IPL 2021 Prithvi Shaw hits six fours in one over of Shivam Mavi.
Prithvi Shaw hit six fours in Delhi Capitals (DC) first chase against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the ongoing 2021 IPL in Ahmedabad on Thursday.
Shaw sent all six legal deliveries of opening pitcher Shivam Mavi to the limit and went on to score 82 in just 41 deliveries to help DC beat KKR by seven wickets.
With the milestone, he became the second player in IPL after teammate Ajinkya Rahane to accomplish the feat.
The onslaught began when Shaw hit a direct aerial path across the ground in front of Shivam Mavi. He kept throwing a pitch thrown over the bowler’s head for four on the next ball.
The right-hander then whipped the next ball over the midwicket before pumping a drive through the offside of the third ball. He then directed one through the blankets of a low full pitch outside. For the fifth ball, Shaw hit through the spot backward before finishing off with a burgeoning momentum through additional coverage.

“I wasn’t thinking of anything, to be honest. I was just waiting for the loose balls. I knew where Shivam will play, we have played (in age group) together for four or five years, ”Shaw said in the post-match presentation.
“The first four to five balls he threw were half volleys, so I was prepared for the short ball, but he didn’t throw.”

Asked about the ups and downs you have faced recently. Shaw said, “My dad has been very supportive of me. After returning from Australia, I was not happy with myself. My dad just asked me to play my natural game.
“All these words set a goal for me and I worked hard. In cricket, the charts will go up and down, many failures will come my way. ”
Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant said that Shaw is a talented player and that he can do wonders if he is confident in himself.
“I was just telling him to play the normal game. In this type of match, we can afford to think about the execution rate. The only thing we talk to young people is just enjoying cricket, doing the best you can, “said Pant.
