WATCH : Jake Fraser-McGurk announcing himself to Delhi crowd with 30-run-over


Forced to bat first by Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant after losing the toss, Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma forged a formidable partnership, amassing 125 runs in the powerplay.

Although Sharma narrowly missed out on a half-century by just four runs, Head’s explosive innings of 89 off 32 balls laid the groundwork, complemented by Shahbaz Ahmed’s fifty, propelling SRH to a commanding total of 266/7 in their allotted 20 overs.

In reply, the Capitals aimed for a similar aggressive start, but despite losing early wickets, the momentum persisted with Fraser-McGurk leading the charge.

In the third over, Fraser-McGurk unleashed a flurry of boundaries, capitalizing on a fuller delivery outside the off stump from Sundar, lofting it effortlessly over long-on for a six.

He followed it up with a boundary through cover and then capitalized on Sundar’s shorter length, dispatching the ball over long-off with a powerful swing akin to a baseball hit, concluding the over with consecutive sixes.

Fraser-McGurk’s explosive over, which yielded 30 runs, kept the Capitals in contention, causing a frenzy on Twitter as fans marveled at his stunning display.
