Shaw did not get a chance in Team India from 2021
Prithvi Shaw, who won India the Under-19 World Cup under his captaincy in 2018, also made his international debut in 2018 itself. He scored a century in his debut test itself, but at the international level his technique looked weak in front of the bowlers. He played the last international match against Sri Lanka in July 2021 as ODI and since then he could not play any match for India.
Shaw was included in the squad for the T20 series against New Zealand this year, but was not made a part of the playing-11 in the presence of Shubman Gill and Rituraj Gaikwad.
