After losing marginally against RCB, the Delhi Capitals(DC) make an astonishing comeback and win comprehensively against the Kolkata Knight Riders by 7 wickets. The DC openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw regained their form in the previous games, but they played their A-game to take their side across the line.

The Capitals won the toss and elected to bowl first in the 25th match (IPL 2021). KKR‘s batting line-up shattered and they were smitten at 154 in 20 overs. The capitals were looking forward to chasing the total as quickly as possible to maintain the net run rate at the points table.

Indian batsmen and DC opener Prithvi Shaw was playing in a completely different zone, he became the first-ever batsmen in the history of IPL to hit six fours in the very first over of the Innings and second Indian batsmen to hit six fours in a single over.

The Prithvi Shaw Show:

DC’s set openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw played a sensational knock. Prithvi played one of his finest innings in the IPL. In the very first over he took on Shivam Mavi and scored 25 runs in a single over.

Prithvi Shaw began the onslaught with a crisp aerial straight drive down the ground, followed with a flick shot on the leg-side for the second four in the over. Mavi tried the yorker, missed his length, and the ball ended up being a half-volley outside off, which Shaw dispatched for another bludgeoning cover drive. Mavi then tried whatever he could to stop his former teammate but remained unsuccessful to do.

Shaw and his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan brought up their fourth fifty-run partnership of the season. Shaw went on to celebrate his fantastic start by scoring a half-century off just 18 balls – the fastest fifty of this edition of the IPL.

Before Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane was the only Indian batsmen to hit six-fours in a single over. Back in 2012 playing for the Rajasthan Royals, Rahane hit six fours off six balls to the left-arm pacer Sreenath Aravind who was representing Royal Challengers Bangalore.

With a smashing victory against the Knight Riders, DC has completed the first leg of the tournament, they will next play the Punjab Kings on the 2nd of May.
