New Delhi: Indian cricket team's senior opener Shikhar Dhawan said he has received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

The 35-year-old batsman was part of the Delhi Capitals squad in the Indian Premier League that was indefinitely suspended on Tuesday due to multiple Covid-19 cases in its bio-bubble.
