Punjab Kings opener Shikhar Dhawan has got off to a slow start in the IPL. He is yet to score his first fifty for the Kings. The southpaw got starts in both the games he played. Punjab lost their previous game against KKR and is looking to get back to winning ways.
Shikhar Dhawan is eyeing to get past a couple of key records against CSK. The southpaw who has hit the most number of fours in IPL history (660) is just 7 short of completing 1000 boundaries in his T20 career.
With 993 fours in the shortest format, Dhawan is fifth on the list of batters with the most number of boundaries behind the likes of Chris Gayle (1132), Alex Hales (1054), David Warner (1005), and Aaron Finch (998). Four more fours will take him to 1000 fours in his T20 career and he will join an elite list of players.
Dhawan also has a chance to get past Virat Kohli for the most runs scored by a batter against CSK. Kohli has scored 948 runs against CSK so far and the southpaw needs 43 more runs to overtake the former RCB skipper.
Shikhar Dhawan Set To Surpass Virat Kohli
Shikhar Dhawan was earlier released by Delhi Capitals ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. He had two good seasons with the Capitals scoring 618 and 587 runs in the 2020 and 2021 editions respectively. Getting an opportunity, Punjab Kings roped in Dhawan for 8.25 crores and in the process, made a strong squad along with the likes of Kagiso Rabada, Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow.
Rajasthan Royals are currently topping the points table after winning their first two games of the season. Their latest win was against Mumbai Indians who lost by 14 runs against the inaugural IPL champions.
