“These are simply fitness updates. Obviously, this does not prevent Prithvi from playing in the IPL for the Delhi Capitals. It’s just a fitness parameter, not the be-all and end-all “a source told PTI
“Look, he play three Ranji matches in a row. When you play three first-class games in a row, fatigue can affect your Yo-Yo score “He continued.
Shaw hasn’t been among the fittest Indian players of late. Which could be one of the reasons he hasn’t been considered for any of the current senior teams across formats.
Even as a replacement, the team management has preferred Mayank Agarwal as a reserve opener in the white-ball format, despite some underwhelming performances by the Karnataka man.
“If Prithvi isn’t being considered on a regular basis, it’s possible that his fitness standards aren’t up to par, as is expected of a Team India player,” the source said.
Shaw last appeared for India in a Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka in Colombo in July 2021. The talented right-hander, however, was retained by IPL franchise Delhi Capitals ahead of the mega auction, along with Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, and Anrich Nortje.
Shaw will be seen in action when DC kicks off their IPL 2022 campaign on March 27 against Mumbai Indians.
