In the first over of Delhi Capitals innings, Trent Boult drew the first blood in Prithvi Shaw. After bowling short of a length delivery in the first two balls, Boult striked in his third delivery to dismiss the Impact player of DC. What was brilliant was RR skipper Sanju Samson pulling off an incredible catch behind the wickets.
As Prithvi got an edge, Sanju dived full-length towards his right to complete a one-handed catch, dismissing the DC opener for a duck.
