The Second Master Blaster – Prithvi Shaw
As Prithvi Shaw hit a huge century against West Indies in Rajkot, his cricket coach took immense pride. The youngest batting sensation after Sachin Tendulkar, Prithvi Shaw is not here to step back. Though it took time for the selectors to have him on board, he has cleared all doing post his first century. Now, nobody would give a second thought to have him in the cricket team.

Many cricket legends hail his presence and oblige him with the tag of second Sachin Tendulkar, the Mumbaikar etched his name in history forever. Called for the India England final test squad but he could not hit the ground. However, the public patience was soon overwhelmed by his presence in the test match against West Indies. A massive stroke and he has captivated all minds.
The right-handed batsman has an excellent grip and stance as he hits the ball. The punchy attitude and the base to play late all adds up to his tag.

However, it’s too early to judge him. The real face-off would unveil after bowlers read him and then serve.
Will he be able to survive then, is a question?
Let’s see, where our next master blaster goes!!
