Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant said on Wednesday that his opener Prithvi Shaw could be suffering from typhus. After the Capitals’ eight-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals, who kept their hopes alive in their IPL play-offs, Pant said they missed Shaw at the top of the table. “We miss him, but we can not control it. He has typhus or something like that the doctor told me,” Pant said at the presentation ceremony after the game.
Shaw was admitted to a hospital Sunday due to high fever. He himself shared an Instagram post from his hospital bed and said he is hopeful of coming back soon. Srikar Bharat, who played in place of Shaw, could not open his account.
Commenting on the crucial victory, Pant, who chose to hit the field after winning the toss, said: “It was close to a perfect match, because I believe there is always room for improvement. On these types of wickets where there is little turn, you can go whatever it is.
“I’m glad we bowled first. I thought 140-160 was a good score and said so at the draw. And we got there. Destiny is always on your hands, you can look to give 100 percent. The fielding could have been better, but it was close to a perfect match. ” RR captain Sanju Samson said his team missed a few runs short of what would be a challenging target.
“Very disappointing night. We were few runs short, and few wickets short in the middle. While we were batting, the wicket was two speeds. We were 15-20 runs short. While we were bowling second, we had some catches. “Really disappointed, but we would like to come back in the next game,” said Samson.
