Shaw, Prithvi I can’t just say I’m going to bat and then put my feet up in the locker room—bad that’s for a guy his age. Vijay Shastri

Shaw, Prithvi I can't just say I'm going to bat and then put my feet up in the locker room—bad that's for a guy his age. Vijay Shastri

The young cricketer Prithvi Shaw received a call-up for the national T20I team against New Zealand as a result of his outstanding play in domestic cricket last season. Because of this, one would have anticipated that he would perform to the best of his ability throughout the current IPL 2023 season, but so far, that hasn’t been the case. Ravi Shastri, a former cricketer for India, was astonished to learn that the Delhi franchise is utilizing the opener as an Impact Player.

The 60-year-old eventually requested Shaw to be involved and not simply come out to bat when necessary since he thought it was not a good indicator for a rookie cricketer. Although Shastri hopes for better performance from the 23-year-old, things do not currently seem promising for him.

“I believe that a player of his caliber and age needs to be involved in the action constantly. He shouldn’t remark, “I’m glad to be an Imapct Player,” but rather, “I want to.” It won’t help, and it’s not a good sign. He is young, after all. You want him to be involved in everything, to contribute with a catch or via fielding, and to develop positive habits there rather than the bad habit of merely batting and then kicking his feet up in the locker room. According to Hindustan Times, Shastri said before Delhi’s game against Mumbai: “It is not good for a person of his age.

In the IPL 2023, Delhi lost their fourth straight game.
Shaw got off to a good start against the Mumbai Indians, scoring 15 runs off just 10 deliveries, but he once more failed to capitalize on his start. Nevertheless, David Warner and Axar Patel’s crucial knocks enabled the team to record 172 runs on the board while Delhi’s middle order once again fell short.

Rohit Sharma, MI’s captain, gave the team a wonderful start while chasing, but with a few of fast wickets, the match’s dynamic completely altered. Nonetheless, Tim David and Cameron Green were able to maintain composure under pressure and assisted MI in defeating DC by six wickets. The five-time champions are now ranked seventh in the IPL Points table as a result of this.
