Mohammed Shami took four wickets in the first Powerplay against Delhi Capitals with a sensational spell of swing bowling in the IPL.

Delhi Capitals elected to bat and opener Phil Salt was dismissed for a golden duck off the first delivery from Shami.

This season, Salt is the third batsman to be dismissed by the first ball of an IPL game, joining Prabhsimran Singh and Virat Kohli.

Shami also dismissed Rilee Rossouw (8), Manish Pandey (1), and Priyam Garg (10), recording his best-ever IPL figures of 4/11 in 4 overs.

DC set an unwanted milestone by losing five wickets inside Powerplay, including captain David Warner for 2 in a run-out snafu.

Shami has taken the most Powerplay wickets this season with 12, followed by Mohammed Siraj (eight), Trent Boult (seven), and Arshdeep Singh (six).

The IPL 2023 campaign of Delhi Capitals is already in the doldrums with poor performances and this loss adding to their woes.

The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad witnessed an impressive display of swing bowling from Shami, earning him plaudits from cricket fans and experts.
