The Delhi opener slammed another hundred against Windies in the second game of the 2013 CT

Dhawan had just slammed a hundred against the Proteas in the Champions Trophy opener and was determined to continue his good form against the West Indies in India's second game. Chasing 234 for victory after Jadeja's five-wicket haul had disrupted the West Indies innings, Dhawan and Rohit Sharma put on yet another 100-run stand. 

With the tricky Sunil Narine at their disposal, Windies were no pushovers on a sluggish wicket but the Indian openers played patiently. After Rohit departed with India on 101, the SRH opener took on the anchor role to ensure the Men in Blue cruised home by eight wickets. He remained unbeaten on 102 in the company of Dinesh Karthik, who hit a half-century himself.
