After Smashing Record-breaking 244 Runs, Prithvi Shaw Ruled Out Of One Day Cup Due To This Reason

He also played a record-breaking 244 against Somerset. Yet, his impact went beyond his on-field performance. Teammates praised his dedication and passion for winning.

Head coach of Northamptonshire John Sadler expressed his disappointment over the omission of Shaw.

While talking to, he said,”In his short stint, Prithvi has made a huge impact on us as a club. It’s a huge shame he won’t be with us for the remainder of this comp.”

He also said that as Shaw is out of the tournament now, it is very hard to fill the void of this player.

“As well as his performances on the field he had a huge impact in our dressing room, Nobody wanted to win a game more than him and he really contributed to us doing so. We wish him well and hope to see him scoring runs again soon,” Sadler further stated.
