The Punjab Kings won two out of two and held off Rajasthan Royals' late-innings assault to end Guwahati’s IPL debut.
Dhawan became the third batter, after Virat Kohli and David Warner, to score 50 runs of 50 or more in the IPL.
A fan posted a photo of it on Twitter. The caption was "Teams such as RR and PBKS don't matter in IPL. No doubt Star sports highlights the whole day with CSK, MI, and RCB."
The action-packed powerplay began with Jaiswal swatting Curran's first ball into the crowd at deep square legs.
