he plays well in the Indian T20 league and tries to give his best. He added that he’ll leave the rest to selectors and not worry much about it. Dhawan said that he will accept whatever the future has in place for him.

“If the opportunity provides then why not? When I play the Indian T20 League, I try my best to perform. And if I do well there, I might get chances. Rest is up to the selectors… what their thought process is, what is their vision. Like I said, if it comes, great, but even if it doesn't, that's also fine. I am keeping myself fit and strong and whenever I get the opportunity, I am ready for it," Dhawan concluded.

Shikhar Dhawan will once again be leading the Indian side against Zimbabwe. The Indian team will tour Zimbabwe for a three-match ODI series to begin on August 18. The matches will be played on August 18, 20 and 22 at the Harare Sports Club.
