Another Delhi Capitals batsman was denied a century, but this time by his batting partner. Delhi needed five runs to gun down Kolkata Knight Riders' target of 179, with Shikhar Dhawan on 97 at the non-striker's end.

Colin Ingram was expected to nudge the ball for a single and give the strike back to Dhawan. But the South African instead heaved the floater off Piyush Chawla over long-on for a six to seal a seven-wicket win for Delhi.

Prithvi Shaw was the first Delhi batsman to miss out on his century by one run in the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Dhawan bouncing back to form is a great sign for his franchise and the timing of it with the Indian squad for the World Cup being announced in two day's time.

"I knew it could be my first T20 hundred but the team goal is more important, hence I took that single rather than taking a huge risk. I really enjoyed in the first six overs but I knew I had to stay till the last and take the game deep," Dhawan said during the post-match presentation.
