Prithvi Shaw's Cryptic Post Confuses Fans
Prithvi Shaw has been involved in several headline-grabbing incidents in the past, and his recent cryptic social media post has left fans scratching their heads.
In case you missed it, Shaw took to Instagram to share a message that read, "Some people will only love you, as much as they can use you. Their loyalty ends where the benefits stop."
Shaw's Past Headlines
Of course, this isn't the first time Shaw has found himself in the spotlight. Who could forget his refusal to bat in the nets during IPL 2020 and other controversial headlines? However, the young opener has also shown plenty of promise in domestic cricket, scoring heavily for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
This year, during a Ranji Trophy match against Assam, Shaw achieved the second-highest score in the tournament's history by smashing 379 runs. He also plays for the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League, where he scored an impressive 283 runs in 10 matches last season at a strike rate of 147.45.
As a result of this outstanding performance in the Ranji Trophy, he was selected for the T20 International series against New Zealand. Shaw, who had already been one of the top run-scorers in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy this season, shared on his Instagram account stories of people congratulating him on his selection.
Recent Reports on Shaw
In a recent interview, he said, "I will keep on looking for opportunities because I have a list of goals I want to achieve with the Indian team." We have to admire his tenacity, even in the face of setbacks and criticism.
That being said, Shaw did make headlines again recently after an altercation with a social media influencer at a nightclub. While there are conflicting reports about what happened, it's clear that Shaw's behavior was not ideal.
All of this drama aside, Shaw will soon have a chance to prove himself on the cricket field once again. The Indian Premier League 2023 is just around the corner, and he'll be representing the Delhi Capitals.
Shaw and Delhi Capitals
Shaw recently participated in a three-day camp in Kolkata, which was supervised by none other than legendary former India captain Sourav Ganguly. Along with other domestic players such as Chetan Sakariya and Manish Pandey, Shaw honed his skills and preparation for the upcoming season of the IPL, where he will be seen in action for the Delhi Capitals.
Shaw has often been compared to Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, and many believe that he has the potential to achieve great things in international cricket.
However, his recent controversies and lack of opportunities in the Indian team have raised questions about his temperament and ability to handle pressure.
The upcoming IPL season could be a make-or-break one for the young cricketer, and he will be hoping to make the most of any opportunities that come his way.
The 2023 Indian Premier League, also known as TATA IPL 2023, will begin on March 31st. The Gujarat Titans are the defending champions, and the tournament will return to its original home and away format after four years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
