5 sacrifices endured by Prithvi Shaw and his father that helped him earn his India cap
#2 Journey from Virar to Bandra
Prithvi's father woke up at 3:30 am everyday and made breakfast for his child. At 4:30, the father and son duo left Virar to practice at MIG grounds in Bandra. While doing this, Prithvi used to sit on the shoulders of his father, so as to avoid himself from getting crushed by the peak hour crowds in the local trains of Mumbai.
While Prithvi practised all day, his father stood under the shade of a tree and observed his son's game, while sometimes making trips to local markets in order to find the best available cricketing gear for his son. After practising all day long, they returned home in the evening, ate a humble meal of roti with aloo ki subzi or anda ghotala, and lights were off at 9:30 pm. This happened day after day for years until Prithvi earned his first scholarship.
