The opener of Delhi Capitals, Prithvi Shaw scored 82 runs in 41-balls against Kolkata Knight Riders. This allowed DC to chase down the target of 155 runs in just 16.3 overs with a comprehensive 7-wicket win.
Just below Chennai Super Kings with 10 points in the league table on the current date, KKR stands at the second spot on the points table. Besides, Prithvi Shaw scored the fastest fifty of Indian Premier League 2021 in 18 balls on Thursday (29 May).
The 25th match of the tournament was held in Ahmedabad and turned out to be a feast for DC fans. Prithvi hogged the limelight with his six consecutive boundaries against Shivam Mavi in the opening over.
This is the record repeated by the second batsman after his teammate Ajinkya Rahane did so in the history of the league. Also, the former Indian opener Virender Sehwag was highly impressed with Prithvi’s power-packed performance and reckons he couldn’t smash consecutive boundaries like Shaw did in yesterday’s match.
