How face shield-wearing Rishi Dhawan got back on his feet after getting hit on face and three cheekbone fractures

His face shield was the theme of many Gifs and made all-rounder Rishi Dhawan laugh too. But the on-field incident, after which he wore the shield as a protective gear, had resulted in serious injury.

IPL 2022, GT vs PBKS: Punjab Kings need a victory against Gujarat Titans as playoff battle heats up | Cricket News – Times of India

Gujarat Titans' ability to wriggle out of improbable situations, march to convincing last-over victories or defend below-par totals has been a highlight of this IPL season. Consider this: Two of their five chases this season culminated on the last ball while the rest were decided in the last over. While doing well in parts and recording a triumph augurs well for the squad's belief, what has not been on display is an all-round performance. That is something the Titans would like to change on Tuesday against the Punjab Kings at Pune's DY Patil Stadium. On the other hand, having triumphed in three out of their first five clashes, Punjab Kings have now won just one of their last four games and can least afford to put a foot wrong as the race for the playoffs heats up. The onus will be on ca...

MUMBAI: Punjab Kings' all-rounder Rishi Dhawan, who was playing his first Indian Premier League (IPL) match after a long gap of almost six years, grabbed everyone's attention by sporting a face-shield while bowling against Chennai Super Kings on Monday.

IPL 2022, PBKS vs CSK: Punjab Kings hold nerve against Chennai Super Kings to prevail by 11 runs | Cricket News – Times of India

Maybe because of the 'used pitch' at the Wankhede Stadium, Punjab Kings went in with a more calculated batting approach led by the dependable Shikhar Dhawan, whose ninth half-century against Chennai Super Kings helped his side romp home by 11 runs, overcoming Ambati Rayudu's single-handed effort. Tottering at 40/3, Chennai needed the experience of Rayudu, whose 78 off 39 balls, comprising seven fours and six massive sixes, seemed to get the chase of 188 back on track. But it was the disciplined effort of the Punjab bowlers, especially Kagiso Rabada and comeback man Rishi Dhawan, that pulled the red and gold brigade back into the match.

IPL 2022: Rishi Dhawan face guard becomes talking point of PBKS vs CSK

IPL fans were in for a curious surprise when Punjab Kings bowler Rishi Dhawan wore some kind of head protection who came in to bowl the 5th over against Chennai Super Kings on Monday. Dhawan bowled a decent little 5th over, yielding just 7 runs but his face guard was the talk of the town as netizens wondered what it was. This is not a unique thing as New Zealand player Andrew Ellis sported a customized helmet in 2019 when bowling. Ellis was seen sporting a helmet seen more common in baseball than cricket on the field in the match between Canterbury and Northern Districts in a Ford Trophy match back in 2019.
