It was a tossed up delivery around off stump, and Prithvi Shaw missed the line completely before it hit the top of the leg stump. It was a rare defensive stroke from Shaw, who was playing aggressively throughout his stay at the crease, hitting seven fours and two sixes. Despite the dismissal, the DC piled up 215/5 at the end of 20 overs, with Warner on 45-ball 61 and Rishabh Pant on 14-ball 27.
