Shikhar Dhawan always brings out his team’s spirited side in the country’s cricket. Dhawan opened for India in the first Test against South Africa in Cape Town. However, after twin failures in the match, he was dropped from the playing XI in the second test match in Centurion. However, the change in the top order did little to alter India’s chance as Virat Kohli & Co had to lick the 135-run devastating defeat at the hands of Protease.
Dhawan’s friendly gesture towards the injured Pak all-rounder Shoaib Malik has earned him great compliments from the neighbouring country of Pakistan.
The Pak cricketer got hit on his head’s back at a throw while running between the wickets during the fourth ODI against New Zealand at Hamilton on January 16. Though he continued to bat, he showed signs of a delayed concussion.
Like a true gentleman, he asked about the injured batsman’s well-being besides wishing him a speedy recovery.
Janab @realshoaibmalik, hope you're recovering well and will be fit soon to be back on the field! Take care🤗☺

His post on Twitter was appreciated by the fans by being thankful for this special kind gesture. They even got to the length of terming it as great sportsman spirit.
A large number of cricket lovers and fans from Pakistan, in particular, have come forward with praises upon him.
Care for others is one of the most remarkable feelings on the living planet. We work so arduously to find it. As powerful as it is a good gesture that is always enough that is apparently manifested from his tweet, “hope you are recovering well and will be fit soon to be back on the field! Take care.”
