Is moving forward in a very exciting way. The match played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals on Thursday was completely named after Prithvi Shaw. Shaw, batting stormy, helped his team to a big win by 7 wickets. He also became the second batsman to score the fastest half-century for the Delhi Capitals.
Prithvi Shaw did a great job
Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw started storming as soon as he came, when in the first over of Shivam Mavi, he hit 6 consecutive fours off 6 balls. After this, Shaw’s thunderstorm did not stop and he made a half-century in just 18 balls.
With this, Shaw became the second batsman to score the fastest half-century for the Delhi Capitals in the IPL. Although the storm of Prithvi Shaw did not stop, he smashed 82 runs from 41 balls at a strike rate of 200 and gave the team a one-sided victory.
Chris Morris hit a half-century off 17 balls
Talking of the fastest half-century for Delhi Capitals, South Africa’s Chris Morris is at number-1 in this list. Morris has played half-century in 17 balls for Delhi. Rishabh Pant had scored a half-century while playing for Delhi from 18 balls. Today Prithvi has equaled Rishabh.
Let us tell you, this was the second time in the IPL, when a batsman hit 6 fours in 6 balls. Earlier, Ajinkya Rahane, a member of Delhi Capitals, has done this feat. Rahane, playing for Rajasthan Royals in 2012, hit six fours in a single over from Srinath Aravind against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Now Shaw turned 6 fours for Shivam Mavi, turning it into an over nightmare.
