Jaipur: Delhi Capitals opener Shaw believes his team-mate Rishabh Pant is the biggest finisher in T20 cricket at the moment. Delhi Capitals managed to get a convincing six-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals a day before to go to the top of the points table in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).
Chasing 192, Pant played a splendid knock of 78 runs off 36 balls (4×6, 6×4) and guided Delhi to its seventh victory with four balls to spare at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium.
“Rishabh Pant is the biggest finisher of the game in T20s right now, especially for our team,” said Shaw at the post-match press conference.
The right-handed batsman said his team was confident of chasing down the total.”Definitely, there was a plan. We knew in the powerplay there will be at least one spinner bowling and Shikhar bhai was batting so well in the powerplay, he was in a good flow. Then Jofra Archer, we knew he depends more on short balls and bouncers, so we were prepared,” said Shaw.
