Sourav Ganguly, former Indian cricket team captain and ex-BCCI president, in a recent interview at the inauguration of the International Procurement and Supply Chain Conference, stated that Prithvi Shaw is still young and deserves more opportunities to improve his game in the shortest format.

He also talks about the impact-player rule and comments that he is in support of the rule but he hopes that the boundaries should be pushed even further in future IPL tournaments. 

The impact-player rule has gained mixed reactions from the cricket fraternity in the IPL 2024

The director of cricket for the Delhi Capitals also praised the young dynamic player and stated that he is a fine player and with given time and opportunity will improve and play good cricket in future.

"He (Prithvi Shaw) is a young kid. He is just 23. He is still learning how to play T20 cricket. He is a very fine talent and he will get better. Sometimes, we expect too much too early from everyone and I am sure Prithvi, with the skills he has, he will do well," he added.

Prithvi Shaw has played 8 matches in IPL 2024 for DC and has scored 198 with an average of 24.75 and a strike rate of 163.64. This season the batter has not performed up to the mark and has failed to impress the fans and cricket legends. 

Sourav Ganguly Talks About Impact Rule In IPL 

In the same interview talking about the impact rule, the former BCCI president stated that he supports the impact-player rule but prefers that teams make their own decisions at the toss.

He also suggested that he wants the boundaries to be pushed further back in upcoming IPL editions.

"I ( Sourav Ganguly) like the impact player rule. My only thing with IPL is that I just want the grounds to be a bit bigger. The fences should go a little behind," Ganguly concluded.
