Team India kicked off their one-day series against Sri Lanka in stormy fashion on Sunday. As the team lost the toss in the 37th over and crushed Sri Lanka, it showed its immense power. Batting first, Sri Lanka set a target of 263 for India, with India losing just 3 wickets. Young batsmen Ishaan Kishan and Prithvi Shah surprised everyone with their hurricane performance in the match. Shah scored 43 off 24 balls while playing in explosive fashion, while Kishan made 59 in 42 balls. Shaw was also awarded the Man of the Match award for his innings. Former Indian cricketer Akash Chopra was impressed by his innings and he praised this young opener.

Akash posted on his YouTube channel, ‘After the first innings, it seems that the momentum is with Sri Lanka, but Prithvi Shah came in the middle. He looked like a different level of player. I am a big fan of Prithvi Shah because you don’t see a batsman like him in all of India. Virender Sehwag was batting like this, but Prithvi Shah scored 43 off 24 balls and took no risk and played no punches. 2021 is completely under the name Prithvi Shah so far. His performance from the Vijay Hazare Trophy to the IPL and now here is amazing.
