IPL 2021 DC Vs SRH: Shikhar Dhawan did this feat for the sixth consecutive year in the IPL, leaving behind Kohli-Rohit

Delhi Capitals have again topped the points table after defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 8 wickets in the second leg of the Indian Premier League on Wednesday. Shikhar Dhawan made a significant contribution in Delhi's victory. Shikhar scored 42 runs in 37 balls. With this, Dhawan completed his 400 runs in IPL 14. Dhawan has 422 runs in 9 matches in the current IPL and has won the Orange Cap.


This is the sixth time in IPL that Shikhar Dhawan has scored 400 or more runs in a season. Before them, only David Warner and Suresh Raina have done this feat. Both of them have scored 400 or more runs in seven consecutive seasons of IPL. Talking about Dhawan, he scored 501 runs in IPL 2016, 479 runs in 2017, 497 runs in 2018, 521 runs in 2018 and 618 runs in 2020. This is the eighth time Dhawan has scored 400 or more runs in an IPL season. Suresh Raina holds the record of scoring more than 400 runs for the most number of times. He has done this 9 times in the IPL season. At the same time, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have done this feat seven times each.

Talking about the match played yesterday, Hyderabad, batting first, had set a target of 135 runs in front of Delhi. The target was easily achieved by Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals for the loss of 2 wickets in 17.5 overs. For Delhi, Iyer played an unbeaten innings of 47 runs. With this win, Delhi Capitals have again reached the top of the points table. On the other hand, talking about Sunrisers Hyderabad, they are almost on the verge of being out of the tournament after losing 7 out of 8 matches. His chances of making it to the playoffs are slim.
