Shaw @ 20: I’ll be back
Mumbai, November 9
Young batsman Prithvi Shaw is eyeing a comeback after serving a ban, and the 20-year-old is likely to turn out for Mumbai in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. Shaw was handed a back-dated eight-month suspension on July 30 for “inadvertently” consuming a cough syrup that contained a prohibited substance.
Shaw had a great start to his Test career but couldn’t keep the momentum when his tour of Australia was cut short due to injury.On Saturday, Shaw shared a video of himself practising in the nets. “I turn 20 today. I assure it will be Prithvi Shaw 2.0 going forward. Thank u for all the good wishes & support. Will be back in action soon,” Shaw wrote.
Shaw impressed when he scored a ton on Test debut against West Indies, following with a half-century in his second Test. — IANS
