Prithvi Shaw, the young Indian cricketer, went through a tough phase in the recent times as his performance in the IPL 2020 was below the expectations and then he was also dropped from the playing eleven after performing poorly in the first test match against Australia in the four match test series.
In the IPL 2020, Prithvi Shaw was able to score merely 228 runs in the 13 matches that he played whereas in the test series against Australia, he scored 0 and 4 in the first test match which was played at Adelaide and as we all know, India suffered a humiliating defeat in the match. Prithvi Shaw was slammed for his poor performance and some former cricketers even went on to state that there is a fault in the technique of Prithvi Shaw, adding that he won’t be able to survive at the international level if he doesn’t rectify it. Prithvi was not even included in the Indian team which was selected for playing against England in the ongoing four test match series.
But the good news is that the talented cricketer is back in form and in a match against Puducherry which is being played in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Prithvi Shaw has hit his first List A double ton. This is the first time that Prithvi Shaw is not just playing for Mumbai but also leading the team. He scored 227 runs for which he played only 152 deliveries and his innings included four sixes and 27 fours. What makes it more special is the fact that he reached the 200 mark in just 142 balls. Prithvi Shaw must be hoping a call from the Indian team as earlier he also scored a century not out against Delhi.
Prithvi is quite active on the social media networks also and he was quite determined to give it back to trollers and critics who targeted him after his failure in Australia so he posted a fan-made meme on his official Instagram account. In the meme, there are two photos of Prithvi – the first one is with the write up, “Edit karke tune image mera meme bana diya (You made a meme by editing my image)” and the second one has write up, “Mehnat karke tere bhai ne poora dream bana diya (I worked hard and made my dream come true)” written on it.
Here is the meme:
Well this was certainly a good reply from the young Indian cricketer! We wish that he continues to be in good form and gets to play at the international level again.
