Shreyas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw seemed to have changed the fortunes of Delhi Daredevils over the period of 7 days after a close loss to Royals, followed by a romping victory against two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders. Daredevils beat KKR by 55 runs and the chief architects of the win were newly-appointed captain Shreyas Iyer, who hit a marvellous 94 and young Prithvi Shaw, who became the youngest player to score a fifty in IPL history with his 62. (Shaw is 18 years and 169 days old)
So how were the young Turks celebrating the win? The two came to together for a rap session and video of them lipsyncing to it has gone viral.
Here is the much-talked-about video:
Meanwhile, the win against Kolkata Knight Riders keeps their hopes of making it to the last four alive. They were at the bottom of the points table, but a change of captain seems to have worked wonders for Delhi Daredevils. Daredevils are now in the seventh spot with 2 wins in seven games.
With the magic figure usually 8, DD need to win six of their next seven games to make the all-important cut. But it seems the win against a formidable KKR has set the ball rolling for DD and it is up to them to keep the momentum going deep into the tournament.
