The young Indian opener, Prithvi Shaw has made an incredible start to his Test career. In the first innings of India’s opening Test in Rajkot against the Windies, Shaw reached his maiden century and eventually went on to amass as many as 134 runs from 154 balls with the help of 19 boundaries. He eventually was dismissed by leg-break bowler Devendra Bishoo.

Following his knock, legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar said that Shaw has given an answer to the critics who doubted his ability to translate his incredible numbers at the domestic circuit in international cricket. Shaw made his first-class debut against Tamil Nadu in Rajkot and he scored a brilliant hundred. Furthermore, the pugnacious potential racked up a ton in his maiden Duleep Trophy appearance.

As quoted in TOI, Sachin said, “I’m sure it must be extremely relieving that he’s been able to get a big score in his first outing. A big question mark always is ‘a guy has done well at the domestic level, now will he be able to do the same at the international level?’ However talented the guy is, there is always a question mark. And a century kind of seals it. The figure is magical.”

Tendulkar also reckons Shaw has the knack of adapting well. Moreover, he threw light on Shaw’s ability to adjust in different conditions and mentioned that attribute as one of Shaw’s strength.

The master blaster explained, “If you want to succeed at the international level you’ve got to be a fast learner. And Prithvi is a very good learner. When somebody has to perform and sustain at this level, and play cricket at different conditions across the world for a long time to come, adaptability becomes the critical factor. I feel he has the knack to adapt to different situations and conditions. To me, that is Prithvi’s biggest strength.”

After Prithvi Shaw scored the century, Tendulkar also dropped a message for him on Twitter and asked him to continue playing fearless cricket. The second Test is scheduled to be played from October 12 in Hyderabad and Shaw would be keen to replicate his form in the upcoming match as well.
