Prithvi Shaw Reveals How He Started Playing Cricket At The Age Of 3 On The Kapil Sharma Show

Prithvi Shaw was the captain of the Indian team that won the 2018 Under-19 World Cup.

While Prithvi Shaw is no doubt a brilliant cricketer, the 22-year-old is known to be the second-youngest Indian succeeding Sachin Tendulkar to make a Test century as well as the youngest Indian to do so on his Test debut. And while he has been the Captain of the Indian Team in the under-19 world cup, many do not know about his humble beginnings. On Sony Entertainment Television’s The Kapil Sharma Show, when the young cricketer graced the show with ace cricketer Shikhar Dhawan, he spoke about how he started his first innings in his cricketing journey at just the age of 3!

Host Kapil Sharma engaged with the cricketers in some fun banter and asked Prithvi Shaw if it is true that his father had admitted him to the Cricket Academy when he was only three years old! Confessing it to be true Prithvi Shaw said, “I started with plastic balls and then after one – one and a half years I moved on to tennis balls.” The host then asked if he understood the game at such a young age to which Prithvi replied, “No I did not understand the game. Whatever dad used to make me do, I used to follow. I started to understand the game when I was 6 or 7 years old. My dad had a liking for cricket. At that time, there was only one television set in our locality so my dad used to take me there. He was a big fan of Sachin Sir (Sachin Tendulkar) who was at the peak at that time, he still is even today. So, when he used to get bowled, he would go back home. He had such passion for cricket and so he wanted that I play cricket only.”
