Shikhar Dhawan has been left out of the ODI squad for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka, the BCCI stated on Tuesday while announcing the two white-ball squads. Dhawan has been enduring a rough patch in the ODI format this year. His average of 34.40 and strike rate of 74.21 in 2022 is the worst he has registered ever since his comeback in 2013. The recent performances of youngsters Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan also proved to be a pivotal factor in Dhawan’s snub.
