Watch - Shikhar Dhawan comes up with a hilarious response after seeing a fan's poster 'Can I have your shirt' during the final ODI against Zimbabwe
The 3rd and final match of the three-match series between Zimbabwe and India was held at the Harare Sports Club in Harare on 22nd August, Monday. Coming to the game, once again it was KL Rahul who won the toss and this time the Indian skipper opted to bat.
Batting first, India posted a well challenging total of 289 runs on the board. Shubman Gill smashed his maiden hundred in One-day Internationals and ended up his inning, scoring 130 runs off 97 balls which consisted of 15 fours and a six.
Chasing the target, India got a good start from Deepak Chahar and others have also done well with the ball in the middle overs of the game. However, Sikandar Raza seemed to be in different touch as he took on the Indian bowlers and scored 115 runs for his side. Despite his prolific performance with the bat, Zimbabwe lost the match as India whitewashed the hosts by 3-0.
Feels good when you are with the same bunch: Shubman Gill
After the clean sweep against Zimbabwe, Shubman Gill was named Player of the Match and Player of the Series as well for his fabulous show with the bat against the hosts. He shared a few words about the game and the kind he performed in the post-match presentation.
"I was just trying to minimise my dot ball percentage. I tried to hit the gaps as much as possible. When I went in, there were a couple of bowlers bowling good. It was crucial to get through that. Once we were settled, we knew we could attack," Shubman Gill was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"The bat was pretty good. That's why I changed it after my 50, I wanted to save it. Definitely special (on hitting his maiden international ton). (Playing in this team) It feels great, great bunch of players.
Feels good when you are with the same bunch. My father has been my primary coach. I got a schooling after I got out in the second ODI, so I dedicate this to him," he added.
However, during the game, fans noticed that Shikhar Dhawan was wearing a jersey with the number 54 as the fans took no time to figure out that the veteran left-handed cricketer wore Shardul Thakur's jersey while coming out to bat. Moreover, one of the fans asked Shikhar Dhawan to have his shirt and the veteran cricketer come up with a hilarious reply.
