Teenager Prithvi had a great start to 2018 where he became part of the Rs 1 crore club in the IPL auction. After that he was part of the winning Under-19 ODI World Cup team and hit a 94 against Australia and a couple of handy knocks in the semis and final. But the best was yet to come.
18-year-old Shaw became the youngest Test centurion for India with a brisk 134 off 154 against the West Indies at Rajkot. He was Man of the Match. In the second Test he hit a blistering 70 off 53 followed by 33*(45). He was Man of the Series.
A U-19 World Cup. Rs 1 crore-plus at the IPL. A fantastic Test debut. All in one year. And to think he missed the Test series in Australia due to injury!
