The tour of New Zealand was nothing unusual for Team India’s young Prithvi Shaw. In his nearly two-year career, Prithvi Shaw has been in controversies regarding his fitness and dope test. Prithvi Shaw has told that the great batsman Sachin Tendulkar supported him in difficult times and guided him to return.
Twenty-year-old Shaw made a brilliant debut in Test career, scoring a century in a debut match. He became the second-youngest batsman to do so. He had to stay away from the playground for 16 months after failing an ankle injury and dope test.
Sachin Tendulkar Helped Prithvi Shaw
In such a situation, Sachin talked to Sav and helped to take his career in the right direction. Tendulkar said, “Yes, it is true. I have spoken to the Earth many times in the last few years. He is a very talented player, and I am happy to help him. I talked to him about cricket and life outside this game.
Sachin Tendulkar further said, “I believe that if any youth has approached me and asked for guidance, at least confidentiality should be maintained from my side.” In such a situation, I would not like to tell you which issue discussed.
Shaw recently revealed that Sachin Tendulkar supported him in difficult times. Tendulkar says that “If Shaw wants to tell, then it is his will, but does not tell about the players whom I help.”
Team India captain Virat Kohli also spoke to Sachin Tendulkar before playing the first-day night test. Virat Kohli became the first Indian player to do this feat in Day Night matches by scoring a century in this match.
