"Kabaddi Kabaddi Kabaddi," Dhawan captioned the post.
With the series already in the bag, New Zealand's Daryl Mitchell has been pulled out of Kiwi's fifth T20I match against Pakistan to manage his workload.
New Zealand head coach Gary Stead confirmed that the 32-year-old was given a break since "important Test matches" are on the way for the Kiwis.
He added that since the hosts have already won the T20I series against Pakistan it was the best time to give him a break.
"We've made a call to give Daryl Mitchell a break from this game. We've obviously got some important Test matches leading up. Daryl's a three-format player, so it's really important that we do manage his workload over this period. He's highly likely to play a big part in the rest of our [home] season. So we just thought this is an opportune time [to give him a break], given the series is won," Stead was quoted by ESPNcricinfo as saying.
Mitchell currently is the third-highest run scorer in the series, with 158 runs after taking part in four games with a strike rate of 183.72. He smashed 13 fours and 7 sixes.
The final T20I game against Pakistan will be played on Sunday at Hagley Oval in Christchurch.
