A video has surfaced online wherein Delhi Capitals’ young batsman, Prithvi Shaw can be seen looking beyond his underpants on the field and smiling after being hit on the crotch by Punjab Kings’ pacer, Riley Meredith. Delhi Capitals took on Punjab Kings in match 29 of IPL 2021 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday.
Having won the toss, Rishabh Pant, the DC skipper, elected to bowl first. Punjab were handed a massive blow as their skipper, KL Rahul was diagnosed with acute appendicitis ahead of the game and will now have to undergo surgery. Mayank Agarwal took over the captaincy responsibilities in Rahul’s absence and he led from the front by being not out on 99 runs at the end of the first innings, carrying Punjab to a total of 166 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in their 20 overs.

As Delhi Capitals walked into bat for the chase, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan once again gave a fiery start to the Delhi-based franchise as both these batsmen smashed the Punjab bowlers all over the park and stitched together a partnership of 63 runs for the first wicket. However, an interesting incident took place in the 2nd innings as Riley Meredith hit Prithvi Shaw on the crotch on the final delivery of the 3rd over.
Shaw was seen in agonizing pain right after being hit as he fell to the ground and laid there for a couple of minutes before the DC physio ran onto the ground. However, the relieving news for DC was that Shaw recovered quickly. Now, a video has surfaced online wherein Prithvi Shaw can be seen checking beneath his underpants and smiling after being hit by the ball of Meredith.
