England is now leading the series with 3-1 against India. The fifth test starts today where India will aim for a respectable series. Before today's test, Dhawan posted on Instagram in his defense.
"People who have been writing negative stuff. We are also hurt the day you guys are. It is important to learn from our mistakes and move forward. We give our best for the nation everytime we walk on the ground and the most important thing is as a team we should be in a good mindset before the next game," Dhawan posted on his Instagram page.
Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, and Murali Vijay have been highly criticized for their poor form in the current five test series between India and England.
Dhawan has scored 158 runs from three matches so far while Rahul has managed 113 from four matches. Vijay, who was dropped from the squad for the last two Tests, managed 26 runs from two matches.
"We cannot change the past. So we do our hard work on the ground as always and keep our process strong. After practice, it is important to laugh and be happy so we create positivity in the team. That's what champions do. Easy to be happy when winning. Warriors stay positive when things are down too. Thanks to the fans who are still supporting us," Dhawan wrote.
Earlier in during the tests too, Dhawan had posted and promised to come back strong.
Dhawan's post read, ''I know you're all very sad & disappointed with our narrow loss yesterday. I've looked into my own performance, the mistakes I made and I‘ll come back stronger and wiser in the next game. Thank u for all the love & support.''
Dhawan has, however, failed to keep his promise and is being criticised for the same.
