IPL 2021: Delhi Capitals’ Shikhar Dhawan ready to continue his dominance in IPL’s UAE leg – Check video – Delhi Capitals opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan, who is the current highest run-scorer in IPL 2021, is looking all set to continue his dominance in IPL’s UAE leg scheduled to kick start on September 19, Sunday. Dhawan on Saturday practices his sweep shots to perfection. The left-hand opener was left out from the Indian squad for ICC T20 World Cup which will also take place in UAE later this year. Dhawan has a point to prove in the remaining phase of IPL 2021.
“Setting a field for Gabbar when he’s on song must be a nightmare #YehHaiNayiDilli #IPL2021 #DCAllAccess @OctaFX @SDhawan25,” Delhi Capitals wrote in the caption of Shikhar Dhawan’s video where he can be seen doing batting practice. He is especially focusing on sweep shots in this video.
