The Indian team is on its way to Bengaluru for the last T20 international against South Africa after a resounding 7-wicket win over the Proteas in the 2nd match of the series in Mohali. The victory was a result of a great team effort which saw the Indian field, bowl and bat well to outclass the opposition.

Dhawan posted a video with the caption, “Meet the loving and caring fathers from our team @rohitsharma45 & @royalnavghan” which featured his opening partner Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja.  

In the video Rohit can be seen holding a set of toys. When asked by Dhawan, he says that he bought these toys for his daughter Samaira and would give it to her when he meets his family in Bengaluru. The duo then ask Ravindra Jadeja, seated behind them about what he bought for his kid and he too replied toys, after which the trio shared a laugh.

Rohit and Dhawan have been one of India’s best ever opening pair in limited overs cricket and along with captain Virat Kohli at number 3, form the most formidable top order in international cricket today.
