Flamboyant opener Prithvi Shaw started his IPL 2021 with a bang as he amassed 72 runs off just 38 balls in DC’s opening game against CSK in IPL 2021. He looked in sublime touch throughout his innings as he tore apart the CSK attack during his swashbuckling innings.

After the match, Prithvi shared his views on his innings and also put forth his word on how he made comeback after he was dropped after the first Test during the Australian tour.

“Feeling good. Everyone contributed and it was a good start (to the season). The wicket was good to bat on in the second innings and we executed quite well. From Australia when I was dropped I was working from there itself, coming back and across early, so I practiced before going to Vijay Hazare with Pravin Amre and worked on that. I had a good plan before going into that tournament, so it is working quite well,” he said.

The Delhi opener also mentioned that he doesn’t want to think about the disappointment of getting dropped and added that he is working hard on himself. “I don’t want to think about it (being dropped from the Indian side) because it was a disappointing moment for me but I have to move on and if something is wrong with my batting or technique, I have to improve and I am working hard on myself,” he added.

Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan also applauded young Shaw for his fiery innings and said that Prithvi actually carried on from where he left in Vijay Hazare Trophy. “I really enjoyed my batting. Was enjoying the way I was hitting the ball. Prithvi was batting really well. He carried on with his form from Vijay Hazare. It was important to get off to a good start because we were chasing a big total,” Dhawan said.
