Time to blood in Prithvi Shaw

Recommended Posts

I would let the youngster settle in international cricket by playing and focusing on tests first in the Oct '18 to Mar '19 period where we play 7 tests .... he still has a lot of time on his hands .... if he performs well, he would be considered for LOIs once the slots open up (and they will eventually)

He has very loose technique . Look at the gap between bat and pad  any good inswing bowler like broad , philander  Stokes can get him out 9 out of 10 times . But the one technical deficiency which is more cause of concern is that the  way he play on leg side  he never lean towards the ball just throw his hand at staying on  backfoot  many bowler will exploit this fault in future but he has age on his side so hope he correct that

I like him and have been an admirer for long -but these new players grow progressively bad eventually because the more intelligent sides do homework a lot on these new players while they fail to grow as a player and eventually becomes shitty.
I hope Prithvi or Pant doesn't end up as that Clown Rahul

Our middle order of rayadu, Karthik, and dhoni are set. There is no space. Shaw will have to wait until these 3 fail in the World Cup. Tough luck but our middle order is the best in the world with great winning mentality.

 

other than dhoni , i dont think rayudu and dk will score long enough to seal their place ..

most probably dk will be kicked out .. have no idea about rauddu though

Stop being ridiculous. He hasnt won anything. He proved to be succumb under pressure when he batted poorly and dropped easy catches in Delhi final game in IPL

 

This is one game against the worst test side. He hasnt shown winning mentality or adaptability to replace Rayudu, DHoni or Jadhav


He can replace Rohit at openeing though

Under him we won the Under 19 WC when he lead the team which is greater than Ipl.

Are we really going to pretend that t20 franchise game = test for country? And that too, one off T20 game which majority of us don't even remember.

If anything his technique is the closest i have seen to Tendulkar's. He meets the ball right under his eye. Second thing he has improved his late adjustments a lot. He is able to check at the last second instead of being stuck like Pujara.

Tendulkar gave an interview and said, 10 year back, when  he saw Shaw bat. He opined this kid will play for India. Missed his inning yesterday. Any links/highlights please?

Bcci.tv has about 4 minutes highlights and 3 minutes for Pant. This site has been great the past few years.

Even Kohli wasn't in amazing form for a few years in the IPL even while he was already proving to be one of the best ODI batsmen in the world.

anyone got any high quality videos of him batting? I haven't seen him face a single ball yet this series. 

 

re sehwag comparions. i do wonder if anyone can ever replicate that aura again. what was audacious in his time is commonplace today.

Not going to happen. Rohit cannot play any other position and it will expose the fraud in him. BML won't let that happen. He is best at top against mediocre attacks on flat pattas

Rohit has himself said before that he prefers to play in the middle order rather than opening the batting. He was playing at No. 4 for Mumbai Indians even while opening for India.

Those days are gone. He failed terribly in IPL playing in the middle order. 

But he has the winning mentality knows how to win games as captain respect has increased for him he can definitely bat at 4 replacing Kedar or Rayudu

The thing is he's unlikely to do that in Team India as his place is in jeopardy and he needs to make some runs - especially given the Power struggle he's apparently in if you believe yellow page journalism

India vs West Indies: An opening for Prithvi Shaw in ODI XI?

The discussions are still on about the possibility of giving Prithvi Shaw a game, but it won’t be a surprise if he does get to make his debut in this series.
