Pritvy Shaw is one of the best young baseball players in India. However, since his debut in 2018, the young drummer from Mumbai has not had the opportunity to do so. He started for a century and became the second junior centurion in the history of Indian cricket. But then he was injured and suspended because he failed the doping test.
At that time Shaw showed that he had the support of the former Indian drummer and his youth idol Sachin Tendulkar. He has also recently admitted that he has spoken to Prithvie Shaw several times over the years. Sachin congratulated Shaw on describing him as a very talented player and also noted that he helped the young player solve problems on and off the field.
Yeah, it’s true. Over the years I’ve had many interactions with Pritvy. He’s a very talented player and I’m glad I can help him. I told him about cricket and life outside the cricket field, he was quoted in the Times of India.
Sachin Tendulkar keeps catprivate
When asked what was discussed, Sachin Tendulkar replied that it was confidential. He said he wouldn’t reveal it because he felt it was important to keep the conversation between him and the youth player a secret. He went on to say that if Shaw wanted to reveal it, that was his decision and there was no problem.
I believe that when a young man comes to me for advice, he should have the element of confidentiality on my side. So I don’t want to tell you what I’m talking about. That’s good. If Prattvy wants to talk about it, that’s his decision, the 47-year-old said.
Sachin Tendulkar also said he was still open to the idea of teaching the young man how to play. It is interesting to note that he also mentioned that he spoke to many people individually and accompanied them. I have spoken to many young people and guided them on an individual level. I’ve made the point that I’m always open to the idea if anyone thinks I can help manage their game, said the master sprinkler.
