It was not a memorable comeback to Test cricket for young Prithvi Shaw as he was labored over by Tim Southee and Trent Boult in each the innings in Wellington. Commentators and analysts weren’t completely satisfied together with his method as they believed there have been far too many chinks in his armour as an opener. However, Team India captain Virat Kohli doesn’t need to learn an excessive amount of after simply the one match in international conditions and he needs to be affected person and let the young man get by means of just a few extra video games.
“I don’t think at this stage, we need to sit down and discuss what’s going wrong because I don’t see anything wrong. It’s the execution of things which was not there,” Kohli mentioned.
The captain needs to young man to be clear in his thought course of and believes it was only a matter of time earlier than he will get going even in powerful conditions.
“It is just a matter of understanding the pace of the wicket and conditions as soon as possible. Again, when he is in a clear frame of mind, he is very, very destructive. Once he feels that he can do it, I think it will be a different ball game. The mindset can shift very quickly,” Kohli mentioned.
“Prithvi obviously wants to perform and no doubt about it, every batsman wants to. We need to give him that time to get used to the conditions a little bit and once he starts scoring, he will feel more confident about it,” the captain added.
Kohli, who too confronted an identical begin, when he performed away from house for the primary time doesn’t need to leap the gun and as an alternative give the opener a reasonably lengthy rope earlier than making conclusions. “I think we can sit down and analyse, maybe after 8 or 10 similar dismissals. I don’t think (it’s fair to the guy), who is playing away from home for the first time and is probably experiencing different kind of bowling attack at international level compared to playing at home,” Kohli mentioned on the finish of the primary match.
