Shaw has shown unprecedented hunger for runs at every level of cricket he has played and has been touted as the next big thing in the Indian cricket after Virat Kohli. The immense potential and consistent performance at the first-class level, and the fact that he has remained unphased through the adulation, earned him a spot in the Indian Test squad in England for the last two Test matches.
Despite not making it through to the playing XI of either game, his wait finally came to an end as he debuted against the Windies in Rajkot on October 4th, 2018, immediately scoring a swift 99-ball hundred against a potent bowling line-up and making a seamless transition into the grueling world of Test cricket. With the correct guidance, enough chances, as well as a judicious distribution of his workload, he may well be his own batting prodigy, who could make the cricketing world bow down to him in the years to come.
Prithvi made his first-class debut in the semi-finals of the Ranji Trophy in 2016-17. He ended up scoring a century in the second innings of the match and made a permanent place in the Mumbai side.
Rise to glory
As he led the Rizvi Springfield team to a Harris Shield title in 2012, Shaw scored 155 in the semi-final and 174 in the final game. In April of the same year, he was invited to play for Cheadle Hulme School in Manchester, England. During his two-month stay there, he scored almost 1,500 runs and took 68 wickets.
In 2014, he played for the Yorkshire ECB County Premier League for the entire summer. In 2017, he scored his first century at the Under-19 level in his fifth match only. His performances over the years have led to several comparisons to Sachin Tendulkar and he is seen as a future international player for India.
Shaw plays for the Middle Income Cricket Club in Mumbai. At the 2018 IPL auctions, he was bought by Delhi Daredevils for Rs. 1.2 crores.
Prithvi Shaw was appointed the captain of the Under-19 team in December 2017 for the 2018 Under-19 World Cup. He went on to lead the team to win the competition.
IPL through the years
Prithvi Shaw for long has been touted as the next big thing in Indian cricket and judging by that Delhi bought him at an excellent price of 1.2 Crores. Initially, he wasn’t getting an opportunity to be a part of the playing eleven but the poor form of Gautam Gambhir opened the door for Shaw. He made most of his opportunities and got Delhi off to brisk starts on most occasions.
He started off well with a 10-ball 22 and a flurry of aggressive innings over the course of the season and ended up cementing his spot in the side, running riot in the powerplay, before Rishabh Pant could cut loose at the death. Shaw will look to replicate those performances when he will churn out for Delhi this year.
Shaw played an innings of 546 runs in a 2013-14 Harris Shield match for the Rizvi Springfield team from just 330 deliveries. At the time, the score was the highest in all of Indian school cricket. The record was surpassed by Pranav Dhanawade in 2016. He also shares the record of scoring a century in Ranji Trophy debut and Duleep Trophy debut with Tendulkar.
