IPL 2021: Shikhar Dhawan returns to top of Orange Cap table
Shikhar Dhawan returned to the top the Orange Cap table after his unbeaten knock of 69 in Delhi Capitals’ (DC) seven-wicket win over Punjab Kings (PBKS) within the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Dhawan anchored a chase of a target of 167, which DC got with up to 14 balls to spare, hence helping him overtake PBKS captain KL Rahul, who didn’t play Sunday’s match.
Rahul is accepted to a medical center with intense appendicitis and certainly will need surgery. While PBKS are yet to express how long it may need due to their captain to go back, it could imply he can be missing in suits into the immediate future, consequently he could fall more within the competition for Orange Cap.
Mayank Agarwal, whom endured in as PBKS captain as opposed to Rahul on Sunday, is currently sixth available with 260 runs after their unbeaten 99. Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) Jos Buttler, who scored their maiden T20 ton on Sunday, rose to seventh with 254 runs for period.
Into the Purple Cap standings, SunRisers Hyderabad’s Rashid Khan is 5th with 10 wickets after choosing one wicket in Sunday’s match against RR. Harshal Patel still holds the Purple Cap with 17 wickets and could boost their tally on Monday when Royal Challengers Bangalore face Kolkata Knight Riders.
