The Indian Premier League has been a perfect platform for young players to showcase their talent and rub shoulders with experienced players. The learning from the tournament is such that when Indian players have represented the national team after a terrific season, they have done without any pressure as they already have much experience against quality bowlers. The classical example this year has been the debut of Suryamumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan who hit their fifty in the debut T20I match against England. In this article, we talk about another young player Prithvi Shaw.
The Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw who had an average IPL 2020 and disastrous Australia test series was dropped from the Indian side after continuos failures. After having special training sessions with former cricketer and Delhi Capitals batting coach for 1 week, he made a smashing comeback in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021 and emerged as the leading run-scorer of the tournament. Before this match, he had scored 256 runs in 7 matches at an average of 42.66. In the match against KKR, he gave a glorious start to the team by scoring 6 fours off Shivam Mavi’s over. The bowler was shell-shocked by the timing and placement of the batsmen.
