Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag opened up about his recent interaction with Prithvi Shaw while discussing the Delhi Capitals (DC) batter’s poor campaign in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Virender Sehwag said that he met Prithvi Shaw for an ad shoot for six hours but didn’t talk about cricket.

Prithvi Shaw started the IPL 2023 on a poor note before being dropped from the playing XI. The right-handed batter scored just 47 runs in his first six matches, with a dismal average of 7.83 and a strike rate of 117.5. He made a comeback against the Punjab Kings and scored a much-needed half-century of 54 runs in 38 balls.

You Should Organise That Meeting – Virender Sehwag

During an interaction with Cricbuzz, Virender Sehwag recalled his interaction with legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar during the 2003-2004 season.

“He (Prithvi Shaw) did an ad shoot with me. Shubman Gill was also there. None of them talked about cricket for once. We were there for 6 hours. If you want to talk to someone then you have to approach them. When I was new to the team, I wanted to talk to Sunny Bhai (Gavaskar), So I said to John Wright that ‘I’m still a new player, I don’t know whether Sunny Bhai will meet me or not’, but you should organise that meeting.”

“So Wright organised a dinner in 2003-04 for me and I also said that my (opening) partner Aakash Chopra will also come so that we can talk about batting. So he came and had dinner with us. So, you have to make that effort. Sunil Gavaskar won’t make an effort to talk to Sehwag or Chopra. You have to request him,” Virender Sehwag told Cricbuzz.

One Has To Make A Request For That – Virender Sehwag

Virender Sehwag said that the players should be in a good state of mind to achieve the desired results. The former Indian opener suggested that Prithvi Shaw take help from the Chief Operating Officer of DC.

“He gave his input and we talked for a long. And we were rewarded for that conversation. But you have to put in that effort. Gavaskar will never make an effort to talk to Virender Sehwag or Aakash Chopra. So one has to make a request for that,” he further added.

“If Shaw handed such a request so I’m sure someone would have…he is playing for Delhi, so if you wanted to talk, he should have handed a request to the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of DC. In cricket, no matter how much talented you are. If you are not mentally up, if you are not fit mentally or don’t tune your mind. Then nothing can be done,” he concluded.
