WATCH Shikhar Dhawan’s ‘Knock out by dad’ for not qualifying for IPL play-offs


Punjab Kings failed to qualify for the Indian Premier League 2022 playoffs but one of its players Shikhar Dhawan had a lighter way of bearing the loss. Dhawan, who is also known for his funny social media posts, shared another video on Instagram as he tried to make his fans laugh.

In the lighthearted video, Dhawan can be seen being playfully beaten by his father while his family members try to stop him.

“Knock out by my dad for not qualiying for knock outs,” Dhawan captioned the video.

Dhawan’s PBKS Harpreet Brar also commented on the post, saying: “Haha Uncle on fire pajii.”

PBKS finished sixth in the IPL points table with seven wins from 14 outings.

The Mayank Agarwal-led side had started the season on a high but their inability to stitch back-to-back wins saw them miss out on a playoffs birth.

Despite his excellent return with the bat, Dhawan was ignored by the BCCI for the India’s upcoming T20I series against South Africa. India will play five T20Is against the Proteas, starting June 9.
