dnt think its ego, players know what works for them. Sometimes taking time off is the best thing. IF he was lazy he wudnt wanna face more balls when he is in form. 

Gavaskar n tendulkar skipped nets a lot in latter part of their career. At times ppl over rate practice,its better to take time off sometimes . 

 

Sehwag always said he knew he only needs to face certain number of balls in nets but someone like gambhir needed 10 times more

Gavaskar ,Tendulkar and Sehwag probably did it when they had made it and knew what worked for them. 

It is too early for Shaw .

Besides how is the coach supposed to work on someone's shortcomings if he won't put in the effort.

Never ever good for a coach or a selector to say such things publicly about a young player. How is this going to help Shaw? Unless the idea here to motivate him by asking ng hai m to prove the coach wrong. Again, that could either ways if a player isn't mentally as strong as say someone like Pant.

 

Having said that Punter is one guy who can really help Shaw get back on track and set him up for international success for a decade or more. He was a complete j**k as an individual, but achieved legendary status through sheer grit, determination and disciplined hard work, wasn't the most naturally gifted player. If he could pass on even a bit of those qualities, especially discipline, to Shaw, all the potential will start getting converted into consistent performances.

didnt amre work on it, every player cant follow same method. Technical issues creep generally becoz of bad habbits for some it works out with extra practice and for some it works out by taking mind off. Every player has to be treated differently thats what man management is. Problem was if he didnt work had all any time

A 21 year old has absolutely no way to decide what works for him. Players grow and change and find new things. There is no way a 21 year old player can already decide what works for him

 

In the end basics are important. What method are you even talking about when Shaw didn't even take the nets so absolutely no method was even tried

Every player knows what works for him at international level . 

Ull hear every cricketer saying take a bit of time off when form isnt good coz u keep repeating bad habbits in nets making it worse . Working in nets in a middle of a tournament is far different then going away from team and working on basics

WTh!!!!!What ego!

How does someone who has not achieved anything yet have the guts to not listen to his coach....that too when he was doing so bad with the bat?

 

 

Semantic gap.

 

This is the media sensationalizing the issue. Most probably, Shaw doesn't understand what Ponting is saying.

Many a times, during the game when they go to Ponting for a sound byte, I don't understand anything.

 

The language sounds familiar but its all gargle punctuated by the occasional 'mayte'.

Ricky Ponting's biggest talent lies in the gentle art of seeking favours under the guise of conferring them.

 

He talked his way into a coaching contract and made it seem like we needed him.

And now he's calling out our youngsters for non issues like being unfit and skipping training. :mad:

what works for you should be handled in private. When you are part of a professional set up, you have a hierarchy and rules to follow, you have to follow them.

 

If Ponting  as a coach wanted to see his game in the nets and find flaws, he should have obeyed him.  
 

So a player can refuse things to his captain,coach,management etc  on the pretext  that  it doesn’t works for him ?

 

Wonder if this is the attitude Shaw has towards Ponting, I wonder how he feels about taking tips from Rathour.

I think that loss of form in the IPL messed up Shaw mentally. And, when he was in that slump, he was in no mood to practice. Think Ponting should have handled that privately and helped give the guy the tools necessary to handle failure, mentally. My guess is Shaw will have learned from this. He has taken the first step with fighting his way back by scoring in domestic tournaments. I really hope he does well this IPL.
