Once touted as a promising cricket talent, Prithvi Shaw faced challenges due to inconsistency in performance and off-field distractions. His stint with Delhi Capitals in the ongoing IPL 2024 season doesn't look promising. He is constantly facing criticism due to his fitness as well. 

Despite occasional flashes of brilliance, Shaw grappled with maintaining a steady performance level throughout the tournament.  His average is below 25, which is a big factor in Delhi Capitals's initial failure in the IPL. 

What is Wasim Akram's advice to Prithvi Shaw?

Pakistani bowling stalwart Wasim Akram extended guidance to Shaw, advocating for a return to fundamental cricketing principles and prioritizing participation in first-class cricket. He stressed the importance of focusing on cricket rather than indulging in social distractions, Akram emphasized the necessity for Shaw to register substantial scores in domestic matches to stage a resurgence.

While acknowledging Shaw's innate talent, Akram underscored the importance of maintaining consistent performance levels and adhering to a disciplined lifestyle off the field. He urged Shaw to redirect his focus towards his cricketing journey, suggesting that opportunities for socializing can be pursued post-retirement.

What's next for Prithvi Shaw?

With Shaw's last appearance for Team India dating back to 2021, Akram's advice might be a timely reminder for the young cricketer to prioritize his professional development and his approach towards his cricketing ambitions.
