Yes, I did score the fastest century on Test debut but I didn't plan to do so. It was a lucky day for me and it just happened. But generally when I am playing days of cricket I do go slow. I do prepare very differently for T20 format, mostly suiting to the demands of the game," Dhawan said.<br /> <br /> The 27-year-old <a href="/tags/Sunrisers-Hyderabad/post" target="_blank">Sunrisers Hyderabad</a> player yesterday returned to the field in the ongoing Indian Premier League, and straightaway hogged the limelight with a blazing half-century against <a href="/tags/Chennai-Super-Kings/post" target="_blank">Chennai Super Kings</a>.<br /> <br /> "When I started batting in the nets I found that I had the same flow and rhythm that I felt during the Test. So, I just came in keeping in mind how to pace my innings and plan it.<br /> <br /> "I worked on my skills in the nets and decided to plan the rest on the basis of the wicket and the bowling," he was quoted as saying by the <a href="/tags/IPL/post" target="_blank">IPL</a> website.<br /> <br /> Forced out of the side due to an injury moments after setting a world record, Dhawan said it was a deeply frustrating break.<br /> <br /> "I batted so well in my first Test and then to miss out on playing the second one was very tough. But I tend to see things in a positive way. I believe things happen for the better."<br /> <br /> Dhawan, who came back to bat after getting hit during yesterday's match, struck four boundaries straightaway.<br /> <br /> "I was just feeling good that the pain had lessened and I was again ready to go and bat. I'm pretty used to this pain I keep getting fractures and such injuries. The pain doesn't take the smile off my face.
