Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals have locked horns with each other for the Qualifier one of the Indian Premier League. The contest between the table toppers was a highly anticipated one. However, something that has fascinated the cricket on-lookers whilst the ongoing match is the 360° vision that they got to witness.

In the match between CSK and DC, Prithvi Shaw has looked pretty dominating with the bat. His innings of 60 runs included as many as seven fours and three sixes. Thus, Shaw’s sixes were shown through a 360-degree vision amidst the ongoing match. This is the first time in the history of the sport that the cricketing fraternity got to witness the 360° vision of action.

Delhi Capitals post a challenging total for CSK

After having won the toss, MS Dhoni decided to bowl first at the Dubai International stadium. Delhi got to a steady start as Prithvi Shaw played a belligerent knock of 60 runs. Shikhar Dhawan had also just started to take on the CSK bowlers, wherein Josh Hazlewood entered the scene and sent the southpaw back to the pavilion.

Shreyas Iyer too couldn’t add much with the willow as he departed with just one run to his account. Hazlewood yet again was in the action wherein he bowled a full-length delivery which caught the leading edge and Ruturaj Gaikwad completed a good catch. Axar Patel was promoted up the order to add some quick runs but after he lost his wicket to Moeen Ali, skipper Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer took the mantle for the team.

Pant stood firm on one side and hit some fearless shots to score 43 runs off just 29 deliveries. His innings included two fours and as many sixes. Hetmyer assisted him well from the other side, adding 37 runs to the team’s account. DC thus posted the target of 165 for CSK. And the 360 degree vision just enhanced the viewing experience of the fans watching the big hits from Hetmyer and Pant.
