Team India made history when it won the U19 Cricket World Cup for a record fourth time in Mount Maunganui in New Zealand on February 3, 2018. The champion side was led by one of India's brightest young prospects, a kid born and bred in Mumbai, Prithvi Shaw, who first waltzed into the spotlight at the age of 14, when he entered record books in 2013 by scoring 546 runs - the highest score by an Indian batsman since 1901 - during a Harris Shield match at the Azad Maidan in Mumbai.
Prithvi, on Sunday, spoke exclusively to Republic TV’s Editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami, where he spoke about the glamour world, getting media attention and becoming a celebrity.
When asked how he would keep himself away from the glamour associated with cricket, Prithvi said:
“I don’t know. When you play well, when you achieve something, brands and companies approach you. My dad handles those things. I enjoy my cricket. I don’t like to get disturbed. I am mature enough to know if media comes, cameras come, how to be calm, how to be grounded. I am trying to not to go up, not to take my head up, always to be down.”
