The Indian cricket team led by skipper Virat Kohli scripted another emphatic victory over West Indies with a margin of 10 wickets in a one-sided 2nd Test match on Sunday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium. Virat Kohli and team gave brilliant performances and finished off the game in three days only.
Recently, in an interview, Virat Kohli appreciated the performance of everyone, especially Prithvi Shaw, who made a brilliant test debut with this series. Virat Kohli was all praises for him and Rishabh Pant as well, he talked about Prithvi’s fearless attitude, he said :
“The youngsters, we were looking at them playing with a lot of freedom, which they did. Prithvi was outstanding, Rishabh was really fearless. Areas that they need to work on, they will obviously be spoken to but I think overall, both those guys were really good. The conditions were not as challenging as they might get in future but in Test cricket, the first and the most important thing is confidence and understanding that you can score runs at the Test level,”

Virat Kohli had a lot more to say about Prithvi Shaw, he said :
“It’s great to have someone who can get you off to the kind of start you require, specially make a mark in first series that you play. From that point of view, it’s great to have a guy who is so fearless. And he is not reckless, he is very confident about his game. You might feel that he will nick one now and then, but he hardly nicks the ball. That we saw in England as well. His batting in the nets, really attacking but in control. Rare control against the new ball is a great skill. None of us were even 10% of what he is when we were 18, 19. He has to build on that, but a guy coming and playing like that in his first series is a great sign for Indian cricket”
Well, we completely agree with Virat Kohli, Prithvi Shaw is sheer brilliance and he has a long way to go.
