- Keeps the same strength as Rohit Sharma
New Delhi: Rohit Sharma was recently appointed as the new captain of Team India in all three formats. He is considered to be the best batsman even than Rohit is a great captain. Rohit is the only batsman in the world to have three double centuries in ODI cricket. But Rohit is currently 34 years old and he can announce retirement in a few years. In such a situation, the team will need another deadly opener like him. There is already a 21-year-old batsman who can replace Rohit.
- This batsman will become the new hitman
Let us tell you that Rohit Sharma is 34 years old at this time and after this age, most of the players say goodbye to international cricket in a few years, in such a situation, Team India will need a new opening batsman in place of Rohit. Young batsman Prithvi Shaw can handle this responsibility. Even though this batsman may not have got many opportunities in the team, but the whole world knows that this player is the future of the Indian team in the coming times. The whole world has heard the echo of the sensation that Shaw’s bat has spread. This batsman of only 21 years is known for winning the team in a few overs.
- Bat bites ruckus in IPL
Prithvi Shaw rocked the IPL 2021. Shaw’s bat has given a lot of runs last season and this is one of the big reasons that Delhi Capitals topped the table. Together with Shikhar Dhawan, he fiercely caused pain in the heads of the opposing teams. Shaw scored 479 runs in just 15 matches this year. Shaw himself has been compared to great legends Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Brian Lara. In such a situation, India has got its strong opener in the coming time.
- Under-19 team won the World Cup
India has also won the Under-19 title once under the captaincy of Prithvi Shaw. When India’s young stars defeated Australia in the 2018 Under-19 World Cup final, Shaw was the captain of that team. Stars like Shubman Gill and Shivam Mavi were also part of the same team at that time. In such a situation, it is also clear that Shaw is a better batsman as well as a good captain.
- Opening in the absence of Rohit
Prithvi Shaw often takes charge of opening for Team India in the absence of Rohit Sharma. Earlier this year, Shaw was dropped from Team India due to poor performance, but he once again returned to India’s Test and limited overs team on the basis of his excellent game. The bigwigs of cricket believe that every shot in Shaw’s book is what inspires him to become the fastest opener in the world.
