Dhawan hits 1st IPL ton in 13 years

Shikhar Dhawan has been playing regularly since the first edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), 2008. He has played for 4 different franchises in his 13-year IPL career. However, the left-arm batsman scored a ton for the first time on Saturday. 

The Delhi Capitals opener played an unbeaten 101 off 58 balls against Chennai Super Kings yesterday. Which is his first century in the 13 years of IPL history.

Shikhar Dhawan considers this innings as special, which is the first time he has scored a century in T20. With the help of his century, Delhi chased Chennai's 179-4 in which Faf du Plessis made 58 and Ambati Rayudu an unbeaten 45.

After playing the winning innings, Dhawan said, "It is really something special. I have been playing for 13 years. The century is something special to me. I'm really happy."

"At the start of the season also I was hitting the ball well but I wasn't converting those 20s into 50s. Once you do that, you take that confidence into the next game."

Dhawan commented that this success comes as he did regular fitness work during coronavirus lockdown. “I think fitness is very important,” said the star batsman.
