It is known that young batsman Prithvi Shaw has lost form and has been away from Team India for a long time. In this background, he recently entered the counties with the aim of gaining form and returning to the Indian team. He played for Northamptonshire as part of the Royal One Day Cup in England. He scored 429 runs in four matches. It is noteworthy that there is also a double century.
In the first two matches, he scored only 60 runs and was disappointing. And in the remaining two matches, this 23-year-old boy brought out another aspect of himself. He scored a double century (244 runs off 153 balls; 28 fours, 11 sixes) against Somerset on 9 August. Four days later, on August 13, he scored another century against Durham. In this match, he scored 125 runs off 76 balls and won his team single-handedly. It has 15 fours and 7 sixes.
The management is expecting more sensational innings from Prithweesha who is in fierce form. He also thought that he should continue the same momentum and pave the way for re-entry into Team India. But Chandanga said that if he thought of one thing, destiny thought of another. Unfortunately, Shah injured his knee. This happened while fielding in a match against Durham on 13 August. At first the injury was thought to be minor. But scanning revealed that the injury was more serious.
Although the management of Northampton did not like this, Prithvi Shah was released from the team. This was disclosed by the official Twitter account of the team. ‘It is really sad.. Prithvi Shah will not be available for the next matches of the Royal London ODI Cup. Shaw was injured while fielding during the match against Durham. We wish Prithvi Shah to recover quickly and score more runs.
Prithvi Shah played four matches for Northamptonshire in the Royal London ODI Cup-2023. He scored 429 runs with the help of a double century and a century in 4 matches and became the leading run scorer. Prithvisha, who is currently in London, will be examined by a specialist doctor under the auspices of the BCCI on Friday to examine the severity of the injury.
