IPL 2021: Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw revealed, “why he started worrying about his technique after getting dropped from test side”

Delhi Capitals explosive opener Prithvi Shaw says he had started “worrying” about his technique after being dropped in Australia before roaring back to form in domestic cricket, thanks to a few technical changes he made in his game.

Delhi Capitals explosive opener Prithvi Shaw says he had started “worrying” about his technique after being dropped in Australia before roaring back to form in domestic cricket, thanks to a few technical changes he made in his game.

Shaw, 21, was dropped after his twin failures in the opening Test at Adelaide last December.
However, the Mumbai batsman dominated the Vijay Hazare Trophy like no other in the history of the tournament, amassing a whopping 827 runs in eight matches.

Prior to the Australia tour, Prithvi Shaw’s technical issues were conspicuous in the IPL 2020 as well where he was dismissed 8 times for single-digit scores before eventually being dropped from the Delhi Capitals eleven.

“After getting dropped from the Test side after the first Test in Australia, I started worrying about my technique on why I was getting bowled. Even if it was a minor mistake, I wanted to minimize that. I started working on it there itself,” said Shaw after Delhi Capitals’ (DC) win over Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the IPL 2021.

“I worked on my initial movement – getting more stable and more ready before the bowler has bowled. After returning from Australia, I worked with my coach Prashant Shetty sir and also Pravin Amre sir before going to the Vijay Hazare Trophy, and it worked quite well. I played my natural game in Vijay Hazare Trophy, but I made a small technical change. After that, it’s going well,”.

“After coming from Australia, I remained worried about my batting. I worked hard and rectified things and got runs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. I didn’t get a lot of practice for IPL, the T20 format. But I got good practice sessions with Ricky Ponting sir, Pravin Amre sir, and Prashant Shetty sir”, he added.
