Prithvi Shaw the name that is being mentioned very frequently now by the cricket fans all over the world since he became the youngest Indian to score a test century on debut, during the first test against the Windies, earlier this month.

 

The 19-year-old made his debut look so simple and elegant, just like any other game, makes him the gifted player that he is. A batsman making his debut would generally think of the opportunity at hand to represent the country and may not want to blow the opportunity by getting out cheaply Except, Prithvi Shaw didn’t even take that failed outcome into consideration and made sure it was just another game where he can pile on the runs.

 

Let’s have a look at Prithvi Shaw’s Timeline:

14 – Scores 546 for school

17 – Makes FC debut

17 – Century in Ranji & Duleep Trophy

18 – Leads India U19 to WC title

18 – Has 5 FC 100s, plays IPL

18 years, 329 days – Set to play his maiden Test

 

That’s a lot of achievements in a short span of time!

 

He is already being endorsed by MRF, which has been associated with legends of the game in the past. He has got a technique that’s hard to define – It’s a combination of a class that Tendulkar possessed and the aggressive mindset that Sehwag had. Scoring quick and big makes him the perfect Indian opener currently. His debut century helped him get two endorsements overnight – Swiggy and Freecharge

 

What does this glamorous start of his career mean to Indian Cricket?

 

They have a trusted young opener in the side who carries the aggressive intent along with him. But, his test will begin in the huge overseas tour that everyone’s looking forward to. Quick and bouncy tracks down under will define his patience, skill and the mindset that is required in test cricket.

 

In conclusion, of all the headaches, skipper Virat Kohli has one less headache to worry about.
