The young cricketer would like to continue his good run of form and make a solid case for himself in front of the selectors head of the T20 World Cup.
“It’s fine now (about the blow to the helmet). Rahul sir didn’t say anything, I just went with my instinct and waited for the loose balls. Obviously wanted to keep scoreboard ticking and yeah. Pitch was very nice. First innings also was good but I think it got better in the second innings. Enjoy pace. Maybe after being hit on the head I lost a bit of focus,” Shaw said at the presentation.
