Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting said that Prithvi Shaw has the potential to become a superstar player. However, he needs to improve his training style. He said that he felt that Shaw would have worked on it after the IPL was over when he was the top scorer in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Delhi Capitals will benefit from this. He revealed that Shaw did not practice after not scoring runs last season, refusing to train despite his saying. However, when he scored in the match, he was batting heavily on the nets.
Ponting said, “Last season, Prithvi adopted a different theory for training. When he could not score runs in the match, he did not train at the nets after that. At the same time, when he scored runs, he always liked batting on the nets. I did not agree with his theory. He scored less than 10 runs in four or five matches and I told him that he should bat on the nets, to know what was wrong. But he refused to practice. He did not work to rectify the mistake. ‘
He further said that I think now there are changes. I trust that in the last few months, he worked to overcome his shortcomings and changed his practice style. If we can take their best from them, then they can become superstar players.
Prithvi Vijay Hazare’s top scorer

The poor performance last season
Prithvi Shaw had a poor performance last season. He scored 228 runs in 13 matches at an average of 17.53. At the same time, he was ruled out of the playing eleven due to poor performance in the first match of the four-Test series on the tour of Australia.
