Wasim Akram says without hesitation, “Wasim Akram, focus on cricket, not parties.”


Delhi Capitals are still in the running for the playoffs despite having a mediocre season thus far in the 2024 Indian Premier League. There are still games against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Lucknow Rummy Nabob 777, two teams that are also vying for postseason berths, for the team, which now has six victories and as many defeats in 12 innings played. Their famous Indian opener, Prithvi Shaw, has been inconsistent all season long, despite the fact that the team has performed better in the second part of the match.

Despite making just eight appearances, the young player’s season in 2017 was forgettable as he failed to score 100 runs. Although 2024 saw some improvements, he has not yet reached his peak; in 8 games, he has scored 198 runs at a 163.64 strike rate. Jake Fraser-McGurk and Abhishek Porel played well in the opening XI in the team’s most recent victory over the Rajasthan Royals, hence he was left out of the starting lineup.

Speaking about Shaw’s difficulties this season, former Pakistani bowler Wasim Akram offered some advice to the young Indian player who has lost out on berths in the national team due to erratic play and personal problems. Akram acknowledged Shaw’s skill.

“This year, I haven’t really followed him, but he needs to get back to the fundamentals, play premier cricket, and get lots of runs. Akram said to Dafabet, “Pay attention to cricket, not fun.

Simply return to playing first-class cricket; he still has a lot of cricket left in him. Make your comeback and get a lot of centuries. There isn’t another. No short cut exists. In addition, Akram remarked, “He benefits from having free time.

During the team’s preparation for the white-ball series against Sri Lanka in 2021, Shaw made his farewell appearance for Team India. Wasim Akram emphasized that Shaw must take care of himself off the field and play frequently.

“In addition to playing often, he needs to assess himself off the pitch. After retirement, have as many parties as you like—it doesn’t really matter. Now, though, concentrate on cricket,” he remarked.

The Royal Challengers Bengaluru will host the Delhi Capitals in a match that is significant for both teams in the IPL on May 12 when the team returns to play.
