Prithvi Shaw has failed miserably in IPL-2023. (IPL photo)
New Delhi: The performance of Delhi Capitals in IPL-2023 was very poor. This team is out of the playoff race this season. No batsman batted for Delhi this season. The team’s regular captain Rishabh Pant was injured on December 30 last year, so he did not play this season. In such a situation, it was expected from the young batsman Prithvi Shaw that he would do something good but this batsman failed completely. The team’s batting coach Shane Watson has also accepted that Delhi suffered losses due to Shaw’s failure.
Shaw is considered a very talented batsman. But this batsman has not yet been seen batting according to his ability. He was continuously failing and hence the team dropped him from the playing eleven. He got a chance once again in the last match against Punjab Kings and in this Shaw scored a half-century but by then it was too late.

Delhi has to play its next match at home against Chennai Super Kings. Before this match, the team’s batting coach Watson admitted that the biggest disappointment for the team this season was Prithvi Shaw’s absence. Watson believed that Shaw is the best batsman and he can destroy any bowling attack. Watson has said that the team management has given him ample opportunities and has taken care that he should play the way he wants to play.
Watson said that the team gave him ample opportunities, knowing that he has not been able to show consistency for the past few years. Watson said that after seeing the kind of batsman Shaw is, it seems that he should dominate in international cricket.
The 💯 must go on 💯

Shaw’s game was like this
Shaw has played seven matches this year and scored just 101 runs. These figures are when Shaw scored an inning of 54 runs in the last match. Had this inning not come, Shaw’s score would not have gone beyond 100. Shaw averaged 14.43 during this period. His strike rate has been 129.49. Last season Shaw scored 283 runs in 10 matches. This season has been very bad for Shaw. This season, he has played the least number of matches so far and has scored less runs.
