In his post, Dhawan shared an image of a billboard. The message on the billboard read, “Vaisha Vai Lee, I am over you. Not yours, Khanna.” Through this billboard, Khanna, presumably an anonymous individual, attempted to convey to Vaisha that he had moved on. Dhawan used this metaphor to highlight the deep-seated pain of the loss, implying that while some things can be forgotten, the pain of that particular day remains.

Australia’s Travis Head played a match-winning knock, scoring 137 runs off 120 balls, supported by Marnus Labuschagne’s unbeaten 58 runs off 110 balls.
