There was a lot of positivity in Delhi’s capitals this season. The Indian Premier League perennial underperformers rebooted their franchise last year and started exceeding expectations. They are one of the most consistent teams in the IPL for the last two seasons. In 2020, DC reached the final of the tournament but lost to the five-time champions Mumbai Indians. A lot of players performed brilliantly, while some performed brilliantly.
Prithvi Shaw is the young opener in the category of underperformers. The 21-year-old started the season on a positive note as he scored fifty against Kolkata Knight Riders, while scoring 42 against RCB in the next match. But it did not go down as planned for the batsman as he failed to go to the following matches.
He was criticized for losing his wickets early and putting pressure on other batsmen. He finished the season with just 228 runs which came at an average of 17.53.
Now with the big auction, Shaw may lose his place in the team. Former Indian opener Akash Chopra was also not happy with Shaw’s batting when chips were down as he criticized him for his attitude.
“Prithvi Shaw started well, he was playing good shots and scoring runs but after that, it just kept falling and then couldn’t come back which is not a good thing. He is young, but an Indian player and you expect more continuity from him, ”Chopra said in a video on his YouTube channel.
He said, “It is possible that the strike rate is one day lower but here it seemed that his attitude was ‘my way or highway’. He would collide and even if he gets out, it doesn’t matter and That he won’t have a separate gear even after falling from him. “
He said, “Because this is a problem that was a little difficult because it was a very important year because it will determine who will keep the Delhi capitals and let them go.”
Shaw was eliminated by the team management for knockout matches against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians as DC opted to promote Marcus Stoinis instead.
