Gautam Gambhir applauded Shikhar Dhawan for scoring two consecutive IPL hundreds. On Star Sports Cricket Live, he called it a huge achievement and called this an advantage for Delhi Capitals.

Gambhir on Dhawan’s form

Despite two back to back losses, former Delhi Capitals captain has high hopes from the side. The Capitals are now at 2nd position with 14 points in 11 games. Shikhar Dhawan’s form has been great over the last few days and he has scored two back-to-back IPL centuries. Gautam Gambhir think this is a great advantage for the side. He said, “First thing, the record itself is a huge achievement! No other Indian has done it. In fact, no other player has done it in the IPL. Two back to back hundreds, that too in a T20 format.”

Gambhir further added during the chat show on Star Sports Cricket Live, “The more important thing about these two centuries, is the timing, the time at which they have come when the Delhi Capitals need to peak. If your most experienced batsman peaks at this moment and is in his best form, then it’s an advantage for DC.”

DC will reach the playoffs

Delhi Capitals will play their next match on Tuesday against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Gambhir believes that the Capitals are in better place and will surely reach the playoffs. “No doubt the team is reaching the playoffs, but when your opener makes two back-to-back hundreds and if you see his previous scores in the past two innings – 69 and 57 – I think it’s good news for Delhi Capitals and it’s a big advantage for the team.”

Meanwhile, the Purple Cap chart-topper Delhi Capitals pacer Kagiso Rabada said that it is important for the team to get back to the winning ways. “We are getting into the crucial part of the tournament now. And you play against good teams – anyone can win on the day. So, it just shows you how well we have been doing, to have won so many games in the front of the tournament.” He added, “All we need to do is back our strengths, which I am sure we will touch on, and just make small changes where we feel that the game got away from us.”
