Prithvi Shaw is grabbing the headlines from a very young age. The Mumbai youngster has been earmarked for greater success in the coming years. He first shot to limelight when he set a new record of 546 runs from 330 balls playing for Rizvi Springfield in a Harris Shield match. It was the highest score in Indian schools cricket before being surpassed by Pranav Dhanawade in 2016. The marathon knock, which lasted six hours and seven minutes, was studded with 85 fours and five sixes.

Shaw made his first-class debut for Mumbai in the semi-finals of the 2016–17 Ranji Trophy on 1 January 2017. He had gone on score a century in the second innings to bag the Man of the Match award. The right-handed batsman also scored a century in his debut match of the Duleep Trophy. He equaled the record held by Sachin Tendulkar, who had scored for the first time a century each in his debut matches of Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy respectively.

Shaw then led India to ICC Under-19 World Cup trophy and impressed in IPL and for India A which paved the way for his maiden Test call-up.

He went on to score a century on his debut before scoring a fifty in the following game against Windies. Shaw finished the series with 234 runs which was enough for him to earn the man-of-the-series award. The world would have loved to see him perform in Australia too but an unfortunate injury just before the series ruled him out.
