Legendary Australian batsman Mark Waugh thinks that the technique of Prithvi Shaw is similar to Sachin Tendulkar. “The first thing you notice is his technique, it’s very similar to Sachin Tendulkar’s,” Waugh said in a media release.
“His grip, his stance, he stays very still at the crease and plays all his shots around the wicket. He plays the ball quite late and is quite punchy in his stroke play and has an excellent base to play any shot from any bowler. He’s just so much like Sachin Tendulkar,” added Waugh, who played 128 Tests for Australia and scored 8,029 runs,” he added
Waugh is working as a dugout expert and commentator with Star Sports.
Shaw slammed his maiden fifty in his second IPL match and became the joint youngest cricketer to score a half century at an age of 18 years old. The Delhi Daredevils opener has scored 140 runs at a strike rate of 166.66 in the four games.
