India’s Opening Batsman Shikhar Dhawan may be the first cricketer to score back to back centuries in IPL, but the feat has been achieved in the past in the T20s. Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper and Australian Opening Batsman David Warner had slammed consecutive centuries in 2011 Champions League T20. David Warner hit brilliant hundred against CSK and RCB while playing for New South Wales Blues.
Also, Dhawan is not the first India to slam back to back tons in the T20s. Under-19 World Cup-winning captain Unmukt Chand is the first Indian to score two consecutive T20 tons. He did in the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament. The feat is nothing new, it had been achieved twice in England’s T20 Blast. Luke Wright, in 2014, and Michael Klinger, in 2015, scored more two back-to-back tons in consecutive outings.
Former English cricketer Kevin Pietersen also achieved this unique feat in 2015 in South Africa’s Ram Slam T20 tournament.
