New Delhi. In IPL 2021, the first qualifier match was played between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals (CSK vs DC) on Sunday. Due to the stormy batting of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) in the last over, Chennai Super Kings won the match by 4 wickets. With this win, CSK became the first team to reach the finals. Dhoni scored 18 runs in 6 balls. There was one more special thing in this match. For the first time, more than 100 cameras were installed in the stadium to give the spectators a 360-degree view of every corner of the field and every shot. All these cameras were supposed to do 4k recording (IPL 360 Degree Vision cameras). With their help, the audience got a chance to watch cricket in a new color.
In this match between Delhi and Chennai, Prithvi Shaw appeared in tremendous form. He played an innings of 60 runs. During this, 7 fours and 3 sixes were hit. In the middle of the match, Shaw’s sixes were shown through 360 degree vision. This was the first time in the history of cricket that the spectators got a chance to see the shot from every angle.
