Delhi Capitals kickstarted their IPL 2020 journey with a bang as they defeated Kings XI Punjab in a super-over nail-biting thriller. Both the teams were on the level as the match came towards an end of regular ones. Kagiso Rabada bowled a fantastic super over and gave away only 2 runs, picking a couple of wickets. All thanks to the brilliant performance by Rabada Delhi Capitals was able to beat KXIP.
Apart from Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin was on fire during his spell in the game against KXIP. However, Ashwin was badly injured in his first over itself after picking up a couple of wickets in the same over itself.
In the very first ball of his over, R Ashwin dismissed Karun Nair. Three balls later, Ashwin sent back the dangerous Nicholas Pooran for a duck. In the very next ball, he suffered a very bad injury and seemed to have dislocated his shoulder as he made a dive to try and save the shot played by Glenn Maxwell.
Ashwin was seen grimacing in pain while holding his left shoulder before walking off the field. Later, Ashwin was seen with a sling on his hand.
But thankfully, in the post-match presentation, R Ashwin appeared to take an award and it came out as a sigh of relief for the fans as he was seen without a sling in his hand.
