I see more of Virender Sehwag in Prithvi Shaw: Brian Lara

In recent times, there are a lot of youngsters who have impressed us all with their performances and with no doubts, Prithvi Shaw is one of them.

Looks like the young opener has already won hearts of many legends. The Veteran West Indies Batsman Brian Lara said that Prithvi Shaw reminds him of Sehwag.

I see more of Virender Sehwag in Prithvi Shaw’s style of batting and think his maturity is amazing,” Lara told Star Sports Select Dugout.

Lara was impressed watching Shaw score a hundred on his Test debut in Rajkot last year. “I saw him play against the West Indies last October and he scored a lot of runs.

“It’s wonderful to see a young player on Indian soil doing so well. It was unfortunate that he couldn’t play in Australia because of an injury,” he said.

Shaw is only 19-years-old but with two seasons of the Indian Premier League under his belt, he is already a “senior player”, reckons Lara.

“I think he has been in the IPL for a couple of years and is a senior player already. A lot is expected of him, he is in a big man’s game now and has got to do what is necessary,” said Lara.
