No love lost between Shaw and Mavi
As Delhi went on to win the match on the back of a blistering 82-run knock from Shaw, the 20-year-old was seen apologizing to Mavi who was his teammate during India’s 2018 World Cup winning campaign. It was a very funny sequence of events as Shaw tried to give a warm hug to Mavi. Meanwhile, the KKR bowler tried to unleash his frustration in a funny way as he tried to pinch Shaw, who looked in some pain for a while. In short, it was an extremely heartwarming moment shared between the two youngsters who proved that there was certainly no love lost between the two friends despite of what happened on the field.
