Ravi Shastri on Prithvi Shaw’s poor form and on being impact player

Prithvi Shaw - Delhi Capitals

Prithvi Shaw scored only 35 runs in four matches in the Indian Premier League. Ravi Shastri, the former Indian Coach shares words on Prithvi Shaw. He was seen in great form in the last domestic season. It was the reason for him to make a comeback in the Indian T20i squad. However, he did not get a chance to be in the playing 11. But so far in the IPL, he has not scored as expected from him. In the absence of their captain Pant, he has to take responsibility as an Indian player.

Ravi Shastri on Prithvi Shaw

“I think a player of his quality and age, he wants to be in the thick of things all the time. He should want to and not say I’m happy to be an Impact Player. It’s not a good sign and it won’t help. I mean he is young. You want him to be part of everything, to be in the mix and contribute with a catch to through fielding, get into good habits there rather than being in the habit of – I’m only going to bat and then feet up in the dressing room. That is not good for a guy at his age,”

Delhi has lost all four matches they played in the season. The openers Prithvi Shaw and Warner are not giving the start for the team. Shaw gets out trying to hit big and Warner does not hit at all. Warner plays at a poor strike rate. Many fans took a dig at Warner saying that he is preparing for the ODI world Cup which is going to happen in India this year.
