After the conclusion of T20I series against South Africa, the Men in Blue will take on Ireland under the leadership of Hardik Pandya, who made a comeback to international cricket during the Proteas series. Dinesh Karthik and Sanju Samson have managed to stage a comeback
However, Prithvi Shaw’s name is still missing from the squad. The right-handed opener played a couple of explosive knocks for Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League 2022. He last played for India in July 2021 during a T20I against Sri Lanka.
Shaw is leading Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy 2022. “It’s nowhere near my mind you know – comeback to the Indian team. Winning the Ranji Trophy is my top priority at the moment,” he said.
Since returning to Mumbai, he has hit two half-centuries. He believes a big knock is around the corner for him.
“Scoring a fifty is not enough and nobody congratulated me as well. I can’t think about myself as a captain as there are other players in the team. I can’t be selfish. The graph goes up and down in cricket and it doesn’t bother me too much. I will give my best for Mumbai.”
