RR vs DD Prithvi Shaw asked to pick between Sourav Ganguly or Ricky Ponting, answer floors commentators
RR vs dd Prithvi shaw: Youngster Prithi Shaw is playing under the coaching of the legendary cricketers Sourav Ganguly and Ricky Ponting in Delhi Capitals. Early on during the Rajasthan innings, Shaw – who was wired in – was asked by commentators Simon Doull and Murali Karthik whom he has been learning more during DC training sessions.
Delhi Capitals’ opener Prithvi Shaw sidestepped a ‘tough’ question by commentators during his team’s Indian Premier League contest against Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Monday.
Despite playing in all the editions, Delhi is yet to win an IPL trophy. However, they are in the right direction so far to aim the trophy as they are at the top of the points table with 14 points.
Shaw – clearly caught off guard by this question – had an ace up his sleeve as he was heard saying: ‘I can’t hear you. There seems to be some problem with the connection.”
And it’s needless to say that the contribution of Ponting and Ganguly behind it is huge. The players have delivered under the coaching of the legendary duo and the results prove it all.
Shaw’s tactics to avoid answering this awkward question floored the commentators as they bust our laughing. The young India cricketer also said that he is trying to learn as much as possible from the duo as they have vast experience and knowledge of the game.
Delhi won their seventh game tonight against Rajasthan Royals in match number 40 after Rishabh Pant’s brutal knock made the chase away too easy for the side. Earlier, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan also gave Delhi a superb start before handing over to Pant to do the destruction later.
Meanwhile, the match saw a hilarious moment when young Prithvi was on the mic and was asked a few questions by the commentators.
However, after a couple of seconds, he gave an answer, although a diplomatic one. He said both of them and Ganguly was laughing at the dugout after hearing the answer.
