Former India opener Wasim Jaffer is a champion player in terms of understanding the game. He speak less, but when they speak, they speak of address. Jaffer has given his views about the young Prithvi Shaw.
Jaffer described Shaw as a great cricketer and said that there is no doubt about the ability of the earth and he is a natural player. He has all that is needed to become a big player for India in the coming years, but despite this, this young batsman needs to work on some aspects. Please note that in October 2018, Prithvi Shaw became the 15th batsman to score a century in his first Test for India.
He then scored 134 runs against the Windies at Rajkot. The manner in which Prithvi Shot plays reminds him of Virender Sehwag, but according to Jaffer, Jaffer needs to improve in many areas.
Jaffer said in a program with Aakash Chopra on YouTube channel that he is a special player. There is no doubt about it. The way he plays stroke and if his bat goes away, Sehwag is seen in the batting of the earth.
Shaw can completely destroy the bowling attack, but he needs to understand his game better. He said that Earth appeared stranded in the New Zealand tour. He was out on short pitch twice and got caught in the trap of Kiwis.
Shaw was injured in a practice match in Australia in the year 2018019. Then he was in discussions for the wrong reasons and Shaw’s news was being published about indiscipline. In fact, the matter reached such a level that the BCCI requested Sachin to meet Shaw to show him the importance of discipline.
And during the time of the earth’s injury, Sachin on one or two occasions invited Shaw to eat at his house and cheered him and told many important things. After this, he returned to the team on the tour of New Zealand, but he could not leave the impact except for the half-century scored in the second Test in Christchurch.
Jaffer said that the Earth needs to control itself to become a big player and a successful fortress for India. The former opener said that I also feel that the earth needs to be more disciplined about life outside the field. Prithvi has the ability to succeed internationally, but he needs to be more disciplined outside the field.
