Prithvi Shaw Profile

A roaring sea, chaotic traffic, tall buildings, and a talented crop of young cricketers; this is how we describe Mumbai. And it hasn't disappointed till now as Prithvi Shaw took the torch in his hand and marched forward when he successfully led his national team to the Under-19 World Cup glory in 2018.


His name has been cropping in newspapers for a while now and for all the right reasons. When he was just 14, he blasted 546 off 330 balls in an innings which contained 85 boundaries and 5 maximums. He did it when he was playing for his school Rizvi Springfield in the Harris Shield. Though it's a minors' cricket competition, it has been known to produce such performances time and again.


Prithvi once again came into the limelight when he was a part of India's Under-19 youth Asia cup winning squad in November 2016 in Sri Lanka. Since then, his name has been put to the banners like once it was done for the then prodigy, Sachin Tendulkar. He made the comparisons even more concrete when he hit centuries in both his Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy debuts - a record previously held by Sachin Tendulkar.


He added another feather in his cap when the Delhi-based franchise in the Indian T20 League bid Rs. 1.2 cr for the untested right-handed opening batsman. His Brian Laraesque backlift earned him a lot of plaudits as he went on to gather fans all over India in the tournament with his classy drives and flicks.


With already some records in his kitty at such a young age, Shaw has been kept grounded by his humble background. He still has a long road ahead of him but the signs of being a long, prosperous and triumphant career are all there. Already being acclaimed as the next big thing since Virat Kohli in the Indian cricket as well as the international circuit, Prithvi Pankaj Shaw could well write new chapters in the cricketing history.
