Delhi Capitals got back into their winning ways after sealing a comfortable 7-wicket victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmadabad on Thursday night, all thanks to Prithvi Shaw and his hitting spree.
In match 25 of the Indian Premier League (IPL), KKR was sent to bat first, with Shubman Gill giving his best, scoring 43 runs off 38 deliveries. However, other top-order batsmen failed to perform and the team managed a score of 154 runs after 20 overs.
Eyeing their fifth win of the season, DC got off to a great start with Prithvi Shaw hitting six boundaries in the first over.
Fans of DC took to Twitter to celebrate the team’s victory. Many others also showered words of appreciation for Shaw, who held a batting master class.
