New Delhi. The Delhi Capitals team was shaken by Mark Wood’s bouncer. Wood, who is returning to the IPL after 5 years, showed in his very first over what is going to happen to the Delhi batsmen in the coming times. Wood of Lucknow Super Giants came on the attack after the fourth over. Wood bowled the third ball of the over at a speed of 147kph, on which Prithvi Shaw could not even move and was bowled. He bowled the next ball at the same speed, on which Mitchell Marsh was bowled. Sarfaraz Khan was standing in front of his hat-trick ball.
Wood decided to throw the bouncer, but his decision proved wrong. Sarfaraz ducked. However, after this David Warner took a review to call this ball wide or no ball, because it was the second bouncer of the same over and the third umpire called it a no ball.
