Twitter Imagines Dhawan's Reaction After Ingram Denies Him Maiden IPL Ton With a Six

While there was plenty of time for Shikhar Dhawan to hit his maiden IPL ton (and in all T20 cricket), Colin Ingram smashed a six on the penultimate ball of 19th over, helping Delhi Capitals register a thumping victory over Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens.

Delhi Capitals opener Shikhar Dhawan led from the front and registered his highest score in IPL on Friday night to guide his team to a thumping 7-wicket victory against Kolkata Knight Riders at their home ground Eden Gardens.

Dhawan, who had accumulated only 152 runs in 6 innings at an average of 25.33 and strike rate of 116.03, meant only business when he came out to bat against KKR in front of a packed stadium.

The 33-year-old left-hander smashed 11 boundaries and two maximums in his stunning knock but missed out on a century in the 19th over of DC's chase.




Needing only 12 runs from the last 2 overs, Colin Ingram took the charge and belted 14 in 6 balls to seal DC's consecutive victory in the IPL. While there was plenty of time for Dhawan to hit his maiden IPL ton (and in all T20 cricket), Ingram smashed a six on the penultimate ball of 19th over, when the visitors required 5 to win in 8 deliveries. Dhawan remained unbeaten on 97.

Seeing Dhawan miss out on a well-deserved century, cricket fans on Twitter couldn't help but imagine his reaction after being denied the triple figures by Ingram's match-winning six.














































But what was Dhawan's real reaction?

“I knew it could have been my first T20 hundred but the team goal is more important and so I took that single rather than taking a big risk,” Dhawan said during the post-match presentation.







Delhi Capitals won the match by 7 wickets with 7 deliveries to spare. With this victory, DC has climbed to 4th spot in the IPL points table.
