Prithvi Shaw went hammer and tongs on Thursday as Delhi Capitals thrashed Kolkata Knight Riders by seven wickets in Ahmedabad. Shaw pulverised KKR bowlers, smashing 82 runs off 41 balls to make a short work of KKR’s 154 for 6 as DC overhauled the target in just 16.3 overs. Such was Shaw’s dominance that Shikhar Dhawan, the highest scorer for DC in the tournament thus far, played a much subdued 46 off 47 balls. Together, Shaw and Dhawan added 132 for the first wicket in just under 14 overs.
