Shaw out of team due to his weight

The source said that to return to Team India, Prithvi Shaw will have to work on his fitness, he will have to lose weight. The source quoted Times of India as saying that Shaw has the example of Rishabh Pant to learn. Indian wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant was also dropped from the team due to his weight but he worked on himself and made a great comeback.

A source associated with the BCCI said, ‘Prithvi is still very slow in the field by the age of 21 years. They need to lose a few kilos. He also lacked concentration during fielding in Australia. There is an example of Rishabh Pant in front of him. If Pant can change things in a few months, then the earth can also do it.

The source associated with BCCI said, ‘Prithvi Shaw will have to maintain this form for some more tournaments. He is often selected in the team on the basis of a good series and after that he is seen struggling in international cricket. Prithvi Shaw is a brilliant player, he cannot be ignored for a long time ‘.
