Shikhar Dhawan was struggling to find form since he returned from the series in Australia. In the six domestic matches he played, he got out on single digit scores on five occasions and once he scored a half century. But the Delhi batsman shun his critics by playing an innings of 153 runs of 118 balls to take Delhi on the second spot of group D in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
Earlier in the match, Maharashtra did well to take their team’s score to 328. Kedar Jadhav’s 86 and Azim Kazi’s 91 took the team’s total to a considerably good score. But Dhawan spilled water on Maharashtra’s hopes. His innings along with 61 by Dhruv Shorey and finishing touches by Kshitiz Sharma took Delhi to victory in 49.2 overs.
