During the India vs Zimbabwe 3rd ODI, The camera panned towards the fan, who kept waving his placard in front of the camera, something which Shikhar Dhawan took notice of.

When Shikhar Dhawan walked out to open the innings for India in the third ODI against Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club on Monday, there was something odd about his jersey. The back of Dhawan's shirt where the name of the player is mentioned was taped up by one of the support staff members. Dhawan had worn Shardul Thakur's jersey which was covered as soon as he came out to bat.

Why Dhawan didn't put on his own jersey is not known but what we do know is that a fan in attendance of the match really wanted it. He put up a placard which read: 'Shikhar, Can I have yo'ur' shirt?' The incident took place in the 27th over of the Indian innings, when Dhawan had gotten out and was relaxing with KL Rahul, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Avesh Khan in one of the stands, watching Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill take the team forward.
