Dhawan was dismissed for just 6 runs after captain MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to bat at the Gabba on Friday (January 15). In the 1st ODI on January 12 (Tuesday), Dhawan had gone back to the pavilion after scoring only 9.
As it is the norm these days, players names start to trend on the micro-blogging site Twitter for right and also wrong reasons. Today it was Shikhar Dhawan who was trending on Twitter soon as he became Joel Paris' maiden ODI wicket. It was all fun as the Dhawan got trolled.
Jokes, which are usually in the name of Rohit Sharma when he fails, turned towards Dhawan today. On a good batting pitch, the 30-year-old failed to capitalise.
Here are some of the jokes on Dhawan on Twitter
