IPL 2019: It is like asking a kid to choose between the mother and the father, the kid is confused as to whom to impress. In a similar way, young gun Prithvi Shaw, who was on the mic, was asked by the commentators to make a choice between Sourav and Ponting. Shaw was confused as he did not want to pick one and make the other unhappy. So what he did was, act as if he cannot hear anything. Shaw is being seen as a future star and is lucky to be getting to spend time with legends like Ponting and Ganguly and hence he had to be diplomatic and he was. The commentators could figure that out as they had a huge laugh over it.
Here is the video.
Meanwhile, Delhi beat Rajasthan by six wickets to go top of the points table.
It was Rishabh Pant’s scintillating (78 unbeaten off 36) along with solid contributions by openers Shikhar Dhawan (54 off 27 balls) and Prithvi Shaw (42) powered Delhi Capitals gun down Rajasthan Royals’ 192-run target with four balls to spare in their Indian Premier League (IPL) contest at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.
Earlier in the day, Rahane slammed a classy century to help Royals set a formidable 191.
