Shikhar Dhawan’s bat speaks volumes in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League. Gabber has scored 380 runs in 8 matches so far and currently holds the Orange Cap. With Dhawan’s strong showing, the Delhi Capitals have topped the point table by beating the Punjab Kings. Former India batsman and commentator Akash Chopra believes that Dhawan is on the same form as it seems that the entire season of IPL 2021 is going to adorn his head.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Akash said, “Shikhar Dhawan has turned on Beast Mode. We see what they are doing this year, we don’t usually see them. After the initial firing of the earth they begin to bite aggressively. If Prithvi is playing, he will take a back seat and give him a chance to kill him. As soon as the Earth comes out, he changes his style of play. He allows Steve Smith to play with one run per ball and get the form. And he has been in the crease for a long time, trying his best to draw attention to the end, which is not always the case. ‘

The former cricketer added, ‘The Orange Cap is on his head and the way he plays, I don’t think anyone will snatch the cap from him. His innings and his understanding, the way he batting is amazing. This is the 2.0 avatar of Shikhar Dhawan, which debuted last season, which has continuity and strike rate. Dhawan scored an unbeaten 69 against Punjab and gave Delhi his sixth win of the season.
