Recently, In an interview with Cricbuzz, Shaw was asked which player he opens up to in the team about the difficult points in his career. The Delhi Capitals star revealed that he has never opened up to anyone.
"Everyone talks to each other. But opening up... hardly. At least, I've never opened up to anyone. Yes, all the mazaak-masti (fun and games) happens. But personal space used to be personal," he said.
When asked about the person he reaches out to share his thoughts, Shaw picked his father and his coach as his go-to people.
"I keep talking to my dad. If it's about cricket, I reach out to my coach, Prashant Shetty. I am telling you, nowadays, I have stopped sharing my thoughts with people. I keep it all within," he revealed.
