Former India pacer Irfan Pathan lauded Shaw for his technique and claimed the young batter reminds him of Virender Sehwag.

“Shaw’s technique is amazing. He has this high backlift, which is very beautiful and that’s how he generates such great timing. He reminds me of Virender Sehwag. There is always a glimpse of Sehwag when he plays those square cuts, those pulls and those straight drives,” he said.

“He makes even the best of deliveries look bad when he hits those boundaries beside mid-off, going on the backfoot. I think there are a handful of batsmen in today’s time who can play shots like him. He is one of the most exciting batsmen in limited-overs to watch. He is capable of scoring runs at a healthy strike rate even under tense situations. He is a perfect hitter,” he added.
