"Can't Score Runs From Dugout": Experts Rip Into Delhi Capitals For Benching India Star | Cricket News

Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody stated that the omission of wicketkeeper-batsman Prithvi Shaw from playing XI in the Delhi Capitals (DC) “doesn’t make sense” and suggested that DC should select a 24-year-old batsman for their upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL). ) 2024 matches. Moody pointed out that while Shaw has not been impressive in recent seasons, selecting him over Bhui is a more plausible option given his international cricket experience. “It doesn’t make any sense because you have an Indian international player (Prithvi Shaw) in the dugout. Yes, he hasn’t performed in the IPL as we all hoped, but that’s possible.” I scored runs from the dugout,” Moody told ESPNcricinfo.

Shaw was on the bench in Delhi’s first two matches this season. Domestic cricketer Ricky Bhui has not made the most of his chances, scoring 3 and 0 against Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) respectively.

Wasim Jaffer expressed surprise that Delhi did not play Shaw despite retaining him for the IPL 2024 mini-auction. Commenting on the omission of the swashbuckling opener from DC’s first two meetings, Jaffer said: “Now that they’ve kept him and not let him go up for auction, I’m surprised they’re not playing him. He’s got most years for Mumbai played.” of the season, so you would think he would be fit. I am surprised. Punishing him and then losing the games is not the way to move forward.”

Shaw came under fire for a string of underperformance in the IPL 2023. He finished with 106 runs from eight innings, an average of 13.25.

Ricky Bhui fell behind due to a duck in the match against Rajasthan on Thursday. Nandre Burger retired the right-handed batsman with a sharp bouncer.

Moody commented on the dismissal, stating that it highlighted the disparity between domestic cricket and the IPL.

“That’s exactly what you would want to see a true fast bowler do. And to do it to a top player is even more alarming. What it also does is highlight the leap between Ranji Trophy runs to international cricket and IPL,” he added to.

The Rishabh Pant-led side will be desperate to open their account in IPL 2024 when they take on reigning champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday.
