After consistent performances since the inaugural edition of the IPL, India’s star opener Shikhar “Gabbar” Dhawan returned to his hometown to bolster the Delhi Capitals’ batting unit in 2019. After dominating the show with the bat, Dhawan has now moved to PBKS after being bought by the franchise for Rs. 8.25 crore during the TATA IPL 2022 auction. Dhawan had a great run with the bat in the IPL 2022 season scoring 460 runs from 14 matches at an average of 38.33. With a wealth of experience under his belt and a large chunk of runs against his name, the swashbuckling left-hander will be crucial to PBKS’ fortunes as he leads the side in this edition of the IPL.
