Shikhar Dhawan is a force to be reckoned with inside the mandatory PowerPlay. The dasher hit the ground running in grand style with an authoritative cover-drive in the second T20I versus Sri Lanka. India cruised to 45 for no loss when the field regulations terminated at the end of the 6th over, with Dhawan looking in his element on a personal score of 23.

The captain has added responsibility on his shoulders tonight, with the team slightly light on batting depth in the aftermath of the Krunal Pandya Covid episode.
