IPL 2021, PBKS VS DC Highlights, Prithvi-Shikhar Led delhi Capitals to The top of the table as DC beat PBKS by 7 wickets

Stand-in-captain Mayank Agarwal’s unbeaten 99 gave Punjab Kings some hope at the halfway stage. However, his seventh half-century for the franchise went in vain after yet another excellent knock from Shikhar Dhawan — a sparkling 47-ball 69 — that helped Delhi ace the 167-run chase with 14 deliveries to spare and climb to the top of the points table.

Dhawan anchors Delhi’s chase
After a thunderous match-winning essay — a 49-ball 92 — against Punjab Kings a fortnight ago, Dhawan had provided a peek into his mindset and the changes he has brought about in his game. “It was a conscious effort from my side to improve my strike rate. Started taking more risks. Not afraid of changes, always open towards it. Not scared of getting out as well. Have worked on a few shots. My slog shot has improved a lot. It was there earlier as well, but now I play it more freely. I’m more relaxed now,” the left-hander had said.

Two weeks later, against the same opponents, Dhawan anchored another perfectly-timed run-chase for Delhi Capitals with a sumptuous knock. Prithvi Shaw’s pyrotechnics may have propelled them to 63/0 in the Powerplay. But with 56 needed off seven overs, it was Dhawan’s aggressive approach that gave the scoreboard the required impetus. The opener targeted leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi in particular, pummelling him for two sixes and a boundary over the mid-wicket fence.
