Shaw formed half of Delhi’s destructive opening combination alongside Australian David Warner. The duo had the most destructive strike-rates in the powerplay, setting up Delhi’s tempo for the rest of the innings, on which the likes of Rishabh Pant and Rovman Powell capitalised.
While Shaw’s availability for the next games is not known, but it seems like he could come back into the playing XI if Delhi can manage to get into the playoffs stage of the tournament. Delhi still have to win their last two games in the competition if they wish to enter the top four in the league table.
