Opener for the capitals of Delhi Prithvi Shaw played a flawless knock of 82 running 45 balls on Thursday night and was in his class. The young batsman who had a great domestic season before IPL 2021 relied more on time than power to produce 11 fours and three sixes against KKR in Delhi’s seven-wicket victory.
At the post-match presentation ceremony, Harsha Bogle, while praising Shaw for his inning, compared his beating style to former Indian opener Virender Sehvag and faked it if he took lessons from the 2011 World Cup winner.
In response, Shaw said, “No, we haven’t talked (to Sehwag) yet, but if I had the chance, I’d like to, because he’s the one who likes to score the first ball.”
The player then continued to credit his father for his newfound form after the decline in Australia and during the last IPL; adding that the fall is a learning curve for him.
“My father supported me very well. After I came back from Australia, I was not happy with myself. My father just asked me to play my natural game. All these words set me a goal and I worked hard. In cricket the graphics will work. up and down, many failures will come to me, “he said.
