IPL 2018: Prithvi Shaw's Brain-fade Moment Leads To Run-out, Makes Twitterati Angry — Watch

IPL 2018, DD vs MI: Was Prithvi Shaw expecting that Hardik Pandya's throw will not be accurate? It sure seemed like from his laziness

Prithvi Shaw is one of the exciting talents of Indian cricket to become an overnight sensation. But he is young and is bound to mistakes. Shaw made a horrible mistake during Delhi Daredevils’ (DD) last match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 against Mumbai Indians (MI). The 18-year-old showed lackadaisical play at the non-striker’s end which cost him his wicket.

On the first ball of the fourth over, Glenn Maxwell tried to work the ball through offside fielders but found Hardik Pandya at the point position. Hardik was quick to throw the ball and aim at the stumps on the non-striker’s end. Shaw was out of the crease and was walking slowly towards the crease, unwary of the fielders and unperturbed by the possibility that the ball might hit the stumps.

Forget about diving, Shaw did not even make an effort to drag his bat inside. After getting a decent start, Shaw just threw his wicket away. He scored 12 runs off 8 balls, including two boundaries.

Shaw has been the find of the tournament for DD. He has scored 245 runs from 9 matches played in this season, including two half-centuries. However, he has not been consistent throughout the season. In the past four outings, he has scored just 40 runs from four matches, including two single-digit scores.

He did not get chance in the side in the start this season. But an inconsistent top order, mainly former DD skipper Gautam Gambhir who stepped down from the captaincy after team’s dismal show, led to Shaw’s inclusion in the top order.
