My love and best wishes will always stay with my kids. Love you all),” he captioned the video.Zoravar spotted his father sandwiched between Manish Pandey and Kuldeep Yadav and can be heard asking, “Is that Papa?” in the video, to which his mother, Ayesha Dhawan, responded, “Yup!”Dhawan had earlier been excused from India’s ODI series in Sri Lanka to attend to his ailing mother after the third ODI.  advertisementIndia and New Zealand will meet in Kanpur to play the three-match ODI series on 29th October.last_img read more
