IPL 2020: Dhawan’s century record a huge achievement, says Gambhir

IPL 2020: Dhawan’s century record a huge achievement, says Gambhir

Mumbai, Oct 27 (UNI) Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir has praised Delhi Capitals opener Shikhar Dhawan, saying that his record of hitting back-to-back centuries in the ongoing IPL 2020 is a huge achievement.
Dhawan has been in great form with the bat for Delhi Capitals in this season. Last week, he scored 101 not out against Chennai Super Kings and followed it up with an unbeaten knock of 106 against Kings XI Punjab to become the first batsman in IPL history to score two centuries in a row.
The Indian cricketer is also at the second spot in the list of leading run-scorers, having scored 471 runs in 11 matches so far in the tournament.
"First thing, the record itself is a huge achievement! No other Indian has done it. In fact, no other player has done it in the IPL. Two back to back hundreds, that too in a T20 format," said Gambhir on Star Sports' show Cricket Live.
"The more important thing about these two centuries, is the timing, the time at which they have come, when the Delhi Capitals need to peak. If your most experienced batsman peaks at this moment and is in his best form, then it's an advantage for DC," he added.
Gambhir also said that there's no doubt Delhi Capitals, who have 14 points from 11 matches, are reaching the playoffs.
Delhi Capitals will face SunRisers Hyderabad in the 47th match of the IPL 2020 on Tuesday evening.
