New Delhi: Team India’s legendary opener Rohit Sharma is currently the best opening batsman in the world. There is no doubt that Rohit alone can change the face of the entire match on his own. But now slowly the age of Rohit is increasing and he can say goodbye to cricket in the coming few years. In such a situation, the biggest question will be that who will be the player in place of Rohit who will be able to take his place.
This batsman will handle the responsibility of opening
Let us tell you that Rohit Sharma is 34 years old at this time and after this age, most of the players say goodbye to international cricket in a few years, in such a situation, Team India will need a new opening batsman in place of Rohit. Young batsman Prithvi Shaw can handle this responsibility. The whole world has heard the echo of the sensation that Shaw’s bat has spread. This 21-year-old batsman is the future of Team India. Recently his batting has won everyone’s heart.
There has been a ruckus in the IPL
Prithvi Shaw has rocked this IPL season. Shaw’s bat has given a lot of runs this season and this is one of the big reasons why Delhi Capitals has emerged as a big contender for the title this year. Together with Shikhar Dhawan, he has caused pain in the head of the opposing teams. Shaw has scored 461 runs in just 14 matches this year. In the first qualifier match against CSK yesterday also, Shaw hit a fifty in just 27 balls. However, Delhi had to face defeat in this match.
Opening in the absence of Rohit
Prithvi Shaw often takes charge of opening for Team India in the absence of Rohit Sharma. Earlier this year, Shaw was dropped from Team India due to poor performance, but he once again returned to India’s Test and limited overs team on the basis of his excellent game. The bigwigs of cricket believe that every shot in Shaw’s book is what inspired him to become the world’s fastest opener.
Under-19 team won the World Cup
India has also won the Under-19 title once under the captaincy of Prithvi Shaw. When India’s young stars defeated Australia in the 2019 Under-19 World Cup final, Shaw was the captain of that team. Stars like Shubman Gill and Shivam Mavi were also part of the same team at that time.
