Prithvi Shaw

Postby raja » Thu Nov 02, 2017 3:31 pm

He's just 17 but has had a phenomenal run so far in his very short career.

Should he be given a chance to play for India now itself?
Especially in Tests?

Since he's an opener, does it mean he comes in place of Murali Vijay?

Raja, before Prithvi Shreyas Iyer should play. He scored a double hundred against visiting Australians also did very well against NZ A.

He has been knocking on the door for last 3 years.

Shardul Thakur and Dhawal Kulkarni destroyed the Odisha batting yesterday.

Shreyas Iyer is not captaining as he is on India duty. Aditya Tare is leading the Mumbai side.

I think Raja is right here. This 17 year old youngster Shaw could be an India prospect if he keeps his feet on the ground.
