Tendulkar praises teenage prodigy Prithvi Shaw

Tendulkar praised teenage prodigy Prithvi Shaw, terming the right-handed batsman a fast-learner.

Shaw made a dream debut to his Test career by slamming a hundred in the first Test against West Indies in Rajkot.

“I think I can talk about Prithvi. I have never given my opinion on selection whether who should be picked and who should be dropped. And I would like to maintain it that way, because that is like influencing the selectors to do something. But just if I have to look at Prithvi as a player, he’s progressed tremendously.

“I feel with the age he is only going to get better and better. So Prithvi is someone who will continue to perform well. Yes Australian trip is gonna be a good exposure to him. And whatever I have seen, he is fast-learner. So I see him ready for that.

“I think he (Shaw) has performed well in all formats. So he has performed well. So if you are not suited for all formats you can’t perform well,” said Tendulkar when asked whether he would like to see Shaw in ODIs.
