Dhawan’s 92 off 49 balls was a statement that screamed he is at the pick of his T20 cricket at 35 years of age. Dhawan moved around the crease and worked each bowler through the one side with much disdain. None of them were ugly hoicks. If it all, his stock play matched his famed off-side play. Here is a man in absolute control of his IPL cricket.
Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League at MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai on Tuesday.
“The Mumbai Indians have played three games in Chennai, so they know the conditions there. For us, the challenge will be to switch on mentally according to the wicket and prepare our plan. Then we just have to go out there and implement the plan and play with a positive mindset and look to win the game,” said Dhawan.
While speaking about the Delhi franchise’s win over Punjab Kings, Dhawan said that a good start by the opening batsmen was crucial for the side. “We needed a good start according to the situation today. Prithvi (Shaw) played really well in the first two three overs, and I was timing the ball well. I am glad that we strung a partnership of 50 runs. We scored 50-odd runs in five overs, so we were ahead of the game in the first six overs,” said the DC opener.
