Delhi Capitals stars Sam Billings and Prithvi Shaw are in England for the ongoing Test series for their national teams, but their camaraderie in the IPL was shown by their franchise in a fun BTS video on Instagram.
The clip shows Billings playing a series of shots in front of the camera, including Shaw’s straight drive mimicking the England wicketkeeper. “Prithvi Shaw,” Billings said, playing the trick.
The message was captioned:
“@sambillings” has reach on and off the pitch ?? PS How would you rate that @prithvishaw impression? ? #YehHaiNayiDilli #IPL2021.”

Rishabh Pant likely to continue as DC skipper for IPL 2021
Explosive wicketkeeper batter Rishabh Pant is likely to remain the Delhi Capitals (DC) captain for Shreyas Iyer for the remainder of IPL 2021.
The 23-year-old led Delhi into the first half of the IPL in India after Iyer was ruled out due to a shoulder injury sustained during the limited-overs series against England.
Now that Iyer is fit, fans are wondering if he will lead the side or if Pant will continue as DC captain. According to sources, Pant will also captain the franchise in the UAE leg of IPL 2021. A source told Sportskeeda:
“While the great news is that Shreyas Iyer is fit and ready to return to action, it is clear that DC management wants to give him more time to recover. As a result, Pant will continue as captain, but only for the second half of IPL 2021.”
Under his captaincy, DC finished the Indian leg of IPL 2021 as table toppers, winning six of their eight matches. The players, except those on international duty, reached the UAE a few days ago and have started training after completing their quarantine.
