Delhi Capitals’ young opening batsman Prithvi Shaw stole the spotlight during the game against Kolkata Knight Riders. The right-handed batsman stunned the cricket fraternity after he struck 6 boundaries in an over off Shivam Mavi’s bowling. Shaw helped DC get off to a blistering start during the run-chase of 155.
In the process, he went on to score a magnificent half-century off just 18 balls. Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan enjoyed Shaw batting from the other end as he kept on rotating the strike to the youngster such that he would make most of it. Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan laid a rock-solid foundation for the opening wicket with a 132-run partnership.
After Dhawan departed for 46 including 4 fours and a six, Prithvi Shaw departed in the 16th over. The aggressive opening batsman went on to score an imperious 82 off just 41 balls including 11 boundaries and 3 sixes at a strike rate of 200. KKR fast bowler Pat Cummins dismissed him with pretty good delivery.
