Leave Prithvi Shaw alone, give him some space to grow: Virat Kohli

Leave Prithvi Shaw alone, give him some space to grow: Virat Kohli

Hyderbad, Oct 11 (UNI) Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Thursday demanded 'some space' for the 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw, asking that the talented batsman be left alone, whose batting has drawn parallels with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.

Shaw had a smashing Test debut against the West Indies team, hitting 134 off 154 balls in the 1st Test played at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. The performance earned the batsman the Man of the Match award in just his first Test outing as India quashed Windies by an inning and 272 runs.

Reacting to the comparisons and frenzy, Kohli on the eve of second Test said, "I don't think he should be rushed into anything yet because you need to give a youngster a space to grow, in his own abilities. This guy is supremely talented and he has got great ability as everyone saw."

"We definitely think he (Shaw) has it in him to play at the highest level and he can repeat what he did in the first game. He is a very keen learner, a sharp guy. He understands situations well. We are all very happy for him," he added.

The skipper scored his 24th hundred in Rajkot where he ran nearly 100 runs (99) in singles and doubles.
