IND Vs ENG: Star batsman Prithvi Shaw has staked claim to return to Team India. Recently, after working on fitness from the National Cricket Academy, Prithvi Shaw has taken the Ranji Trophy by storm. While playing for Mumbai against Chhattisgarh, Prithvi Shaw played a explosive inning of 159 runs in 185 balls. Prithvi Shaw’s innings included 18 fours and three sixes. Not only this, Prithvi Shaw along with Bhupen also gave Mumbai a start of 244 runs for the first wicket. Through this innings, Prithvi Shaw has been successful in proving both form and fitness.
Prithvi Shaw coming back to form is also a relief news for Delhi Capitals. Despite performing very poorly in the last season, Delhi Capitals retained Prithvi Shaw with the team. Since Rishabh Pant is not yet sure to play the entire season, then Prithvi Shaw can prove to be a game changer for Delhi Capitals. Prithvi Shaw starts the innings in a explosive manner. If Shaw is successful in getting Delhi Capitals off to a good start, then it will not be easy for the opposing bowlers to make a comeback in the match.
Path opened for Team India also
Prithvi Shaw scored a century while making her Test debut for Team India at the age of 19. Shaw was being seen as a future star. But then Prithvi Shaw’s form and fitness came under question. Team India is now looking towards the future. In such a situation, Shaw has a great opportunity to prove himself and make a comeback in the IPL. Prithvi Shaw was last seen playing for India in 2021. Apart from 5 Tests, Prithvi Shaw has also got a chance to play 6 ODIs and one T20 match for Team India. However, Shaw’s claim to return to the Test team can be very strong.
