Flamboyant Indian opener Prithvi Shaw has stated that he won’t be making any adjustments to his game ahead of his county stint with Northamptonshire. Shaw, who has been out of the Indian cricket team set-up, sees this upcoming opportunity as crucial for rejuvenating his career.

“I don’t think it will be the right time to make any adjustments to my game now,” Prithvi Shaw expressed. “Whatever adjustments I had to make to my game, has already been done. Once I go there and get my eyes set, I just need to play my natural game,” he told Cricbuzz.
Having traveled to England since a young age and spent considerable time there, Shaw feels comfortable in the country and enjoys being there. He shared his affinity for the place, saying, “I’ve been going there since I was 12 years old… I like the country and people there. They are very nice, I like to spend time over there. I have got the opportunity to go over there and express myself.”

When it comes to playing in English conditions, Shaw has prior experience as both a young player and with India A. He is well acquainted with the pitches and conditions, having scored plenty of runs for India A in the country. Shaw mentioned, “I’ve been going to England since I was a little kid… I’m well acquainted with the pitches and conditions there. I had scored a lot of runs for India A as well.”
However, Shaw acknowledged that it might take some time for him to adjust to the culture of Northamptonshire, as it is a new team for him. Despite the unfamiliarity, he has been in touch with them and appreciates their warm welcome. Shaw is hopeful that this stint will be a positive experience for him.
“This is a new team for me. I’m not aware of what their culture is like. It might take some time to get set to that. I’ve been in touch with them and they have been quite welcoming towards me. So I’m hoping it will be a good experience,” Prithvi Shaw added.
