Barely a week before leaving for New Zealand with the India A team, Prithvi Shaw hurt his left shoulder while fielding during the Ranji Trophy match between Mumbai and Karnataka on Friday.
The incident happened in the third session at the Bandra Kurla Complex ground when Shaw dived to save an overthrow. He was immediately taken off the field.
Shaw is named in the India A squad for the upcoming New Zealand tour and the team leaves on January 10. He is there in the limited overs as well as the squad for the four-day matches to be played there.
At the end of Day 1 in the match between Mumbai and Karnataka, Karnataka trail by 115 runs. Suryakumar Yadav (77) was the top scorer for Mumbai, while Shaw scored 29.
After the day’s play, Mumbai skipper Suryakumar Yadav said Shaw looked better.
“He (Shaw) looks better. Looking at him on the ground, it was not looking good but now I think he is looking good. Later on I will get to know from the physio on what exactly the situation is (with regard to him),” Surya told reporters after the match.
A source from the Mumbai team said as a precautionary measure, Shaw underwent an MRI scan.
