Ricky Ponting Predicts Prithvi Shaw's Mode Of Dismissal Moments Before The Opener Gets out
Prithvi Shaw's second-ball duck on Day 1 of the Adelaide Test earned him a lot of criticism on social media, with fans questioning his poor shot selection. Apart from Shaw's dismissal, another thing that became a huge talking point on Twitter was how Ricky Ponting, Shaw's head coach at Delhi Capitals, predicted a flaw in his technique and he got out on the very next ball in the exactly same manner.
"He has got a little chink in his armour, I think it's the ball that does come back in to him. Very comfortable playing the ball away from his body. He does get his head in the line of the ball and plays under his eyes but he doesn't commit his front foot to the line of the ball a lot. Quite often leaves a big gap between bat and pad and that's where the Aussies will target. Starc will try and swing one back through the gate," said Ponting in a video posted by 7 Cricket on Twitter.
