Delhi Capital posted a convincing win over David Warner and his men in Qualifier 2 to fix a date with Mumbai Indians in the final of IPL 2020. Shikhar Dhawan enhanced Delhi’s batting performance with a stormy innings of 78 runs. With his latest innings in the bag, he crossed the 600-run mark in IPL 2020 and sat next to the Orange Cap holder KL Rahul. This was his fourth half-century in the tournament.
After scoring two centuries under his belt in IPL 2020, he is taking the field with admirable confidence. In the latest match as well, he showed great intent to take the team’s score to 200 before being dismissed by SRH fast bowler Sandeep Sharma. Southerners could avoid leaving the field by opting for DRS, but they left quietly. The replay stated that the umpire made the wrong decision.
Delhi could have easily crossed the 200-run mark and could have stayed a little longer and was close to her dream of achieving the Orange Cap. In the same line of incident, former hitter Yuvraj Singh Asked Dhawan why he didn’t go for DRS option. Dhawan has come up with an answer, and suggests that the prolific batsman had some confusion.
The bowlers made a great comeback in the final 2 overs! Not even a single boundary hit for the pressure game of Natarajan and @Sandeep25a! @ SDhawan25 as the man but the name is Jat Ji’s zani face. How DRS Brew? As usual, #DCvSRH must have forgotten the face with tears of joy, ”tweeted Yuvraj
Dhawan replied in Punjabi, “Hahahaha paaji manu lag gayi tam mhu chhuk chala pada jadh seema tehi paahunch tad paat lagya gaaya.”
Here is Shikhar Dhawan’s answer
Hahaha paaji menu laga plumb hai tah muh chuch pe pe jd seema tera tahnah tad pag laga aj

Batting first, the Capitals posted 189/3 in their 20-over quota. Chasing the score, SRH stumbled under pressure as DC star fast bowler Kagiso Rabada named a stunning four-wicket hall after himself. Marcus Stoinis made three sixes in addition to his fine contribution with the bat and came to open for Delhi. He was voted Player of the Match.
