Delhi Capitals’ opener Prithvi Shaw sidestepped a ‘tough’ question by commentators during his team’s Indian Premier League contest against Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Monday.
Early on during the Rajasthan innings, Shaw – who was wired in – was asked by commentators Simon Doull and Murali Karthik whom he has been learning more during DC training sessions – mentor Sourav Ganguly or coach Ricky Ponting?

Shaw – clearly caught off guard by this question – had an ace up his sleeve as he was heard saying: ‘I can’t hear you. There seem to be some problem with the connection.”
Shaw’s tactics to avoid answering this awkward question floored the commentators as they bust our laughing. The young India cricketer also said that he is trying to learn as much as possible from the duo as they have vast experience and knowledge of the game.
Earlier, Delhi won the toss and opted to bowl against Rajasthan. DC made one change, bringing in Chris Morris in place of Sandeep Lamichhane, while RR are playing an unchanged side.
Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (capt), Rishabh Pant, Colin Ingram, Chris Morris, Sherfane Rutherford, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma
Rajasthan Royals: Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Steven Smith (capt), Ben Stokes, Riyan Parag, Ashton Turner, Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni
