Shaw was struck by the last ball of the third over, and he pulled his pants up and looked at it, then grinned. The DC opener was struck by a 140 kph delivery. Mohammed Shami immediately inquired about his well-being.
Shaw not only got the Capitals off to a fast start, but he also put together a vital 63-run partnership with Shikhar Dhawan for the first wicket while chasing a modest 167 to win. “We got off to a great start thanks to Shikhar and Prithvi. The ball was gripping in the first innings, and it was still gripping in the second, but the way they started was commendable. After the victory, Pant praised the DC openers, saying, "It feels so good when you have a great start in every match."
Shaw has already scored 308 runs in the tournament, averaging 38 runs per game. What stands out about him is his strike rate of 166.49.
