Former Cricketer Suresh Raina has lauded Shikhar Dhawan’s performance in the IPL 2020. Raina also told how Dhawan says that he is going to score runs before a game, and then actually performs well.

Shikhar Dhawan had a magnificent IPL 2020. He was the second-highest run-scorer of the tournament, behind KL Rahul.

The left-hander scored 618 runs at an average of 44 with a strike rate of 144 and was instrumental in Delhi Capitals reaching their maiden IPL final.

Dhawan became the first player in the history of the IPL to record back-to-back hundreds. Against Chennai Super Kings he notched his maiden IPL ton scoring 101* in a close chase.

Dhawan also became only the second Indian batsman to record multiple hundreds in a single season- after Virat Kohli in 2016.

The Kapil Sharma Show, Suresh Raina was invited as a guest along with his wife, Priyanka Raina. While talking to the host, Kapil Sharma, Raina said that Dhawan is a kind of a batsman who will say ‘see what I will do’ before going in to bat, and then he vindicates his words often by scoring runs.

Suresh Raina said, “Shikhar says it, and he does it. See what your pal does. He is ready. He is performing so well Scoring back-to-back hundreds is not easy. Earlier, he’s gotten out on 90, 97, 99, but this year scoring two centuries, I mean… he’s a good man.”

Suresh Raina announced his retirement on 15th August, hours after MS Dhoni announced his retirement. Raina and Harbhajan Singh pulled out of the IPL which was staged in the UAE due to personal reasons.
