Indian opening batsman Prithvi Shaw has been going through a tough phase and is currently out of the national team. Shaw is making efforts for a comeback to the Indian team. At present, he is participating in the County Championship One-Day Cup in England.
On Friday (August 4), he made his County debut for Northamptonshire. However, his debut did not turn out to be special, and he got out in a bizarre manner, becoming the topic of discussion.
Recently, he played a splendid half-century against Steelbacks in a practice match. He played a stunning knock of 65 runs off just 39 balls. In the One-Day Cup, Prithvi Shaw played his first match against Gloucestershire.
During the match, Northamptonshire’s quick bowler, Paul van Meekeren, delivered a bouncer that caught Shaw by surprise. Shaw attempted a pull shot, but the ball hurried onto him, resulting in losing his balance, and he ended up hitting the ball onto his stumps. Shaw was looking good with the bat, scoring 34 runs off 35 balls, including a six and two boundaries.
It’s worth noting that Prithvi Shaw was denied a chance to play in the Devdhar Trophy for County Championship. Shaw is trying to make a strong comeback to the Indian team, following the footsteps of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, who have performed well in English county cricket.
Meanwhile, in this match, Prithvi Shaw’s team, Northamptonshire, faced a defeat by 23 runs against Gloucestershire. While batting first, Gloucestershire scored 278 runs in 48.4 overs, thanks to a magnificent century by Graeme van Buuren, who scored 108 runs. In reply, Northamptonshire’s entire team was bowled out for 255 runs in 48.1 overs.
