‘What player is this’
Akash said, ‘Viru (Sehwag) was once in this place, but this player, 24 balls 43 runs, it seemed that without pushing, without taking a chance, he was just going to the heights by hitting the gap. I mean what player is this. The year 2021 is in the name of this player, first Vijay Hazare Trophy, then IPL and now this.
Tips to avoid the wrong shot
Aakash Chopra also admitted that Prithvi Shaw was out after playing a wrong shot, he should think about it as he could convert it into a big innings. However, despite not being able to hit a fifty, Shaw was awarded the ‘Man of the Match’ award.
