Master Blaster or God of Cricket or Sachin Tendulkar are the alternatives of the one person who changed the game of Cricket for India. The day, he announced his retirement from the International cricket, a void has been created.
A boy from Maharashtra scored a record-breaking 546 runs while playing for Rizvi Springfield. The same tournament that made Sachin a star in the 80s. He scored the runs just a week after Sachin took retirement.
Who is he:
He is Prithvi Shaw and is going to be captain of India in U-19 cricket world cup. When it comes the most number of hundreds in First Class game, Shaw is only behind Tendulkar.
Personal life and journey of cricket:
The young boy only at the age of 4 years lost his mother. But his father supported him in his journey and admitted him in the cricket academy. The boy used to wake up at 3 am to attend the cricket practice which was at 7 am. He was very hard working and he came in limelight after becoming the second youngest player to hit a century in Duleep Trophy. Here also he stood just behind Master Blaster.
As the Under-19 World Cup is a big deal for India and Prithvi Shaw is the hope of India.
