Sachin Tendulkar, the God of Cricket, who scored big in school cricket, got hundreds on Ranji and Duleep in his debut and by the end of his career became the Master Blaster. None of the cricket fans can imagine someone stepping into the shoes of Tendulkar. Although there has been some spark in the world of cricket, no one did manage to spread the fire like Sachin did. But at an eventful day, 1 at Rajkot marked a highly anticipated Test debut of one of the exciting young talents in the country- Prithvi Shaw. The performance of Shaw captured eyeballs and soon he was being compared to his fellow Mumbaikar Sachin Tendulkar.
Shaw, after his performance in Rajkot, has already developed the reputation of scaling the tallest peaks. At the age of 14-year old, Prithvi Shaw scored a world record for school cricket with a whopping 546 runs. He then scored 120 runs against Tamil Nadu on Ranji Debut at the age of 17. An irony, that match was also held in Rajkot. He then led India to victory in the 2018 U-19 World Cup. Prithvi Shaw became the youngest Indian to get a 50 and 100 on debut, 2nd youngest Indian (after Tendulkar) to get a Test ton.
Experts believe that Prithvi is an excellent learner, and he has the will to use his talent in learning the bits and pieces of cricket and that’s what makes him different from the rest and similar to the Master Blaster. At this age, he posses an exceptional hand-eye coordination, which seems to be a natural talent, a gift that many lacks.
