India’s legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar has endorsed talented youngsters, Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill to come good in times to come. Both the U-19 stars have made a name for themselves. Prithvi Shaw made a dazzling Test debut against West Indies. Shubman Gill also made his international debut recently against New Zealand though he failed in his first two international appearances.
“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 told Timesofindia.com.
“Shubman also played a crucial role in last year’s U-19 World Cup and has had a good domestic season, so both of them (Prthivi and Shubman) have a lot of potential. Having said that, these boys have just started playing for India and they should enjoy their cricket,” Tendulkar added.
