New Delhi: After more than 20 years of serving to Indian cricket Sachin Tendulkar has retired from the game. Master blaster Tendulkar is still considered as a god of India cricket. Barley any record we remember that he left for the future generation to break. Another local boy from Mumbai is going on the foot-step of Sachin. Prithvi shaw,18, who had appalled everyone in 2013 with is 546-run inning in the first class cricket is in the news again. Prithvi recently hit his fifth first class cricket century against karnatka at the tender age of 18. Before him, Sachin Tendulkar had scored seven century before attaining the age of 18.

Sachin and Prithvi are both blaster

Career graph of Prithvi is similar to the legend Sachin Tendulkar in many ways. Prithvi made his first class debut in 2017, when he got a chance to play in the semi-final of Ranji Trophy. Like Sachin Tendulkar Prithvi too hit a century in his very first match of Ranji Trophy. He earned another distinction in the Duleep Trophy where he scored century in his debut match. Sachin had scored 100 both in the debut match of Ranji and Duleep trophy. Right hand batsman and right-arm off-spinner, Prithvi Shaw has the same zeal that Cricket Pandits had seen in the Sachin Tendulkar in 80’s. In Mumbai, Prithvi Shaw plays for Middle Income Group (MIG) Cricket Club.
