In the 37th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019, Kings XI Punjab posted a competitive total of 163 for seven against the Delhi Capitals (DC) at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Saturday.
Chasing 164 to win, the DC openers – Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw – started with a bang despite scoring just 1 run in the first over; they clubbed 24 runs in the next two overs. However, Shaw lost his wicket in the fourth over owing to a rocket throw from Mandeep.
Dhawan chipped the ball towards the covers and ran forward a bit. He then changed his mind and moved back to his crease, in the meantime, Mandeep hit the stumps at the non-striker’s end with Shaw left stranded.
