Sports Desk: Shikhar Dhawan is in great form in the IPL. In the match against Punjab Kings, he kept his form and contributed significantly to the team's victory. Chasing 167, Dhawan played a brilliant 69-run half-century against Punjab. He hit 6 fours and 2 sixes during this innings. After the match, Dhawan said that I am very happy with the way we successfully chased the target.
Dhawan said that I and Prithvi Shaw are qualified to give a good start. Smith also played well and we know that the match has to be taken to the end. The innings went well and I enjoyed it very much. When we came to know that we could take the match closer, we wanted to end this match in the 19th over. But in the end, Hetmyer's innings gave us victory in the 18th over. He is a great hit.
Dhawan said that both the run and the strike rate are very important in T20. I respect such a wicket. A lot depends on the pitch as well as your attitude towards the match. I have been playing with Prithvi for the last three years and that makes the job easy for me.
