Opener Prithvi Shaw had innings of 16 and 14 against New Zealand in the Wellington Test.
Indian team lost by 10 wickets in this match, next match in Christchurch from 29th February
Dainik BhaskarFeb 26, 2020, 02:30 PM IST Sports Desk. His batting style has come under criticism after Indian opener Prithvi Shaw failed in the Wellington Test against New Zealand. Shaw was dismissed by Trent Boult and Tim Southee. But captain Virat Kohli disagrees. He defends Prithvi Shaw, saying there is nothing wrong with him. He is playing International Bowlers abroad for the first time. Actually, Prithvi Shaw scored 16 and 14 runs in the Wellington Test. The Kiwi team defeated India by 10 wickets in this match.
Kohli said, "I believe that unless (Prithvi Shaw) gets out 8 or 10 times this way, there is no need to worry. I do not think that for the first time a player who is playing outside the home and facing the international level bowlers for the first time, that kind of behavior will not be right with that player. "
Prithvi Shaw has trouble with short ball
Prithvi Shaw is the backlift in the top-order batting order in the current Indian team. Whenever the New Zealand bowlers bowled short in front of him, then he got in trouble. Kiwi bowler Scott Kuglin followed the same strategy in the practice match. After this, Trent Bolt also dismissed Prithvi Shaw in the second innings of the Wellington Test.
Prithvi Shaw knows how to score big
He said, "It is up to him to score runs. He will also find its way. He is a natural stroke player. He also makes runs. It is not that he makes small scores. He knows how to make him score big. This whole matter is only to understand the pace and condition of the wicket. When he clarifies a picture in his mind, it becomes very dangerous. "
