After registering a convincing win over New Zealand in the first ODI in Napier, India cricketers Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan were pictured spending time with their families on Thursday.
Kohli uploaded a picture on social media with wife Anushka Sharma, who has also accompanied the Indian skipper to New Zealand. Kohli uploaded a story on popular social media platform Instagram and his post read: ‘Moments with her’.
Meanwhile, opener Shikhar Dhawan too shared an image and his post read: Happiness is father and daughter time…
Dhawan played an important role in India’s convincing win in the first ODI and the same will be expected of him when the caravan moves to Mount Maunganui, the venue for the second and third matches of the series.
After an average outing in the three-match ODI series in Australia, Dhawan roared back to life in Napier, where he scored his first half-century in 10 innings.
As for skipper Kohli, he will look to end his Kiwi tour on a high as he has been rested for the final two ODIs and the subsequent T20I series.
The second ODI of the series will be played on Saturday.
