Shikhar Dhawan and Co. shake leg on Punjabi song to celebrate ODI series win

Shikhar Dhawan, the captain of India, enjoyed a fun time with his teammates following Tuesday’s 2-1 ODI series victory over South Africa. In the third and final ODI, played in Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium, the Indian team thrashed the Proteas by 7 wickets to win the series.

Shikhar Dhawan, India’s stand-in captain for the campaign, could not contain his joy and was seen breaking into his signature thigh celebration after getting the trophy. After the conclusion of the series, Dhawan shared a video of him and his teammates celebrating the win with a dance step.

In India’s last ODI win against Zimbabwe under Dhawan’s captaincy, he danced to the song ‘Kala Chashma’ along with his teammates, and the video garnered a lot of attention. So much so that other teams, like Hong Kong and Barbados Royals Women, also started celebrating in a similar manner after winning matches.

Now with another series win under their name, the Dhawan & Co. grooved to the famous Bollywood song Bolo Tara Rara, and the skipper was seen guiding the group with the steps as well. Dhawan shared a video of him and the team and captioned it: “Jeet ke bolo Tara ra ra.”

Head Coach shares BTS video to appreciate Dhawan

VVS Laxman, who had been the interim head coach for the ODI leg of South Africa’s tour of India, shared a behind-the-scenes video that shows Dhawan teaching the players the steps before making the final video. He captioned it:

“@SDhawan25 leading the team not just on the field, but off the field as well. Brilliant camaraderie among the boys, great to watch. Bolo Tara Ra ra.”

Speaking of the series, India lost the first game by a short margin of nine runs as the visitors took an early lead. The second game was a crucial one for India, and Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan rose to the occasion with the bat, as the former notched up 93(84) and the latter amassed an unbeaten 113*(111) to take India to a win. Kuldeep Yadav’s heroics with the ball helped India restrict South Africa to just 99 runs in the third game, making it easier for the Indian batters to chase.
