Dhawan on the attack as he gives de Silva the charge and hammers the off-spinner through the covers for a four.
He plants his front foot across and sweeps the second ball fine on the leg side for another boundary and then takes a single to long-off.
Three more singles as de Silva goes for 12 runs in his fifth over, giving away 31 runs in his five overs.
Sandakan makes the breakthrough with the wicket of Dhawan. The left-hander comes down the track and attempts another big hit but is beaten in the flight and wicketkeeper Dickwella completes an easy stumping.
A good knock from Dhawan, hitting 67 from 91 balls, after he started slowly but changed gears quite effectively in the last 15-20 minutes.
