Prithvi Shaw has been included in the Indian team after a long gap. He has performed well in domestic cricket and earned his place in the squad. The U-19 winning captain reflected on his debut and journey so far in International cricket.
Prithvi talks about his first call-up
“Wearing the Test cap was a proud moment for me and wearing it was a different feeling. I always wanted to play Tests for India. The first-call up was really special. There were ups and downs these few years. But you learn something from it. I worked hard and tried to be as cool as possible. Getting the process and routines right,” said Shaw while talking to BCCI.tv.
Shaw talks about his technical issues
“I played five Tests and was off for a while. I had some technique issues that people talked about and I felt its presence too. I earlier used to bat for 40-45 minutes in the nets. Then after this, I started to bat as much as possible, like for a couple of hours with my coach, trying to get my technique right,” he further added.
Prithvi talks about his tough few months
“It has been a tough journey in these 18 months. There were people who supported me throughout my career, who stood besides me in this phase and kept supporting me even when I was not playing for India. Rahul sir (Dravid) and Paras sir (bowling coach Paras Mhambrey) have been there for me since I was 16. It feels nice to know that they are doing pretty well now,” he added.
But Shaw is happy to be back and be a part of the team.
“It has been long since I was a part of this team, but I am happy to be back. My dad and everyone were happy because this call-up came after a long time. I really worked hard for it,” said Shaw.
