Rising India batsman Prithvi Shaw will be one of the key members for Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2020. He has started with his net session and looks in good touch. Prithvi Shaw will open for the capital franchise along with senior India batsman Shikhar Dhawan. He will also have the onus to give the side a good start.

Shaw has started preparing for IPL 2020. He was seen taking a few knocks at the net session overlooked by Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting. Shaw was seen hitting the ball from the sweet spot as Ricky Ponting was left impressed with a few of them. He was also heard encouraging the top order batsman by saying ‘awesome shot’.

Ricky Ponting is an extraordinary mind to have in the dressing room. Delhi Capitals players are reaping benefits from his time at the franchise as head coach. His impact on the team has also been quick as Delhi Capitals, studded with some young talents, went on to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in seven years in the last season of IPL.

Delhi Capitals will look to better their performance further in the upcoming season and Australia’s most successful coach Ricky Ponting is doing the best he can. The franchise CEO Dhiraj Malhotra said Ponting is an inspirational figure and a motivating person to be around. He also added that Ponting starts the training with a small speech which gives goosebumps to everyone.

Delhi Capitals have Shreyas Iyer leading fellow youngsters like Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant in their ranks. Senior India opener Shikhar Dhawan only adds to the experience of their squad. They will also be bolstered with the presence of premier India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in the upcoming season of IPL.
