Speaking for numbers, Gavaskar heaped praise on the Delhi batsman for carrying his form forward and not taking it easy at all, adding “he is looking like a million bucks”. The former Indian skipper said that Dhawan is not trying to do anything different as some of the shots that he has been playing in the league are classic textbook shots.
Speaking to Star Sports, Gavaskar said, “He has been in a tremendous right from the start of the season. He is carrying his form and he is not taking it easy at all. Sometimes, batsmen tend to take the good form for granted, get into bad habits. But he hasn’t got into any.”
He further opined, “Look at some of his shots. These are the shot which has always got runs. He hasn’t tried to do anything different. These are the shots that he plays in all forms of the games, in the longer formats as well. And they are paying for him and he is looking like a million bucks.
Inform openers of Delhi Capitals Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw assures an easy win for the team after giving a dream start in powerplays. Last night, Prithvi Shaw scored quickfire 39 runs off 22 balls and Shikhar Dhawan took innings deep and managed to score 69 runs off 47 balls not out.
Delhi Capitals are on top of the table with 12 points and they’ll be aiming first or second place in the playoffs to make sure they get an extra eliminator game. Rishabh Pant has led the team well. There has been great batting from openers and some exceptional bowling from Avesh Khan, Axar Patel and Kagiso Rabada. Delhi capitals will aim to win the tournament this year and looks like the strongest contender to win.
