Dubai, September 25
Opener Prithvi Shaw smashed 64 off 43 balls while Rishabh Pant hit a 25-ball 37 as Delhi Capitals’ scored a decent 175 for 3 against Chennai Super Kings in an IPL match here on Friday.
Shaw’s innings had nine fours and a six while he added 94 for the first wicket with Shikhar Dhawan (35 off 27 balls). However skipper Shreyas Iyer (26 off 22 balls) had a rare off-day as he consumed a few dot balls and DC may have ended at least 10 to 15 runs short of a safe score.
Piyush Chawla after a horrendous last game had a decent outing picking 2 for 33 while Sam Curran got the other wicket.
Earlier, Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to bowl.
Brief Scores: Delhi Capitals 175/3 (Prithvi Shaw 64 off 43 balls, Shikhar Dhawan 35 off 27 balls, Rishabh Pant 37 off 25 balls; Piyush Chawla 2/33) vs CSK. PTI
