Delhi Capitals (DC) batsman Shikhar Dhawan's first Indian Premier League (IPL) match for his home team lasted just two deliveries as a horror mix-up with fellow opener Prithvi ended up in his run-out.
Put into bat by Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) captain KL Rahul at Dubai on Sunday, DC lost the experienced Indian opener in the second over, after facing only two balls, for naught.
Dhawan seemed to nick a bouncer off Mohammad Shami, but Rahul spilled the 'catch' behind the wicket, only to result in the mix-up. Watch the dismissal here:
Dhawan joined DC for the 2020 season after playing for SunRisers Hyderabad for years.
Delhi were struggling at 49/3 in ten overs.
