Prithvi Shaw is back to limelight in domestic cricket after the doping suspension has been pushed him under shadow.
When his doping ban ended on Friday, Shaw was included in the 15-member Mumbai team for the remaining games of the Syed Musthaq Ali T20 trophy. Shaw was handed an eight-month suspension by the BCCI for a failed dope test.
But, India batting coach Vikram Rathour feels that Shaw's return into the national team will depend on how he shapes up post his doping suspension. There were reports of the batsman losing focus during India’s last tour of Australia, where he got injured in a warm-up game.
With Mayank Agarwal making a brilliant start to his Test career and Rohit Sharma also revelling in the opener’s role, it could be a steep climb for the 20-year-old Mumbaikar.
As Shubman Gill being designated as the Indian team’s reserve opener, Shaw’s possibility of a comeback as an opener in the national team again worsens.
