IPL 2020, CSK vs DC: Prithvi Shaw scores half-century after MS Dhoni fails to spot an inside edge
New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: Delhi Capitals batsman Prithvi Shaw went on to score 64 runs in 43 balls against Chennai Super Kings on Friday after MS Dhoni uncharacteristically failed to spot an inside edge from the opener in the second ball of the innings when he was playing on 0.
Shaw had got a feather on his bat on the second delivery of the first over bowled by Deepak Chahar. No one appealed at that time and the Delhi opener went on to score 64, guiding his team to 175 at a loss of three wickets by the end of the 20th over.
On being asked about the inside edge after the match, Shaw cheekily replied, "Was there an inside edge? I didn't know."
Shaw's fiery 64 off 43 balls, with nine fours and one six helped Delhi Capitals reach 175 in their 20 overs. In the innings break, Shaw said he discussed about his performance in the last game with the team management which helped him against Chennai. The 20-year-old Indian opener said that it was about getting into a good position in the powerplay and not lose more than one wicket which helped his side against Chennai.
"I think we had a slow start but carried on playing our shots after that and capitalized well. I thought I would play my natural game, but a lot of ground shots because it's a nice outfield. I was trying to hit boundaries instead of making silly mistakes," Shaw said.
Shaw's performance helped Delhi Capitals beat Chennai Super Kings by 44 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Ground. The team has won its first two matches of the tournament while Chennai has low lost two consecutive matches.
