Dhawan scores century in Ranji

Delhi captain Shikhar Dhawan batted against the Hyderabad bowlers on the opening day of the Ranji Trophy game at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Wednesday.

An elated Dhawan, said, "Conditions were challenging as the ball was doing a bit in the morning,” he said after the day’s play. “The wicket is juicy as there was no sunshine to bake it. It’s less now but nevertheless there is juice. Hopefully when we get the new ball, we will be able to do the damage.

“I changed my game when the left-arm spinner (Mehidy Hasan) was bowling, I was itching to hit him. But looking at the overall situation, I curbed my instincts as there wasn’t much batting left.  

On these wickets you tend to get good balls. It was more like England conditions. It’s good as scoring runs in these conditions helps boost confidence,” he explained.
