Veteran India opener Shikhar Dhawan, who is undergoing a 14-day quarantine in Mumbai ahead of the Sri Lanka tour, was seen concentrating during his yoga session.
The southpaw has been an advocate of the importance of yoga in human lives. On Tuesday, he was seen undergoing some meditation in a clip shared by him on Instagram.
He captioned the video:
“Yoga sessions keep me calm, bring me clarity, and have become an important part of my lifestyle.”
Shikhar Dhawan was also heard reciting some verse while meditating inside a hotel in Mumbai. Yesterday, on the occasion of World Yoga Day, Dhawan took an important initiative to make yoga a big part of every athlete’s lives.

With Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma busy with the WTC final and the following five-match Test series against England, the BCCI has appointed Dhawan as the skipper of a relatively young side that will fly to Sri Lanka. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be his deputy.
Reacting to the news, Shikhar Dhawan shared a picture of himself in India’s jersey and expressed his delight.
“Humbled by the opportunity to lead my country. Thank you for all your wishes.”
