Youngster from the franchise, the Delhi Capitals team, Prithvi Shaw, cannot believe his name is not mentioned in the list of 16 squad for the upcoming ODI series against the Proteas, led by Shikhar Dhawan.
Don’t get confused, and let us explain. Recently (On Sunday) BCCI announced the ODI squad for the upcoming three-match series against South Africa’s but surprisingly, besides names like of Rajat Patidar, Rahul Traipathi, Sanju Samson, Shardul Thakur, there was no mention of the young lad, Prithvi Shaw in the list of player, and was taken as snub from the player and also by the his fans on social media.
Infuriated by the development and not able to digest the news, Shaw eventually took his instagram handle to release his brunt with a cryptic post saying:
“Don’t trust their words, trust their actions, because actions will prove why words are meaningless”

The message is absolutely clear, and shows the level of disappointment and betrayal the cricketer must be feeling. Although, through the cryptic message, there was no mention of any names, responsible but as we all know, for decisions like these, all fingers direct’s only towards one direction and that is the selection team.
Even BCCI didn’t give any clarification so far but in case of any update, will surely keep you posted.
Coming back to the news, after the cryptic message was heard by the Shaw’s fan base on the social media, it turned out to be a wildfire, and from where people were questioning from every corner, now and then asking for clarification. To showcase a few interesting questionnaires from twitter users, have a look below.
A twitter user named Ganesh, through his handle says,
“Prithvi Shaw ke team management kesathkuch serious issues hai, confirmed by this squad”

Another twitter user, Vipul Ghatolsays,
“If Prithvi Shaw is getting ignored cuz of fitness, on disciplinary grounds or any other valid reason then I have no issue but please care to explain what is the reason behind his non-selection after performing so well in List A, we deserve explanation”
