In a one of a kind interview, Under-19 Skipper Prithvi Shaw on Sunday spoke exclusively to Republic TV’s Editor in Chief. Shaw, who first came into the spotlight at the age of 14, opened up about an array of troubles he faced during his childhood and how never allowed them to get in the way.
The cricketer shared insight into how he left no stone unturned in ensuring that he practised his best, while at the same time did not step back from his academics. Furthermore, in this video, Shaw also talks about the role his father played in his life and how ‘lack of sleep’ did not stop the father-duo from achieving their goals.
Shaw tells Republic TV,
“When I was small, I never understood where my career was heading. I was too small to make a decision or to ask my dad. But I think, my dad always knew that I have something in me with which I can do something for my school and my country.”
On speaking about how he maintained a balance between his cricketing career and academics, Shaw said,
"My dad is always strict about studies. Even if I get late from practice, I would have to study for an hour and complete all my homework.
