At a time when Delhi Capitals would have wanted all their star players to be fit and available, they have suffered a big injury blow. Their star opener Prithvi Shaw has been ruled out of the remainder of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2022). The news has been confirmed by none other than Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting. The right-handed batsman has missed Delhi Capitals’ last three matches and was admitted to a hospital on Sunday due to high fever.

With the franchise not giving any clear update on Shaw, there was little clarity on his health and availability for the tournament. Speaking at the toss on Wednesday (May 11), Delhi captain Rishabh Pant also failed to provide a clear update. The wicketkeeper-batsman was not sure of Shaw’s health and later revealed in the post-match presentation that his teammate could be suffering from typhoid.

“We miss him but we can’t control that. He has typhoid or something, like that is what the doctor told me,” Pant said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

However, Ponting has confirmed that Shaw’s campaign in the ongoing tournament has come to an end. Just a couple of days ago, Shaw had put up a story on his Instagram handle, giving an update on his health. In the picture, he was on a hospital bed and revealed that he was recovering well.

However, it looks like he would not be able to recover in time to play for Delhi again in IPL 2022. Ponting has pretty much confirmed that the young opener would not take any further part in the competition. Ponting was talking to the commentators during the game against Rajasthan Royals when he confirmed the news about Shaw.

Delhi Capitals keep playoff hopes alive:

Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals have kept their playoff hopes alive with a thumping win over Rajasthan Royals. After restricting the Royals to 160, Delhi chased down the total in 18.1 overs by losing just two wickets. Shaun Marsh (89) and David Warner (52*) were the star with the bat for Delhi. The duo shared a decisive 144-run stand for the second wicket. Delhi are currently at the fifth spot in the points table with 6 wins from 12 games.
