  • KKR vs DC Head-to-Head

Ganguly was in the centre of attention for his dual role as IPL franchise Delhi Capitals advisor while serving as the president of Cricket Association of Bengal.

Shikhar Dhawan made sure that Sourav Ganguly had the last laugh in his own backyard with an unbeaten 97 as Delhi Capitals (DC) did a double on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by scripting a seven-wicket victory in their reverse Indian Premier League (IPL) fixture at the Eden Gardens yesterday. "He is a great talent, he is an absolutely terrific player and he is only going to get better", Ganguly said during the post-match press conference.

Ganguly also spoke highly of young stumper-batsman Rishabh Pant who partnered with Dhawan for a 105-run second wicket stand, scoring a matured 31-ball 46 a day after head coach Ricky Ponting asked him to bat out the full death overs.

Shikhar Dhawan's 97* would be his 50 half-century in T20 cricket.

"Shikhar Dhawan will always play better in the World Cup, he plays very well in England".

It may go unnoticed, but Prithvi Shaw's two sixes off Lockie Ferguson in the second over had a multiplier effect on the chase.

Wolves controlled proceedings in the second half but the usually dependable Raul Jimenez hacked their best opening out for a throw-in.


Then in the chase, Dhawan, who has been sluggish so far in the tournament, pottering around in the Powerplay to put vast pressure on the middle order, came out flying high and swatting short deliveries to the square boundaries.

Dhawan was batting on 97 when Delhi required 5 runs.

Joe Denly fell first ball to an Ishant Sharma peach, an inducker sneaking through the gap to flatten off stump.

On Delhi's decision to field after Shreyas Iyer won the toss. We were just talking about taking the match deep and that both of us should remain there till the end, Rishabh Pant said.

All-rounders: Who else but Andre Russell?

On his new role, Ganguly said: "It is much more hard to sit in the dugout than playing in the middle". There were talks of "conflict of interest" with few of his detractors claiming that he would have "a say" in pitch preparation at Eden Gardens. They lost another one as Dinesh Karthik also departed. I know many stories are cooked up, but I can't do anything about it. KKR was my team, DC is also my team.
