5 Batsmen Who Can Hit A Century This Year:
Prithvi Shaw produced a brilliant display of batting in the recent Vijay Hazare Trophy 2020-2021 and his performances could earn him a spot in the Indian limited-overs series again. He lost his place in the Indian test team after a string of poor failures and was dropped from the Indian squad post the Australian tour.
The youngster came back to the domestic circuit and took over the captaincy responsibilities for the Mumbai team in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. He finished as the top run-scorer in the tournament with 827 runs at an average of 165.40 and broke a lot of records including the highest individual score in the tournament with 227 not out. He is expected to get out of the screws and hit a century for Delhi Capitals this year.
