#1 Prithvi Shaw

England U19's v India U19's - 5th ODI
Shaw captained the Indian team to U19 World Cup glory

The synonym of Prithvi Shaw is widely believed to be Sachin Tendulkar. His footwork and stroke play has drawn comparisons with the little master and that in itself is a massive feat for the Maharashtra lad.

Shaw was a popular figure even before his U19 days when he scored a mammoth 546 as a 14-year-old in a school game. Shaw also broke the master blaster's record for being the youngest player to score a century on Duleep Trophy debut.

 Everything that Shaw touched, turned into gold as Shaw captained the Indian U19 team to World Cup glory. In IPL 2018, Shaw scored his first fifty against the Kolkata Knight Riders thus becoming the joint youngest to score an IPL fifty along with Sanju Samson.

He befriended his purple patch when he toured England with India A and returned with two centuries. His superhuman form prompted the selectors to draft him into the Test squad against England for the fourth and fifth Test.

All this and Shaw is still eligible to play for the Indian U19 team! Shaw’s habit of shattering records is very much evident and it is only a matter of time before he carries it into the International arena.
