There is no denying the fact that young Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw is very talented but it is also true that he is going through a rough phase at the moment. He couldn’t perform well in the IPL 2020 and then the Australian tour has also been pretty bad for him. He was not able to give a solid performance when he was given the chance and some former cricketers also talked about the flaw in his technique, stating that he won’t be able to survive at the international level until he rectifies it.
The social media users also trolled him mercilessly whenever he failed to score runs but now he is getting trolled even when he is not a part of the Indian squad.
In the fourth and final test match at Brisbane, the Indian cricketer Navdeep Saini left the field after he had some issue with his groin and Prithvi Shaw came to field as a substitute. During the game, Prithvi Shaw was fielding inside the inner circle and the batsman hit the shot towards him.
Prithvi ran and collected the ball, he then quickly threw the ball on the non-striker’s end but the ball hit the vice-captain Rohit Sharma who was standing between Shaw and the wicket. However, Rohit Sharma didn’t react and he also didn’t say anything but he could have got injured and this incident was more than enough for cricket fans to get in action mode.

You drop Prithvi Shaw? He'll injure the other opener to take the slot back.

Thoughts on Shaw throwing the ball directly at Rohit’s palm . Very comical and tragic at the same time @1tip1hand
