India’s youngest Test centurion on debut, Prithvi Shaw, said after achieving his grand feat that he was ready for a debut under much more challenging conditions in England.
“It was captain and coach’s decision. I was ready in England as well but finally got the opportunity here,” Shaw said in a PTI report.
“But it I was a great experience in England. They made feel really comfortable. Virat bhai told me there is no senior or junior in the team. It was nice sharing the dressing room with players who have played international cricket for more than five years. Everyone is a friend now,” he went on to add.
Shaw admitted that he was nervous at the start but spending time in the middle settled his nerves. “I was nervous at the start but settled down after I timed a few nicely. After that, I didn’t feel the pressure that I felt at the start of the innings. I like to dominate bowlers and that is what I was trying to do, waiting for the loose balls,” he added.
