Mumbai: Delhi Capitals opener Shikhar Dhawan became the first player to score back-to-back centuries in the IPL, the DC batsman said he wasn’t aware of the record he created.
Shikhar Dhawan’s unbeaten innings of 106 guided the Delhi Capitals to 164/5 in the twenty overs scheduled against KXIP. Left-handed Dhawan also became the first cricketer to score back-to-back centuries in the IPL.
“I didn’t know (when he was asked if he knew that he was the first person to score back-to-back tons in the IPL. Today, it’s been that way that no one can live with me). I took the responsibility of holding one end up and was also hitting the boundaries when I got the chance,” said Dhawan.
Kings XI Punjab chased down the target comfortably with the help of Nicholas Pooran and Glenn Maxwell who played knocks of 53 and 32 respectively.
Punjab chased down a total of 165 with six balls to spare.
With this win, KXIP has moved up to fifth place in the points table with 8 points from 10 matches while Delhi Capital is still on top with 14 points from 10 matches.
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will next take on SunRisers Hyderabad on October 24 at the Dubai International Stadium.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals will face Kolkata Knight Riders on the same day.
