Shikhar Dhawan

After registering his first IPL hundred in their last match against Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals’ destructive opener Shikhar Dhawan played another blockbuster performance to set the Dubai International Stadium to fire!

Before the match kickstarted, the toss was won by Delhi Capitals, who chose to bat first. Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan came out to start the innings for their team, however, the team soon suffered a big blow after Shaw once again failed to give the best of his abilities. Prithvi failed to get going and was dismissed after scoring 7 runs off 11 balls.

However, Shikhar Dhawan held the game and brought the much-needed momentum to the game. He remained unbeaten till the last ball of the innings and scored a powerful 106 runs off 61 balls as he smashed the bowlers of Kings XI Punjab to all the corners of the ground. He smashed 12 fours and 3 sixes. Besides Dhawan, no other Delhi Capitals batsmen were able to score big. Riding on the performance of Dhawan, DC posted a target of 164 runs ahead of KXIP.

With his knock, Shikhar Dhawan became the only batsman in the thirteen years of IPL history to have scored back to back centuries. During his race to the second century in the past three 3 days and 13 seasons, Dhawan also crossed 5,000 IPL runs.

Meanwhile, as soon as the innings came to an end, social media was already flooded with amazing posts and tweets appreciating the cricketer for his brilliant knock. From cricketers, cricket experts to fans, everyone is hailing the brilliant performance of Dhawan.
