Prithvi Shaw had a memorable Test debut when he smashed a well compiled hundred against West Indies. He was expected to play a big role in Australia but an unfortunate injury in the practice game against Australia XI ruled him out of the four-match Test series.

Ahead of his possible return, he turned to Sachin Tendulkar for help. The youngster had a counselling session with former Indian skipper at his Bandra residence in a bid to regain complete focus, according to Mumbai Mirror.

Earlier, Sachin had praised Shaw and Gill and also insisted that they should enjoy cricket and focus on the game.

“I’ve spoken about Prithvi earlier as well, having watched him bat in the nets as a little boy, all of 8-9 years of age, he had something special even back then. I knew instantly that he would play for India,” Tendulkar had said.

When asked about his possible comeback, Shaw had told India TV that he is targeting Indian Premier League to get back into action.

“I will be fit before the Indian Premier League and I am trying hard to reach full fitness. I am working on my ankle as well as on my upper body,” Shaw had said.
