During India vs Australia, 3rd ODI played at Bengaluru on January 19, 2020, Shikhar Dhawan injured his left shoulder while making a dive at the cover region to save an Aaron Finch shot. The injury was so worst that Dhawan even did not come out to bat during India chase, as KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma opened up the inning. The shoulder injury also forced Shikhar Dhawan to be ruled out of India vs New Zealand T20I and ODI series which concluded recently. His absence, perhaps cost India a series loss in ODIs against Kiwis, considering that Shikhar Dhawan is good in 50 overs game. Shikhar Dhawan’s Latest Prank With Wife Ayesha and Son Zoravar Will Make You Burst Into Laughter (Watch Video)

In the below video, Shikhar Dhawan can be seen doing lower body exercises to maintain his fitness and keep the body fat percentage to a low level. Injuries shouldn't stop your workout, as it will only reduce the endurance and V02 max level, which is the worst case for any sportsman. The Indian Cricket team left-handed batsman can be seen doing goblet squat, goblet walking lunges and calf raises. These exercises majorly work on quadriceps muscles and calf muscles of the lower body. Glute muscles also get engaged while doing walking lunges.
