Prithvi Shaw, aged 18 years, has emerged as the youngest Indian to win the Man of the Series award in Test Cricket history.
Shaw made his first international debut on 4 October 2018 and became the second-youngest Indian after Tendulkar to make a Test century and the youngest Indian to do on Test debut.
He earned another distinction by scoring a century in his debut match of the Duleep Trophy and equalled the record held by Sachin Tendulkar who had scored for the first time a century each in his debut matches of Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy.
In December 2017, he was named captain of India’s squad for the 2018 Under-19 Cricket World cup.
Shaw led India in the final where they beat Australia by 8 wickets to win their fourth Under-19 World Cup.
