Prithvi Shaw and the Delhi Capitals got off to a superb start in their IPL final qualifier against the Chennai Super Kings on Sunday. Shaw was smashing it to all parts at the top of the order, including a particularly special straight six. The Capitals did lose the wicket of Shikhar Dhawan for 7 off 7 balls, courtesy of the bowling of Josh Hazelwood, to leave themselves 36/1 off 3.2 overs. With Shaw still at the crease though and reaching 42 off 18 balls by the time Shreyas Iyer departed, they still found themselves in a fairly strong position.
