Prithvi Shaw Provides an Update on his Injury, Expects to be Back in IPL 2019
India’s National Cricket Team prodigy batsman Prithvi Shaw has provided an update on his ankle injury. Shaw expects himself to return to action in the upcoming Indian Premier League. The right-hander didn’t have the rub of the green on his side when he twisted his ankle while attempting to take a catch at the boundary ropes while playing against Cricket Australia XI.
Subsequently, the 19-year old was ruled out of the Test series against Australia. In fact, he would have been visitor’s first choice opener but it wasn’t to be the case.
Meanwhile, Shaw had an impressive start to his Test career as he scored a brilliant 134 against the depleted Windies side on his debut. He scored a total of 237 runs in the two-match series and was adjudged the Man of the series.
Shaw is going to be fit for IPL.
“I will be fit before the Indian Premier League and I am trying hard to reach full fitness. I am working on my ankle as well as on my upper body,” Shaw was quoted as saying by India TV.
Meanwhile, Shaw was looking forward to playing in the Australian conditions. Shaw’s game is suited to backfoot play and he would have loved playing in the Australian conditions. However, the youngster was unfortunate to miss out.
“It was an unfortunate incident and you can’t really do anything about that. It was my wish to play in the challenging conditions in Australia. I love the bounce there. But unfortunately, I suffered a leg injury. But that’s okay, I am very happy that India won the Test series. It can’t get better than this,” Shaw said talking about India’s victory.
Prithvi Shaw is one of the most talented players in the country and he will be looking to grab his opportunity with both hands. Shaw has a promising future and he will look to go the extra mile in his career.
He has been the cynosure of all eyes since his early days and he would like to prove his mettle at the topmost level. Meanwhile, Shaw is currently training at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.
On the other hand, Shaw also had an impressive debut in the Indian Premier League. The right-hander scored 245 runs in nine innings for the Delhi Capitals. Consequently, he will like to hit the ground running once again.
Meanwhile, India will take on New Zealand in five One Day Internationals and three T20Is after a successful tour of Australia.
