Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan had been away from cricket for over a month because of the thumb injury he picked up in the World Cup game against Australia. He has now recovered and has posted a video of sharpening his reflexes before the West Indies tour.

The left-handed opening batsmen had to come back to India after getting injured during his innings of 117 against Australia. Since then, he has been out of cricketing action. However, he has recovered in time to play against West Indies.

The selection committee has picked Dhawan in the limited overs squads, with the T20I series starting from 3rd August. The southpaw recently posted a video of himself practicing in the nets. In his latest video, he is seen taking some reflex catches as he sometimes stands in the slips.

He shared the video on his Instagram handle and asked the fans to guess his reaction time. The caption read, “Working on my reflexes! Let’s see who can guess my accurate reaction time?
