Shikhar Dhawan made a vivid comeback after a gradual begin within the preliminary section of IPL 2020, as he grew to become the primary cricketer to slam back-to-back centuries within the historical past of the match.
He remained unbeaten in each of his centuries in opposition to RR and KXIP.
Dhawan confronted vital criticism for poor outings with the bat and was slammed by followers and consultants for his gradual 69-run innings in opposition to Mumbai Indians, the place he confronted 52 deliveries.
Dhawan has now revealed how Ricky Ponting urged him to play sooner.
“Ricky bhai said that I was batting well and I knew I wanted to play a little fast. I had a discussion on that also with him. I was happy with the 20s and 30s because they were impactful,” stated Dhawan.
“I believed I used to be taking part in the function of the opener. The second I obtained fifties, I gained in confidence after which by God’s grace I scored the centuries.”
Dhawan is currently the second-highest run-scorer in the IPL, with 465 runs in 11 matches.
