Pritivi is a friend of arjun Tendulkar. Wow seems like Shaw had great connection from young age .


goggerei

Yep, he was earmarked for success from a very young age and got noticed by Sachin at CCI. Guy also has an interview with Hussain from that time.


rcarlyle68

There used to be a cricket documentary on NetFlix made after India's 2011 WC win. It shows Shaw and his dad, sitting in their room and talking about his cricketing aspirations. Can't believe Shaw has aged so rapidly in just 10 years! The film also shows the guy who paints himself in India colour and has Gandhi get-up - I think his name is Sudhir or something. He biked from his village in Bihar to Mumbai to watch the WC final.


goggerei

I watched this video on YouTube about him many years back and it still feels incredible that he has fulfilled his promise so far: https://youtu.be/YhhYFlWMx7M

Afaik prithvi Shaw was famous even when he played school cricket as he was the best player in the best school team. Especially after that 500+ in Harris shield(in 2012 ig). He and Arman Jaffer used to absolutely spank everyone while playing for Rizvi.


SuperfluousMainMan

Exactly. People forget he once had the world record for the highest score in a school tournament match.


rockbese

Their whole team was like that. Even jaffer has a 450+ in Harris. I remember once they had a corner pitch at Azad maidan and while they were batting almost every over some Batsman used to smash the ball into the neighbouring building. Some rizwi players were told to stand in that building to return balls XD. It was so funny watching the ball get lost every alternate over as if it was gully cricket.


mentalvortex1

Yup, that Rizvi team was stacked with Shaw, Sarfaraz and Arman Jaffer. I read an interview with their school team coach some time ago. According to him, Jaffer was the textbook batsman, Sarfaraz the most inventive and Shaw was the prodigy who could pick up any shot instantly.


sudipto4

How do you guys know all this? It's really interesting getting to know about these things. Like a character's origin story lol.


mentalvortex1

Haha. To be honest, I used to travel within city for internship/college and had time to read lot of local newspapers (TOI, Mid-day, DNA etc.) on train/buses. They would cover lot of Mumbai cricket and have interviews, features and match scores.


asaCreh

We read the back page of the newspapers first in those days


dadish-2

Mid-day Lots of articles following local Mumbai tourneys https://www.mid-day.com/sports/other-sports/article/rizvi-skipper-prithvi-shaw-cracks-174-in-harris-shield-final---148812 Harris shield, MCA tournaments and Kanga League


AverageBrownGuy01

Atleast when I was actively reading newspapers, you'd see such news on sports pages(side columns mostly) everyday. I've seen many big names rise from such side columns over the years. Being from Indore, I've seen Awesh Khan in the newspapers for years. 7-8 years back, him and one of my classmate were sent to Dubai to play some league. Awesh used to take a lot of wickets in those district tournaments (circa 2014-15). I had to double check when I got the news that he's selected for IPL.


asaCreh

There's a beautiful pic of the three together .


theaguia

What happened to arman?


sarvesh_s

Arman is in the Mumbai Ranji Team, iirc he scored a century in Mumbai's last match against Odisha before Ranji was paused for IPL


rockbese

He has played for India A. I wonder how cool it would be if sarfaraz,prithvi and Arman end up playing together for India. How rare would that be, the same 3 players who have played for school state and national together.


SBG99DesiMonster

Prithvi has been well known since his childhood coz he was a prodigy. This is from 2011 ofc, but I have been seeing his name do the rounds since 2013 I think. He was breaking age group records from a very young age.


mrfreeze2000

Mumbai is like that. So many of these young batsmen get discovered early and then senior batsmen from Mumbai tend to take them under their wings Happened with Sachin too when Gavaskar mentored him at an early age


JontyJonty32

Let’s give him all the credit he deserves, though. IIRC he is from a lower middle class family in Thane, commuted down every day to play cricket, and only got to sit next to Arjun Tendulkar because of his talent.


asaCreh

It's a tradition in Mumbai school cricket . Sachin , Kambli did it . Then Sarfraz and then Shaw . All child prodigies . Got the attention at a very young age.


BoredBurrito

Random, but this post prompted me to look up his [Cricinfo profile](https://www.espncricinfo.com/player/arjun-tendulkar-1148776) and I saw that he's currently 22y 222d old.


asaCreh

Richie Benaud would be proud


Matt-MattOMatt

I noticed the other day that Google has him as 32 for some reasond

The loyalty for MI deserves him a game this season.

Shaw looks a lot like Dibyendu Bhattacharya or as if he is his son.


lowkey_sapien

Why is he wearing Mumbai Indians jersey at a WC match? edit: I meant the cap


reymysterio7

Because the Indians were playing at Mumbai. Duh.


GullibleAd8342

Thanks for the clarification arjun


Signal_Discipline_36

>Why is he wearing Mumbai Indians jersey at a WC match? He is wearing India's Jersey though 🤔. Did u mean Mumbai Indians **Cap** ?


jithization

Because it's Mumbai 'INDIANS'.


teleportfax

Because he wants to


Karna1394

Because that's what he was asked (forced) to wear by his father's PR team

lololol


--I-love-you-

Prithvi was destined to be at Mumbai Indians.. Really wish it had been him in the place of ishan kishan


livelifereal

Yea why don't you just take everything?


sarvesh_s

I mean he was dominating maidans of Mumbai, hailed as the next big thing from the city. It's MI's fault not going for him in the auctions


--I-love-you-

nah trent boult was nough


lightt77

Iyer, sarfaraz khan and yashasvi jaiswal too


mentalvortex1

I agree. I would like see more local talent picked in the team.


No_Media_3717

How abt risabh and warner?? Make the top 7 Warner shaw rohit sky tilak pant pollard


sarvesh_s

Rishabh has no connect to Mumbai. Shaw is Mumbai's captain.


No_Media_3717

Whoosh...


sarvesh_s

I know what you were going for there but you don't understand the feeling of a Mumbaikar who follows the domestic team seeing your captain play for the opposite team 😅 although I do cheer for him when he isn't playing us


Beneficial-Neck1743

Make good use of Brevis. Ponting will mentor Prithvi Shaw better than Sachin.


--I-love-you-

Lol we seeing that


Beneficial-Neck1743

Yeah, atleast, it's better than someone who doesn't believe in passing his craft to next generation. Sachin was the world's best player in the last few decades but maybe he is not the one who could guide others (you see Mahela being the main coach of MI and wasn't even a fraction of Ponting in terms of captaincy)


agentD10S

Sachin was world's best player that doesn't mean he would be best coach... And he probably won't coach any other team than India(& maybe Mumbai Indians) and we already have dravid and Mi(Jayawardene) Man spent his 20 years working( with tons of criticism, praises,controversies etc) let him live in peace and enjoy his retirement.


Beneficial-Neck1743

Yeah that is my point. Every body have their own craft. Coach might not be Sachin's cup of tea. Just heard from DC players who mentioned Ponting is a great coach. I was just so impressed and inspired by his speeches that he gives in the huddle to the DC team (posted on DC's instagram).

Prithvi aged 20 years in 10


PrithviMS

I can imagine Shaw supporting Mumbai Indians as a kid but now he has to play against them. Same goes with youngsters like Jaiswal, Gill etc. How would it feel to support a particular team as a kid only to get picked by a different team in the auction and having to play against the team you rooted for as a kid.


lavdalasoon9

The fact that Prithvi clearly didn't do age fudging and still looks like 40 at 22 is even sadder


BasedGod96

Wtf Shaw is only 22? All this time I thought he was 30. He looks much older
