IPL 2018: Feels Good to Win Orange Cap for the First Time – Shikhar Dhawan
Sunrisers Hyderabad opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan was awarded the orange cap after their game against Mumbai Indians.
The veteran batsman has won it for the first time in his IPL career. He is visibly delighted for winning orange cap. Dhawan has been in sensational form over the past 12 months for Indian team.
He has managed to score another impressive show in a low-scoring thriller against Mumbai Indians on Thursday. His overall score tally has now gone to 122 runs in just two games.
Since David Warner is not available for this IPL, the onus is on experienced Shikhar Dhawan to deliver, and he is delivering in some style.
Speaking after receiving the orange cap, Shikhar Dhawan said:
“It feels good. I get it (orange cap) for the first time in 10 years. Very happy about it.”
Mayank Markande Wins Purple Cap
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians’ new sensation, Mayank Markande had once again starred against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The young Punjabi lad now has seven wickets in his first two games in Indian Premier League.
He took an impressive four wickets against Sunrisers and tilted the game towards Mumbai Indians. However, the last ball four by Billy Stanlake had ensured the hosts clinched a thriller.
Shikhar Dhawan handed over the purple cap to Markande and praised the youngster. He was very much impressed with the bowling skills of Markande and has revealed his interest in playing him in the future.
“He (Mayank Markande) is very good. Look forward to playing against him. Very impressive bowling performance,” said Dhawan after their narrow win.
