For Delhi Capitals’ opening batsman Prithvi Shaw, it has been a struggling season. Shaw had performed some good knocks in the beginning of the event, however as IPL 2020 has progressed, he has appeared fairly odd and has struggled to get runs on the board. Shaw was changed by Ajinkya Rahane owing to his poor form, however Rahane, too, appeared out of contact, and Shaw returned to play for DC in anticipation of Mumbai Indians on Saturday.

Shaw had no change his form and fortunes although as he nicked one to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock in Trent Boult’s over and was dismissed after scoring simply 10 runs in 11 balls. (IPL 2020 Full Coverage)

DC might just muster a complete of 110//9 in 20 overs which was simply chased down by the defending champions Mumbai Indians in 14.2 overs with 9 wickets in hand. After the match, former India cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar gave an recommendation to Shaw.

“Dear Prithvi Shaw, try & not attempt impossible shots, simply because they are impossible to pull off. Keep Virender Sehwag as your role model, see how he only stuck to shots he had the ability/confidence to pull off,” Manjrekar wrote on Twitter.


Dear Prithvi Shaw, attempt & not try unattainable shots, just because they’re unattainable to drag off. Keep Virender Sehwag as your function model, see how he just caught to shots he had the power/confidence to drag off.
