Having got off to a slow start in the 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), veteran opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has finally found himself in supreme form as the tournament is reaching the business end.
Dhawan gave a glimpse of the form that he is in when he became the first player in the tournament’s history to smash back-to-back tons, earlier this week, following his unbeaten knock against KXIP.
During Delhi Capitals’ last two games against CSK and KXIP, respectively, the 34-year-old Dhawan has notched up scores of 101* and 106*, respectively.
In fact, in his last four outings, Shikhar has aggregated more than 300 runs, which has put him in contention for the IPL 2020 Orange Cap, which is currently occupied by KXIP skipper, KL Rahul.
In the same light, Dhawan, during an interaction with ANI, said that he’s confident in himself and he doesn’t give much importance to the noises from the outside.
“I like to stay happy, instead of taking stress. Firstly what people say doesn’t reach my ears and I don’t wish to listen to that and secondly, I love playing cricket as it gives me joy,” Dhawan said.
“I know the hard work I have done and how fit I am and the preparations that I have done. I have full faith in me that whatever I touch, I will turn it into gold,”
Delhi Capitals will now take on KKR in their next game on Saturday.
