Flamboyant Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan suffered groin injury while celebrating the victory in his trademark ‘thigh slapping’ style.
After scoring a century and beating arch rivals Pakistan, Dhawan was ecstatic and unstoppable with his celebration.
But it seems his thighs were not ready for what was in store for them.
While speaking to the media, team spokesperson said, “Unki janghon me soojan aa gayi hai. Doctors are waiting for the x-ray report. We are hoping that the injury is not as bad as it looks.”
The the cricketer spent the entire day lying on the chair with an ice pack wrapped around his groin and may miss the net practice.
Sources say that the in-form batsman could be ruled out of the next match if the swelling doesn’t get better.
Faking News spoke to team mate Yuzvendra Chahal on what transpired in the dressing room post victory and he said that the team got carried away with celebrations in the dressing room. “Shikhar opened his thighs for other players to slap too. We all were just too happy to have beaten Pak twice. Didn’t realize this would happen,” he said.
Coach Ravi Shastri reprimanded the players and said that the team was behaving like high school kids.
In a strongly worded message he warned the players from taking part in any celebrations and focus on the upcoming matches till the Asia cup is over.
