KKR vs DC: Watch - Ball Goes For Four After Umesh Yadav's Bouncer Hits Prithvi Shaw's Helmet

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) pacer Umesh Yadav dealt a heavy blow to Delhi Capitals (DC) opener, Prithvi Shaw, during their day game at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.

DC was put in to bat first after KKR captain, Shreyas Iyer, won the toss. Rishabh Pant was quite happy with the decision as it was a good surface to bat on and the dew factor won’t play a factor in day games.

David Warner and Shaw began brilliantly, putting 87 runs inside the first eight overs. During the partnership, Shaw was hit hard by a pacy bouncer from Umesh. The ball smashed into the helmet and flew away towards the third man fence.

Meanwhile, Anrich Nortje was dropped from the DC squad after a horrendous return in their previous game. He bowled only 2.3 overs and conceded 35 runs before being barred from bowling due to two beamers.

As for KKR, they stuck with the same team that defeated Mumbai Indians (MI). Pat Cummins, their hero with the bat, will be hoping to contribute with the ball as well this time around.
