New Delhi: Team India will leave for the World Test Championship for 2 June. The BCCI’s Senior Selection Committee did not select Prithvi Shaw, who is in good form, for this tournament. Since then, questions were being raised on the BCCI. However, after the Test Championship, the talk of the T20 World Cup 2021 has started.
Former Pakistan player Salman Butt has given a big statement about Prithvi Shaw. He has said that Shaw will not get a chance in the Indian team even for the T20 World Cup.
Not Shaw, KL Rahul will be the team’s first choice: Butt
Salman Butt has reacted to Prithvi Shaw on his YouTube channel. He said, ‘It is a very good thing for India that they have many options. He has many such players who are excellent and can play at international level. Right now he has L. Rahul who does the opening. Apart from this, they also do wicketkeeping which is an extra advantage. They bring more balance in the team. Being in their team, the captain has the option of feeding an extra batsman or bowler. So I think he will be the first choice ‘.
Lack of continuity inside Shaw: Butt
He said, ‘There is no shortage of talent inside Prithvi Shaw and he has scored a lot of runs. I still believe that he is playing too many shots very soon because there is a lack of consistency in him. Especially the Indian team goes with the players who consistently perform well and are more reliable. We have seen Prithvi Shaw playing in only one way. He plays his shots’.
Prithvi Shaw’s performance
Prithvi Shaw performed poorly in the Australian tour after which he was dropped from the team. After that, Prithvi Shaw won his team Mumbai by scoring a record 827 runs in the Vijay Trophy. Apart from this, Shaw’s form was also very good in IPL 2021. Shaw had scored 308 runs in eight matches of the IPL with an average of 38.50 and a strike rate of 166.48.
