It all started with a big bang and in Ahmedabad, it all started with a shoulder-barge. After Shivam Mavi’s shoulder-barge, Prithvi Shaw got triggered, which instantly turned into an eventful over, with the Delhi opener scoring six boundaries off six deliveries to leave Mavi shell-shocked.
When Kolkata Knight Riders walked back to a total of 154, it looked like perhaps, Kolkata might have just put up an on-par total. Walking into the ground, KKR fielders really looked charged and excited, as Delhi openers - Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan - walked out to open the innings. It was a battle of the former U-19 stars - Shaw and Shivam Mavi - who faced each other on the night.
While Mavi delivered a nimble delivery that went down the leg-side, it looked like there was some purchase for the Uttar Pradesh seamer. However, all hopes crashed down, when the right-hander knocked the ball straight down the ground to kick off the proceedings with the bat. What followed is integral to the story, Mavi shoulder-barged his U-19 skipper, which really triggered an eventful set of things in Ahmedabad.
Taking offense, the right-handed batsman immediately responded with another boundary, drilled towards the cover boundary. And it never stopped from thereon, with the Mumbaikar scoring four more boundaries, to top the over off with six consecutive boundaries, getting 24 runs from the over after Dinesh Karthik seemingly saved four runs off the first delivery of the over, which went way down the leg-side. Shaw triggered, six boundaries followed and that was the end of Mavi!
