Prithvi Shaw was at his best during the first one-day international between Sri Lanka and India. He bagged the Man of the Match award for his 43 runs off 24 balls. Chasing 263 runs to win, Shaw and skipper Shikhar Dhawan got the visitors off to a flying start with a 58-run stand. While Dhawan scored an unbeaten 86 runs, Ishan Kishan accumulated 59 runs to help India chase down the target with 80 balls to spare.
Shaw was praised by many on social media and his 21-year-old’s rumoured girlfriend Prachi Singh also reacted to his match-winning innings against Sri Lanka. The actress took to her Instagram account to share pictures of the right-handed batsman in her stories. “The best,” she captioned the first post. “Well Deserved,” she wrote with a second picture where Prithvi was seen receiving the Man of the Match award.
India will take on Sri Lanka in the second ODI of the three-match series in Colombo on Tuesday (July 20).
