Sunrisers Hyderabad opener Shikhar Dhawan always starts slow in limited-overs cricket. He takes time to settle down and then unleashes his strokes. He consumes so much dot balls in the beginning of the innings that it puts pressure on his partner to score runs quickly. His strike rate, thus, goes for a toss.
Dhawan’s strike rate is the slowest in the ongoing IPL among batsmen who have consumed at least 100 balls. Dhawan’s strike rate is 112.50 in this IPL.
Dhawan has scored 135 runs @27 off 120 balls with a strike rate of 112.50 and has a highest score of 48 in 5 IPL matches. It has hurt the Sunrisers as they have not had a rapid start yet.
