Prithvi Shaw released from the hospital after being treated for typhoid.
The Delhi Capitals announce on Sunday that opener Prithvi Shaw released from the hospital after being treated for typhoid. Earlier this month, the 22-year-old was admitted to the hospital with a high fever. “Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw has been released from the hospital where he was being treated for typhoid,” the team announced in a statement.
The Capitals’ medical staff is keeping an eye on the opener.
“Shaw has returned to the team hotel, where he is currently recuperating while being monitored by the DC medical team,” the statement continued.
Shaw last played against the Lucknow Super Giants on May 1. He has missed the Capitals’ last three games since then.
His return will provide a significant boost to the team. Shaw posted an Instagram message from his hospital bed, saying he hopes to return soon.
The team has struggled to find a capable replacement to partner the in-form David Warner in his absence. Both Mandeep Singh and Srikar Bharat have faded from prominence.
Shaw has scored 259 runs at an average of 28.77 and a strike rate of 160 in nine games this season in the IPL.
The Capitals currently have 12 points from 12 games and must win their final two games to qualify for the playoffs.
On Monday, they will face the Punjab Kings.
