Prithvi Shaw’s 18-ball 50 guided Delhi Capitals to a seven-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Thursday.

Electing to bowl, DC restricted KKR to 154/6. During the chase, Shaw hit top gear in the first over by smashing 25 runs off Shivam Mavi. The fast bowler started with a wide and ended up conceding six fours. Shaw unlocked his catalogue to demonstrate the top shots — the loft over the bowler’s head, flick over deep mid-wicket followed by two exquisite cover drives.

Shikhar Dhawan (46 off 47) rotated the strike and encouraged the youngster to attack the bowlers.
