Once tipped as the next big thing in Indian cricket, Prithvi Shaw was in the limelight again for all the negative reasons. As reported by the Times of India, a source close to the Mumbai team stated that Shaw's attitude and lack of discipline in the ongoing Ranji Trophy didn't go down well with the team manager. The source revealed:

"I wouldn’t like to cite particular instances though there’s a list of misconducts that have been reported. The last one was in Baroda. The Mumbai team manager was very angry and reported an incident. I wouldn’t like to get into details here but something’s very wrong. Someone needs to have a very clear and serious chat with him."

Shaw made a strong comeback post his doping ban but Mumbai's back-to-back defeats to Railways and Karnataka has revealed problems surrounding the talented batsman.
