It is not that easy for cricketers to balance their personal and professional life as it requires quite a lot of mental resilience. Shikhar Dhawan experienced some tough times in his life of late after his divorce from his estranged wife Aesha Mukherjee, with whom he had his troubles amid an unsuccessful marriage.

Amidst the infamous troubles in the star cricketer’s personal life, his career took a trajectory for the worse. The veteran was shown the exit door by the national selectors, a long time ago, with his last international appearance for India coming against Sri Lanka in 2021.

The experienced cricketer opened up about the tricks and trade that he picked up from Sachin Tendulkar. “Learned dedication, the love he has for the game, and knowledge from Sachin Paaji. He used to decipher pretty easily the weight of the willow, which shows his depth of knowledge about the game. Sachin Paaji used to know how to make a bat work.. so he was involved that much. He of course taught how to build your innings and hit a century eventually,” Dhawan added.
