Team India cricketer Shikhar Dhawan is preparing for the upcoming Zimbabwe tour. India will be playing three-ODI matches against the hosts at the Harare Sports Club, starting on Thursday, August 18. Shikhar Dhawan attended the pre-match press conference on Tuesday, answering a series of questions. During the press conference, he failed to understand a journalist’s accent and requested to repeat the question.

Shikhar Dhawan has been named as KL Rahul’s deputy for the Zimbabwe tour. Interestingly, the left-handed batter was named the captain of the team initially. However, he was demoted after KL Rahul returned back to the squad. Speaking at the press conference, Shikhar Dhawan was asked about playing against a struggling team like Zimbabwe.

“Shikhar, how difficult is it to play a team like Zimbabwe at this moment… who have been struggling for a long period. They haven’t even played much against the Indian team. Do you expect to beat a team like Zimbabwe,” the journalists asked.

The opening batter could not understand the question due to the journalist’s accent and requested to repeat it. He said, “Ah, I didn’t get it. Can you repeat? I couldn’t understand your accent, sir”.

We would not take anything for granted: Shikhar Dhawan on playing against Zimbabwe

“It is good that they (Zimbabwe) won against Bangladesh. I am sure they are playing good cricket. This is good for us too. It will keep us on our toes and we would not take anything for granted. We are here to perform. Irrespective of the team and time, we should focus on getting the process right so that we get the right results,” he said.
