IPL 2023: In the match between Sunrisers and Punjab Kings at Hyderabad, the home team won the tournament by 8 wickets. But Punjab opener Shikhar Dhawan who batted first scored an unbeaten 99.
From Prabhsimran who came with him as an opener to Mohit Rathi who came as the 11th player in this match, Dhawan had partnership with everyone. Notably, Dhawan put on a 55-run partnership for the 10th wicket with Rathi, who came to the crease as the 11th man. This is also a record.
Dhanav also became the 2nd player in the list of batsman who shared the partnership with all players in the field as an opener in the history of IPL. That means only one person has done so before Dhawan.
Yes, only former Royal Challengers Bangalore player Parthiv Patel is ahead of Dhawan in this rare list. Parthiv Patel, who gave RCB a good start in the 2019 IPL season against Chennai Super Kings, remained at the crease till the end. From the opener who came with him to the 11th player Mohammad Siraj, he teamed up with everyone.
Thus, Parthiv came as an opener in the history of IPL and continued to be the only player who could share with everyone. Shikhar Dhawan, who recently entered the ring as an opener for Punjab, scored an unbeaten 99 runs off 66 balls and ended the team’s innings with the 11th batsman. He became the second player after Parthiv Patel to achieve this feat in the IPL records.
