India opener Shikhar Dhawan, who seems to enjoy his best time in South Africa with his current form, isn't much happy on the tour and missing his family very much, one of his Social Media posts revealed on Tuesday.
"Only when you spend so much time away from family, you realize how much you actually miss them! I miss spending time with my kids, playing with them, cooking and being there for them," Dhawan said in a tweet.
Mentioning his wife Ayesha Mukherjee, with whom he tied the knot in 2012, the Delhi batsman added: "Also, miss the Mrs like crazy! Want to spend quality time with her once I go back. Love you all to the moon and back!"

Dhawan scored 323 runs in the recently-concluded six-match series, which India won 5-1 to clinch their first-ever bilateral series in South Africa.
In the last T20I, which Virat Kohli-led side won by 28 runs, the 32-year-old Southpaw didn't fail to impress with the willow as he scored impressive 72 runs off 39 balls.
Dhawan gave India a much-needed swift start and the visitors posted 203/5 in their allotted 20 overs.
His heroics led him close to the man-of-the-match title in Johannesburg but then India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar snatched it with a remarkable five-wicket haul. The Meerut quick became the first India pacer to claim a five-wicket haul in T20Is and across all formats of cricket. (Read full story).
