Shikhar Dhawan’s comeback in the T20 world in doubt? Opener batsman is top run-getter for Punjab Kings in IPL 2022

Dhawan’s powerplay performance appears to be a concern, as his 109.88 powerplay strike rate this season is the lowest of any batsman who has scored more runs.

Punjab Kings’ Shikhar Dhawan is the franchise’s leading run scorer, with 381 runs at an average of 42.33. However, his performance in the powerplay appears to be lacking, as he has only 178 runs at a strike rate of 109.88 this season, the lowest strike rate of any batsman who has scored more runs.

In today’s encounter between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab kings, Dhawan attempted but failed to complete the sweep. Maxwell succeeded in breaking the perilous stand.

Shikhar Dhawan has been a fantastic addition to the Punjab Kings this season, and he has scored some remarkable runs. After Virat Kohli, he became only the second player in IPL history to reach the milestone of 6000 runs this season. Dhawan has joined PBKS after being purchased by INR 8.25 crore by the franchise during the TATA IPL 2022 auction.

Shikhar Dhawan has a good record against Royal Challengers Bangalore. He has 658 runs at an average of 32.90 against Royal Challengers Bangalore, including six half-centuries. Against the RCB, he had a strike rate of 123.68. Shikhar has batted slowly against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, but his overall figures are respectable.
