Young Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw is the latest sensation in Indian cricket. The 18-year old Mumbai-lad has been hitting the headlines quite too often in the recent years. Ever since he started plying his trade in the domestic circuit, he has been tipped to be the next big thing in the Indian cricket. He proved all the pundits correct with a sensational maiden outing for the national team recently.
Prithvi Shaw was named in the Indian squad for the Test series in England but he did not get a game back then. Recently, he made his Test debut against the Windies and ended up scoring a magnificent ton in the game. There has been no looking back since then and he is certainly eyeing more achievements in the days to come.
The way Shaw has been batting, and the way he has been mustering runs, there have been a lot of comparisons of his gameplay with iconic players like Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. Much like Sachin, even Shaw has got an early start to his career. He had often admitted that Sachin is his idol. Recently, he managed to catch up with the master blaster and did not waste any time before sharing out the picture with the fans.
It was a massive fanboy moment for the youngster and he captioned the picture perfectly. He wrote, “Sir 100 #idol #respect”

Shaw’s batting fetched him praises from all corners. The head coach of the Indian team, Ravi Shastri looked mighty pleased with the efforts of the youngster. He remarked that one can see a bit of Tendulkar, Sehwag, and also Brian Lara in the young kid.
“He (Shaw) is born to play cricket. He’s been playing since the age of eight in the maidans of Mumbai. You can see all that hardwork showing. He’s a spectator’s delight. There’s a bit of Sachin there, a bit of Viru in him and when he walks – there’s a bit of Lara as well,” Ravi Shastri had said.
