Akash Chopra, former cricketer of Team India and currently playing the role of commentator, has reviewed the performance of Delhi Capitals in this year’s IPL. In this, he has told that the performance of the team was very good, but the two players, on which the team had the highest expectations, could not meet those expectations. Akash named opener Prithvi Shaw and wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant among the players. He said that the Delhi Capitals had made their strategy around these two players that Prithvi would give a quick start to the team and Pant would come in the last overs and rain fours and sixes on the ground, but it could not happen.

Talking about Prithvi Shaw, Akash Chopra said on his YouTube channel that this young opener had started the tournament in the best way but then his performance declined and then he could not come back. Shaw got a place in the team team of senior batsman Ajinkya Rahane in the first leg of the tournament, but he could not take advantage of this and returned to the pavilion after losing wickets early on most occasions. Akash also criticized the attitude of Shaw, who was often not learning even after being dismissed in the same way and he did not seem to mind much more than getting out.

He further said that he is a very young player and everyone expects continuity from you. It is possible that one day your strike rate may not be very good but when you do not want to change your attitude, then there is a problem. He said that he was out in almost the same style and that too again and again. If you continue to do this, then the team will also have no problem in excluding you.
Talking about his performance, he played very good innings in the first leg of the tournament. This included 66 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders, while a superb innings of 42 runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore. As the second phase of the tournament began, their game declined and continued unabated. He played 13 matches throughout the tournament where he scored 228 runs with a poor average of 17.53. However, his strike rate during this period was good which was 136.
