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 here on Friday.

DC had won the one-over eliminator against KKR in the first leg played in Delhi on March 30. With Friday’s win, DC moved to the fourth position in the points tally with 8 points from 7 matches, while KKR remained at the second spot with equal number of points but a superior net run-rate.

A ‘visitor’ at the Eden Gardens, DC advisor Ganguly watched Dhawan miss out on a maiden T20 hundred from the dugout as the southpaw (97*; 63 balls, 4×11, 6×2) roared back to form just three days ahead of India’s World Cup team selection.
