Young sensation Prithvi Shaw was spotted using a bat gifted by Shikhar Dhawan during an MPL match. Shaw is very close to Tendulkar and has been seen training under the watchful eyes of the little master. Due to a lot of similarities, like height, attacking style of batting, the same state and both the early starters, a lot of comparisons are often drawn between the two. Shaw who is a part of the North Mumbai Panthers franchise was seen using a bat gifted by Tendulkar as the signature was there and there was a special message for the young gun who is still taking early steps in cricket. With a pen, Tendulkar wrote: “You will be a legend one day”.
Here is the image of the bat posted by a fan who was present at the Wankhede Stadium.
It surely is a treat for fans. Shikhar Dhawan has a huge fanbase, whereas Prithvi’s fans are growing each day. Prithvi was also a part of the Delhi Capitals franchise during the recently concluded IPL. The Capitals had a very good season as they finished third in the league. Coincidentally, Shreyas Iyer, who is Prithvi’s captain in IPL, is also a part of the North Mumbai Panthers outfit.
Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw is not a part of the World Cup side and with India’s next Test assignment slated in August, the youngster has enough time to get among the runs and into the Indian side in whites.
