"I think Cummins showed real temperament in his captaincy. He changed his bowlers knowing he could put pressure on each India batter even though they were all in such good form. His tactics made all the difference and his planning and execution was perfect."
Indian star opener batsman Shikhar Dhawan shared a video on Twitter where the southpaw is seen batting in the nets — first time since his injury in the recently concluded World Cup — to take on the Bottle Cap Challenge given to him by former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh.
“Yuvi Paaji, here is my #BottleCapChallenge! This is the first time I am picking my bat up after my injury..feels good to be back!@YUVSTRONG12,” wrote Dhawan on Twitter.

Yuvraj Singh on 8 July posted a video on Instagram where the all-rounder had opened the bottle cap playing a straight lofted hit and challenged Shikhar Dhawan and some other cricketers to do so.
“Here’s my version of the #bottlecapchallenge . The challenge goes out to @brianlaraofficial @shikhardofficial @chrisgayle333 and @sachintendulkar who has to take this challenge as a left hander,” wrote Yuvi on Instagram.
33-year-old swashbuckling left-hander Dhawan suffered a thumb injury during the 2019 World Cup league round after Pat Cummins hit him awkwardly in the early phase of his match-winning innings of 117 off 109 balls on 9 June. Following the injury, the southpaw had been ruled out of the tournament and has been recovering since then.
