Punjab Kings captain Shikhar Dhawan on Monday (May 8) completed a half-century of fifties in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Dhawan achieved the feat in a game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens.

Dhawan is the third player to accomplish the milestone after Delhi Capitals captain David Warner and Royal Challengers Bangalore star Virat Kohli. Dhawan, who is ninth in the list of top scorers, has hit three half-centuries in eight games so far in the ongoing IPL 2023.

The veteran India opener Dhawan played a crucial role in Punjab Kings' innings against Kolkata Knight

Riders, playing a fighting knock of 57. His 47-ball innings was studded with nine boundaries and one maximum.

During the initial stage of IPL 2023, Dhawan missed three games after picking up a shoulder injury during a match against Gujarat Titans on April 13. He returned to lead Punjab Kings in their eighth match against LSG on April 28. Before being out for 15 days, Dhawan had hit 233 runs, including two fifties, in four matches.

Dhawan, who was named PBKS captain following the release of Mayank Agarwal ahead of the IPL 2023, now has 349 runs, including an unbeaten 99, in eight matches.
