There’s a reason why Mumbai is called the cradle of Indian cricket. The vibrant city has not only produced gems in Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar, but has given top quality players in Vijay Merchant, Polly Umrigar, Ravi Shastri and Sanjay Manjrekar. Joining this league of greats is a teen prodigy — Prithvi Shaw.
More than just the runs
Leading the Indian team at the ICC U-19 World Cup in New Zealand, the 18-year-old has shown glimpses of his quality in the three games India has dominated so far.
Having joined his idol Sachin Tendulkar in a rare feat of scoring hundreds in both of his Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy debuts last year, Shaw is expected to lead the Indian charge at the World Cup too.
Shaw makes it to record books
Known for his supreme ball-striking abilities, watch him tonk the Australian bowler, Xavier Bartlett for a maximum over mid-on.
