Shikhar Dhawan Presents Signatured Bat to Prithvi Shaw with a Big Inspiring Message
After one a half month of top-class cricket, the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) came to an end last Sunday with Mumbai Indians winning the title for the 4th time after defeating Chennai Super Kings by a solitary run in the final at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. During these 7 weeks, there were some good bonding between the players which have gone onto reflect on how they have performed in the tournament.
The opening duo for the Delhi Capitals was experienced and already proven Shikhar Dhawan and a young but highly skilful Prithvi Shaw. They forged a good bonding at the top of the order and provided DC with some good starts at the top of the order. Although Prithvi Shaw wasn’t quite consistent in the tournament some of his knocks were pretty special.
On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan was quite consistent in the tournament and was the highest run scorer for the Delhi Capitals. The southpaw played some sensational knocks and was also impressed with the performance of hi opening partner Prithvi Shaw. Apparently, he presented Shaw a cricket bat with a strong message which says that Prithvi will be a legend in the future. “You will be a legend one day,” read the caption in the bottom of the bat with the signature of the left-hander himself.
Prithvi Shaw scored 353 runs in 16 matches in the tournament and scored the highest score of 99 against Kolkata Knight Riders. The youngster has already made his Test debut for India and scored a century in his debut against Windies. He was the first choice opener for the Test series in Australia but an injury proved to be the end of the tour for him without playing a single Test match.
Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw was tipped to be a No 4 option for India in the World Cup. However, he didn’t do justice to his reputation as he wasn’t consistent enough in the IPL. He is currently plying his trade for the North Mumbai Panther in the Mumbai T20 League and is the leader of his franchise. His team has won both the matches in the tournament so far.
