Former Indian seamer insisted that this was a schoolboy error and Dhawan should have a conversation with him.

Team India will reportedly be without the services of Shikhar Dhawan for the 2nd T20I against the hosts. As per Sports Tak, Dhawan was in close contact with COVID-19 positive Krunal Pandya. His close contacts have tested negative but they will not be allowed to play in the remaining fixtures.

Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Suryakumar Yadav, Prithvi Shaw, Krishnappa Gowtham and Ishan Kishan are other players who came in Krunal’s contact.

Dhawan, the stand-in skipper, has led the team successfully so far in the ongoing tour. If Dhawan misses the second match, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Nitish Rana and Devdutt Padikkal are the frontrunners to open the innings. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the side in Dhawan’s absence.

Meanwhile, Krunal has been shifted to another hotel.
