Delhi Capital have started their IPL 2020 campaign, having won their opening two matches against Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings. On Friday, Delhi Capital openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan added 94 runs for the first wicket within 11 overs. Shaw was the top scorer scoring 64 runs off 43 balls in the match, while Dhawan played the anchor as he scored 35 off 27 balls as the Delhi Capitals posted 175/3 in 20 overs. Apart from his batting, Dhawan also made headlines for his cool glasses, which he wore while fielding. As Dhawan landed on the field, on-air commentator Kevin Pietersen was the first to notice his glasses and was completely mesmerized by them.
The official Twitter handle of the Indian Premier League (IPL) shared a video where Pietersen can be heard repeatedly telling his fellow commentators that he would love to lay his hands on one of them. “Look at them … I want them … I really want them,” Peterson said in the video.
Sharing the video, IPL tweeted: “Hey @ SDhawan25 where did you get those uber cool glasses? @ KP24 wanna know”.

Talking about the match, the inaugural stand between Shaw and Dhawan laid the foundation for a big total. Chasing 176 to win, CSK got off to a poor start as they lost both of their openers inside the powerplay. Faf du Plessis and Kedar Jadhav tried to rebuild, but succumbed to the increasingly necessary run-rate.
Kagiso Rabada and Enrique Narje were the bowlers’ choice for the Delhi Capitals as they bowled financially and were all out for five. Delhi registered their second win by winning the match by 44 runs.
With this win, Delhi topped the IPL points table with four points from two matches. Their next match will be at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on September 29 in Sunrisers Hyderabad.
