Prithvi Shaw is putting an exhibition of high-class batting against mighty Chennai Super Kings in Mumbai. Shaw after a crazy home domestic season is continuing his form in IPL 2021 and literally middling every delivery. The talented opening batsman from ball 1 looked in great batting rhythm and showing why he is rated so highly in Indian cricket. Chasing a target of 189, DC needed a flying start from their openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan.

Very impressed so far by Prithvi Shaw. He is such a natural stroke player but, other than one false shot, has chosen his deliveries to hit really well.
