DUBAI – Delhi Capital opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan became the first player to register consecutive centuries in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Dhawan achieved the feat as he brought up his century against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). In the match against KXIP, Dhawan smashed 12 fours and 3 sixes to bring up his century off just 57 balls.
Along the course of this innings, Dhawan also completed 5000 runs in the IPL. As a result, Dhawan is now at the fourth position in IPL’s all-time leading run-scorer list.
Co-incidentally, Dhawan also completed 10 years in international cricket on Tuesday. Earlier, Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi won the toss and opted to bat first against KXIP.
