Shikhar Dhawan did not get a chance even after a good performance
Playing for PBKS, Shikhar Dhawan performed brilliantly this year as well and scored 460 runs in 14 matches at an average of 38.33. He was at number four on the list of batsmen who scored the most runs. But even after this, he could not get a place on the team.

Rahul Dravid wanted to give a chance to the youth
The reason for keeping Shikhar Dhawan out of the team recently a BCCI member said, “Coach Rahul Dravid believes T20 is a game of youth. He wants to give opportunities to emerging players more than experienced players. He had already told this thing. That’s why he could not get a place in the team this time”.
