Shikhar Dhawan got India's campaign in the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy off to a flying start as he registered his first hundred in one-day internationals in the tournament opener against South Africa in Cardiff on Thursday. (Match scorecard)
Dhawan, who became Indian cricket's latest poster boy by scoring a swashbuckling ton on Test debut versus Australia, reached the three-figure mark with a swat over deep square leg off the bowling of Rory Klienveldt. (Live Blog)
Like his debut century in Tests, which came off 85 balls, Dhawan's maiden ton in the coloured clothing for India came in just 80 balls. I am courageous by nature: Dhawan
Dhawan hit 12 fours and a six in his 94-ball 114 which ended in the 38th over when he swept off spinner JP Duminy to square leg.
