Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings are playing in the first qualifier in Dubai. Prithvi Shaw gave his team a great start scoring 60 off 34 balls. He hit seven fours and three sixes and was timing the ball well. Chennai kept pegging away with wickets but Shaw’s knock kept the scorecard moving for Delhi.
Meanwhile, earlier in the innings, Shaw clubbed a six to Shardul Thakur over square leg. A fan took a one-handed catch and enjoyed the moment after he was snapped up by the camera. He was ultimately dismissed for 60 at the wrong time for his team.
Prithvi Shaw Falls For 60
Ravindra Jadeja bowling accurately came into bowl the 11th over. Seeing an opportunity, Shaw tried to chip one over cover but had timed the ball to well as it reached till Faf who completed a clean catch at the cover boundary. A juicy toss-up outside off, Prithvi Shaw went for the inside-out loft and got it off the toe only for Du Plessis to complete an easy catch. Shaw was the first Delhi Capitals batsman to score a fifty in the UAE leg of IPL 2021.
Delhi have beaten CSK twice in the league phase in this IPL season. This is Rishabh Pant’s first playoff match as the captain of the Delhi side. He said he was nervous at the toss and looking forward to the contest.
“Slightly nervous, but it’s part and parcel of the game. One change for us – Ripal Patel goes out, Tom Curran comes in. When you win games, the confidence level is high, but we’ll not take the match lightly” said Pant.
MS Dhoni has played in numerous playoff games in the past and also won three titles as captain. He spoke about keeping the process simple having looked back at their three consecutive defeats heading into the playoffs.
“Whatever games we have played so far, the guys felt there was a bit of help for the seamers initially. It’s a tough wicket, not one that gets drastically better later on. We try to keep it simple, irrespective of any game. We analyse our shortcomings and it has helped us” said Dhoni.
