Shikhar Dhawan slams first century after 167 innings; breaks this record
Shikhar Dhawan scored a splendid century against Chennai Super Kings on Saturday which helped Delhi Capitals beat MS Dhoni's men by five wickets. The win also steered DC to the top of the table in IPL 2020.
It was Dhawan's first T20 century in a long career, and as he breached the three-figure mark, he also registered his name in the Indian Premier League record books.
Dhawan has now taken the longest innings to score a hundred in the IPL.
It took the DC opener 167 innings to score his first century -- going past Virat Kohli, who had scored his first IPL hundred after 120 innings.
