Fit-again Prithvi Shaw trains with Sachin Tendulkar
From the Webdesk, 08/11/2018, Mumbai

 Teenage opener Prithvi Shaw, who began his career in style by scoring a hundred on his Test debut against the West Indies at Rajkot last month, has begun training again after recovering from an elbow injury during the Deodhar Trophy recently. And preparing him for the forthcoming Australian tour is batting legend Sachin Tendulkar.

According to sources, Shaw trained for an hour at the MIG Club in the city on Tuesday, and that too with a rubber ball.
"Tendulkar, Prashant Shetty and Jagdish Chavan all gave throw-downs to him at MIG for about an hour. Tendulkar and Chavan gave throw-downs to him with a wet rubber ball on a tarpaulin (used to protect the wicket against rain), in order to prepare him for the Australian tour. Because of Prithvi, Tendulkar came about an hour early to MIG (the batting great is running the Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy at MIG).

"Tendulkar was sharing a few tips with Shaw about batting in Australia too. Shaw has begun his routine by batting against the rubber ball on Monday and practiced on Wednesday (Diwali) too," a source told TOI on Wednesday.

India is watching Prithvi Shaw and hope he plays for the country and not selfishly for his own records . He appears to be best batsman in the making and also hope he stays humble and NEVER BECOMES arrogantRene Fernandez
Because of his injury, Shaw missed Mumbai's Ranji Trophy opener against Railways in New Delhi from November 1 to 4. The 18-year-old was struck by a short delivery off Deepak Chahar while batting for India A in the Deodhar Trophy. Apparently, the 18-year-old was hit on the same spot during the second Test by a Windies pacer.


Shaw is set to tour New Zealand with the India A team in the next few days under the captaincy of Ajinkya Rahane before joining the Indian team for the Australian tour.
