Delhi Capitals opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been in tremendous form in IPL 2020. Particularly in the last three matches for the DC, Dhawan has scored 69*, 57 and 101*.

He is currently also the second highest scorer in IPL 2020 with 421 runs, just behind KXIP skipper KL Rahul.

On Tuesday against the Kings XI Punjab in Dubai, the DC batsman also became the 5th player in IPL history to go past 5000 runs. Prior to Tuesday’s match he was 62 runs short of the milestone.

With this, Dhawan has joined an elite list of players to have crossed the 5000 run-mark.

At the top of the list is Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli who leads with 5759 runs. Following him is Chennai Super Kings batsman Suresh Raina with 5368 runs. Unfortunately, Raina is not playing in IPL 2020 due to personal reasons.

Rohit Sharma (5158) and David Warner (5037) are the other two players to make it to the elite list, and both the players managed to get to the milestone in IPL 2020.

In his last match against the Chennai Super Kings, Dhawan also got his maiden IPL century when he scored an unbeaten 101 in 58 balls, with 14 fours and 1 six.

On Tuesday, he reached the 5000 run-mark with a stunning six of KXIP spinner Ravi Bishnoi when he went down on one knee and swept a length ball away for an 81-metre haul.
