Prithvi Shaw is Dropped from the IPL

216Views 2Likes

Prithvi Shaw, the Delhi Capitals player, has been having a tough time lately. His poor performance in IPL 2023 has resulted in his exclusion from the team. Shaw, who is considered a promising player, has only scored 47 runs in six matches. His batting flaws have been exposed against quality bowling, and he has failed to capitalize on the starts that he has got.

The team management has been patient with Shaw for six matches, but they have now decided to drop him from the team. The idea is to give him a break from playing XI so that he can work on his game and regain his confidence. This is a tough call, but the management believes it is the right decision to help Shaw improve his game.

DC captain David Warner confirmed the news in a post-toss interview, where he also mentioned that Mitchell Marsh has left the team to get married. Powell will replace Marsh in the DC lineup, while Lalit Yadav has come in for Sarfraz Khan

Opinions on the Drop

Simon Doull, a former New Zealand cricketer, and commentator, however, criticized Shaw for his lack of effort and fitness and expressed no surprise at his dismissal. Doull cited an incident in DC’s match against RCB last week where Shaw denied a single to captain David Warner, despite being lazy in his running between the wickets. He believes that these little things in the game matter and can come back to haunt players. Doull also feels that Shaw has not adjusted his game and is paying the price for it.

On the other hand, DC skipper Warner has full confidence that Shaw will be working to get back into the team. He believes that Shaw needs to understand where he is at in his game and work on his fitness and scoring to prove himself again. Warner has pointed to Shaw’s record-breaking triple century in the Ranji Trophy and his success in the domestic season across formats to show that Shaw is hungry and determined to get back into the team.

What Happened in the Match

Meanwhile, in the match itself, Sunrisers Hyderabad fell to a third straight defeat, losing to Delhi Capitals by seven runs. Washington Sundar’s all-around effort went in vain as SRH struggled to chase a below-par total of 144/9 set by the Capitals.

As a result, Delhi Capitals have managed to secure their second victory of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Despite contributions from Manish Pandey and Axar Patel, Delhi failed to set an imposing total and were restricted to 144-9, thanks to Washington Sundar’s three-wicket haul. Sunrisers were looking good to win, but they lost four wickets for 16 runs and were ultimately restricted to 137-8.

Mukesh Kumar’s death bowling was crucial in Delhi’s victory as he didn’t allow a single boundary in the final six balls, frustrating the Sunrisers. Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled brilliantly for the Sunrisers, conceding just 11 runs and taking no wickets in his four overs, the most by any bowler this season.

DC’s decision to drop Shaw was seen as a brave one, but it remains to be seen if the team can bounce back from their poor start to the season. With Warner’s leadership and Shaw’s determination to get back into the team, DC fans will be hoping for a better performance in the coming matches.
