During his early days, Shikhar Dhawan was busy plying his trade for Delhi in the Ranji Trophy. The left-hander was busy honing his skills as a batsman and soon became a vital cog for his side in domestic cricket. While his batting prowess was gaining recognition, Dhawan's uncanny nature, clubbed with wit and humour, also entertained everyone around him.
As his fellow players often recall, Dhawan was infamous for reciting the dialogues of Bollywood blockbuster 'Sholay' during the domestic matches which further saw him earning the nickname 'Gabbar'. For a man whose typical 'Kabaddi' celebrations are cheered by fans, Dhawan gave his followers another gem to cheer for on the social media.February 19, 2019
Staying true to his nickname, the Indian opener shared a video of himself where he was seen riding a horse around. "Jatt Shaunkiyaa tey Shaunk poore karda. #horsebackriding #horseriding #learninghorseriding #tuesdaythoughts #TuesdayMotivation," he captioned the video.
While Indian spinner Ravindra Jadeja reigns supreme when it comes to his love for horses, Dhawan's latest horse-riding video has also struck a chord with the fans.

On the cricket front, Dhawan will need to pull up his socks when India take on Australia in two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and five One-Day Internationals (ODIs), slated to begin from 24th February.
