New Delhi court steps into Shikhar Dhawan and his ex- wife's squabble


Shikhar Dhawan has been in the eye of the storm in recent times. The 37 year old left handed batter has been dropped from the ODI team for his poor performances in recent times. With the emergence of Shubman Gill, the chance for Shikhar Dhawan to make it back to the team is all but over. This has also thrown a spanner in the hopes of making it to the World Cup team for Shikhar Dhawan. 


If his cricketing problems weren't enough, the 37 year old from Delhi is also facing legal issues off the field. Shikhar Dhawan and his now ex wife Ayesha Mukherjee decided to go their separate ways last year. 


Delhi court steps in between the estranged couple - 


If one thought the separation between Shikhar Dhawan and his ex wife Ayesha Mukherjee was amicable, then the thinking is entirely wrong. Delhi court has advised Ayesha Mukherjee to stay away from posting anything which could harm the image of Shikhar Dhawan on social media. 


In an order which reads "Reputation of a person is dear to everyone and is considered as property of highest degree because materialistic property can be regained after loss but reputation cannot be regained once damaged. Therefore, it has got to be protected. However, it is equally true that if anyone has lawful grievance against someone, he or she cannot be restrained from venting out his or her grievance to concerned authority,” 


Court orders Ayesha Mukherjee to approach concerned authorities


Delhi court has come out and given Ayesha Mukherjee a chance to approach concerned authorities if she has any issues. The court has given her every right to air her grievances but has asked her to refrain from tarnishing the image of Shikhar Dhawan. 


The court order also read “Therefore, in these circumstances, she is hereby restrained till further order from circulating any of her grievance against Dhawan or her version of the dispute involved herein or the alleged defamatory and false material against the him, to social media, to print media or to any other' forum or to friends, relatives or colleagues of the parties,"


Dhawan looking for a lifeline back into the team - 


Shikhar Dhawan last played for India during the series against Bangladesh. The left handed batter endured a tough time with the bat as he couldn't register a big score. BCCI has indicated it's stance to move on from the opener. A good season of IPL though could come in handy and perhaps open a door to return for Shikhar Dhawan and realize his dream of playing one more World Cup for India
