Jaisi Aapki Aagya: Prithvi Shaw's Savage Reply To A Troll For Body Shaming Goes Viral
Prithvi Shaw is now out of action after suffering a Grade 2 Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) injury earlier this month while playing for Northamptonshire in the England Domestic One-Day Cup 2023. The 23-year-old Indian batsman joined the county club for the ongoing white-ball event and performed admirably.
Shaw recovered his mojo in the third match, which was contested on August 9 in Northampton against Somerset, after failing to achieve much in the first two.
The right-handed batter scored 244 runs off 153 balls in that game. It was his second double century in List A cricket and the sixth-highest score by any hitter in a 50-over game.
Shaw hit another century (125 not out from 76 balls) in the following match, which was contested on August 13 against Durham in Chester-le-Street, to assist his side clinch a six-wicket triumph.
Shaw's tenure was cut short due to a Grade 2 PCL injury, which thankfully does not necessitate surgery. According to sources, the former India U-19 World Cup captain is currently receiving treatment in the United Kingdom and will remain there for some time.
Shaw joined Northamptonshire after being passed over for the West Indies trip and the Ireland T20Is. The English club greeted Shaw by uploading a picture of him in the team's crest on Instagram before of their first match, and on that picture, a person attempted to insult Shaw by making a snide remark about his physical appearance.
Shaw, who is known for his scathing social media reactions, responded with an epic and suitable answer after advising him to focus on his fitness. Shaw's spectacular six-word response went viral on social media almost instantly.
This was not the first time Shaw had been criticised on social media for his physical looks. Ankur Warikoo, an author, mocked the Delhi Capitals star for his appearance a few days earlier. He did, however, eventually apologised for his "insensitive" post.
Shaw's performance on the cricket pitch has been hit and miss in 2023. On the one side, he scored 379 runs against Assam in the Ranji Trophy, the second greatest individual score in the tournament's history after his 244 in the England Domestic One-Day Cup 2023, while on the other, he only managed 106 runs in eight IPL 2023 matches.
