IPL 2020: Cricket fraternity praises Mohammad Shami as he takes his career-best 3/15

Marcus Stoinis' 21-ball 53 took DC to a respectable 157/8 in 20 overs.

Mohammad Shami registered his IPL best figures of 3/15 | IANSThe IPL 2020 saw its second match, which is being played between Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab in Dubai. KXIP’s new skipper KL Rahul won the toss and chose to chase in a seemingly difficult to bat pitch.

His choice was proven correct as Shikhar Dhawan got run out for a duck, while Mohammad Shami dismissed Prithvi Shaw for 5 and then had Shimron Hetmyer caught in covers for 7, leaving DC 13/3 in 4 overs.

After resting a bit, Shami was called upon once more and he delivered by removing a well set DC captain Shreyas Iyer for 39 after his 73-run partnership with Rishabh Pant (31) was broken by Ravi Bishnoi, who made his IPL debut in the match.

Shami and his new-ball partner, West Indies’ Sheldon Cottrell got the ball to swing in the air and seam off the wicket, as DC batsmen struggled to get any rhythm throughout the match.

Marcus Stoinis smacked the bejesus out of KXIP bowlers in the last 3-4 overs and made 53 in just 21 balls with 3 sixes and 7 fours, including 30 runs coming in the last over bowled by Chris Jordan.

Mohammad Shami registered his career-best IPL figures of 3/15 in 4 overs and the cricket fraternity was quick to praise his amazing bowling on Twitter.
