Shikhar Dhawan got his first half-century of the IPL 2024 on Saturday while captaining Punjab Kings’ clash against Lucknow Super Giants at Ekana Cricket Stadium. The 38-year-old got to the landmark in style, slamming Ravi Bishnoi effortlessly out of the park during the eighth over of Punjab’s innings.

Coming to chase an exact 200, Dhawan led by example, and Bishnoi, one of the finest spinners in India, was at the receiving end. The leg-spinner bowled a tossed-up delivery right into the slot, and Dhawan, batting on 44* off 31 balls, played a gorgeous lofted drive over deep mid-wicket.

The ball went as many as 96-metres, making it one of the biggest sixes of the season. Notably, he slammed an excellent reverse-sweep earlier to get to his 150th IPL six.

However, Bishnoi came back sharply after that, conceding three runs off his following over to improve his numbers to 0/11 off his first two overs. Punjab, meanwhile, are batting on 102/0 after 11.3 overs, with Shikhar batting on 60* off 41 balls. Jonny Bairstow, on the other end, is batting on 42* off 28 balls.
