By Chaitanya Laxman

Young Indian opener Prithvi Shaw had a spectacular start to his Test career as he smashed  a hundred in his debut innings and also bagged the man of the tournament award. The opening batsman now wants to chase bigger goals and infact wants to win the world cup for the team.

Want to keep winning matches for India: Shaw

The young opening batsman said that he would like to continue his good performance and would like to keep winning matches for India. He also mentioned that he wants to win the World Cup as well for the team.

Everyone is like a family; there is no senior or junior: Shaw

When asked about his experience of playing against the Windies, the right-hand batsman said that it was a happy moment for him and finishing the game for India means a lot for him.

He noted that it is his first series, so winning 2-0 and winning the Man of the Series makes it all the more special.

He was also very content with the team atmosphere. He explained that everyone is like a family in the team and there is no senior or junior. The opening batsman believes that it is a great journey and he is looking forward to a lot of it.

At the same time, he admitted that he doesn’t know what is happening next, and he just wants to enjoy this moment.

What lies ahead for Shaw?

Prithvi Shaw has for now confirmed his place in the Test team as an opener and will surely play in Australia. His performance in the Australian tour will decide his future. At the same time, it will be interesting to see how the selectors deal with Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan who are currently dropped from the team.

In the shorter format, the task is tougher for Shaw as the current opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma is at their peak. Plus the team has plenty of options in the form of KL Rahul and Ambati Rayadu as the third opener.
