Delhi Daredevils locked horns with Chennai Super Kings at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Tuesday. While both teams were trying to keep their winning run intact and watch the intense competition between two Indian stumpers MS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant, there was another eminent personality who managed to grab the eyeballs. He was none other than Olympian swimmer Michael Phelps.
Phelps was seen enjoying the clash between the north and south teams and a picture of his was posted on Twitter.
Twitterati wasted no time in reacting to the Olympic legend's presence at Kotla.
Phelps has competed in five Olympic games (2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016). He has won 28 Olympic medals, 23 of which are gold medals which makes him the most successful and the most successful Olympian of all time. At the same time, he also holds the all-time records for Olympic gold medals, Olympic gold medals in individual events and Olympic medals in individual events.
Delhi won the toss after electing to bat first. Shikhar Dhawan's crucial knock of a 47-ball 51 ensured that the Capitals got to 147/6 in their 20 overs as Delhi kept losing wickets.
