Poor piece of fielding by Amit Mishra
During the game, the Delhi born cricketer Amit Mishra showcased a poor piece of fielding at the third man region. In the 13th over of the game bowled by Marcus Stoinis, Ambati Rayudu tried to pull the ball which hit his ribs and cleared the wicket-keeper for four.
However, Amit Mishra was just closer to the ball but he could not even try to stop the ball before it clears the boundary line. Fans started criticizing the 38-year-old spinner for his poor performance in the fielding.
Besides, Chennai Super Kings posted 188 runs on the board with the help of Sam Curran and Ravindra Jadeja at the end.
Chasing the total, Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw opened the innings for Delhi Capitals and started dominating the opposition bowlers all around the park. Both the batsmen looking phenomenal with the willow as they are giving hard chances for the CSK fielders.
Shikhar Dhawan on one end is batting on 65 runs whereas Prithvi Shaw has been removed by Dwayne Bravo after scoring 72 off just 38 balls including 9 boundaries and 3 sixes to his name.
