Here are a few comments

"Absltly awsm.. Gabbar with flute.. deadly combination... aaj se paaji ko all rounder mn gina jayega," replied bipab_revolution.

"wah pajii tussi great ho cricket me bhi music me bhi," wrote anandsh10clicks.

 

Some even went to the extent of calling him Krishna.

"Krishna," wrote mr.prashanth_25.    

However, not everyone believed in Shikhar Dhawan's flute-playing skills.

"Sir r u playing the flute??," asked sad_dam____.

"Is that really you?," wrote boseonthebass.

bighdey_nawab simply refused to believe that it was Shikhar Dhawan playing the flute: "You are not playing it , I am damn sure."

"Wow ??so amazing, sach me ya aese hi fak rahe ho," wrote shrivastava8851.

Shikhar Dhawan did not shine bright in the tour of the West Indies as he had a very poor outing in the T20Is and his ODI performance was also lower than average.
