Shikhar Dhawan is finally giving a tight fight to KL Rahul in the Orange Cap table. In Qualifier 2 of IPL 2020, Delhi Capitals set a target of 190 runs based on a brilliant 78 off 50 balls from Shikhar Dhawan. Everyone at the Capitals top order did their bit. Marcus Stoinis added 38 runs off 27 balls followed by Shreyas Iyer (21) and Shimron Hetmyer (42*). In reply, a gritty 67 from Kane Williamson failed to save Sunrisers Hyderabad.
