IPL 2019: There are shades of Virender Sehwag in Prithvi Shaw’s batting, says Brian Lara

Prithvi Shaw's phenomenal talent has been much talked-about and the latest to join the bandwagon is none other than Brian Lara, who has found shades of "Virender Sehwag" in Mumbai youngster's batting style.

Prithvi Shaw’s phenomenal talent has been much talked-about and the latest to join the bandwagon is none other than Brian Lara, who has found shades of “Virender Sehwag” in Mumbai youngster’s batting style.

Just like Sehwag, Prithvi is also a fierce cutter of the ball and his short-arm pull at times is a carbon copy of the ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’.

One of the greatest batsman to have ever graced the game, Lara was all praise for young Shaw’s approach.

“I see more of Virender Sehwag in Prithvi Shaw’s style of batting and think his maturity is amazing,” Lara told Star Sports Select Dugout.

Lara was impressed watching Prithvi score a hundred on his Test debut in Rajkot last year.

“I saw him play against the West Indies last October and he scored a lot of runs. It’s wonderful to see a young player on Indian soil doing so well. He travelled to Australia but unfortunately could not play, because of an injury,” he said.

He is only 19 years but with two seasons of IPL, he is already a “senior player”, reckons Lara.
