Gauti, Dhawan take guard

Wayanad : Back from injury break, Shikhar Dhawan looked in fluent touch as he hit six crisp boundaries in his unbeaten 29 with Delhi finishing the first day’s play at 37 for no loss against Rajasthan in a Ranji Trophy group B encounter on Monday.

This was after Rajasthan were bowled out for 238 in their first innings as the pace trio of Navdeep Saini (3/28 in 15 overs), Vikas Tokas (3/48 in 16 overs) and Sumit Narwal (2/41 in 15 overs) shared the bulk of the spoils.

But the focus on the day was the brief period when Dhawan batted as he hit some delectable drives through the off.

The left-hander, who has now fully recuperated from a thumb fracture will like to spend considerable time in the middle and keep himself in contention for a comeback in the Indian side.
