Akash Chopra advises Prithvi Shaw to convert good starts into big scores
Prithvi Shaw’s batting in the current Srilankan tour has caught the eyes of all the experts. His ability to score quickly off pure cricket shots and his ability to pierce the gaps in the field with ease has been a treat to the eyes and along with many fans and experts, Akash Chopra is no exception.
Akash has been swept off his feet at the talent displayed by Shaw. He remarked ” as long as Shaw is at the crease, batting seems like a breeze ”
Akash spoke eloquently of Shaw’s talent and his ability to play his strokes with ease by piercing the gaps for boundaries.
However, he has expressed disappointment at Shaw’s inability to convert his great starts to bigger scores that can create a greater impact on the results of the matches as well as in the minds of the selectors.
Shaw played crisp knocks of 44, 13 and 49 in the 3 ODIs and looked like million dollars but just when he was taking the game away, he got out to soft dismissals. This is where Akash Chopra feels that Shaw needs to improve. Akash Chopra advises Prithvi Shaw to convert good starts into big scores.
