Prithvi Shaw surely grabbed the limelight in the match between the Delhi Capitals (DC) and the Punjab Kings (PBKS) on 2nd May 2021. The right-hander first scored a resplendent 39 off just 22 deliveries at the top of the order.
There was another eventful moment in his innings where Shaw got hit on his crotch and even checked into his underpants. And now, another moment has grabbed the attention involving Prithvi Shaw. Off the 5th ball of the 2nd over of the Punjab Kings (PBKS) innings, Mayank Agarwal nudged a delivery bowled by Marcius Stoinis towards deep square leg.
And, Shaw picked up the ball and threw it in a wayward manner, above the head of the Delhi Capitals’ wicket-keeper, Rishabh Pant. Pant seemed to be frightened by the throw from Shaw and took both his hands over his head to protect himself from the wild throw from Shaw.
