Prithvi Shaw Will miss any further part in the ongoing one-day cup competition in England for Northamptonshire after injuring his knee while fielding in a match against Durham on Sunday.

According to a statement issued by Northamptonshire, the results of the scans showed that “the injury is much more serious than initially expected”. Shaw is currently being monitored by the BCCI medical team and is scheduled to meet a specialist in London on Friday.

Shaw made a big impact in his limited number of matches with the team, including two centuries in four innings 244 off 153 balls Against Somerset, the second highest List A score in England. He registered scores of 125*, 26 and 34 in his other three innings and became the leading run-getter (429 runs) after four matches.

Northamptonshire head coach John Sadler said in a statement: “In his short tenure Prithvi has made a huge impact on us as a club. It is a great shame that he will not be joining us for the remainder of this competition.” Will not stay.” “He is an extremely humble young man, he is very respected and very grateful for the opportunity to represent Northamptonshire.

“Along with his performances on the field, he had a huge impact in our dressing room. No one wanted to win matches more than him and he contributed to us doing so. We wish him well and hope We will see him scoring runs again very soon.”

The injury came at a somewhat troubled time for Shaw, who was looking for a reboot of sorts after a poor IPL 2023 where Delhi Capitals dropped him midway through the competition due to poor form.

Shaw last played for India in July 2021 but was recently part of the T20I squad for the home series against New Zealand in February this year. However, he was also dropped from India’s second-string T20I squad for Ireland and the Asian Games due to poor returns in the IPL.

Depending on how quickly he recovers, Shaw’s next assignment could be the white-ball phase of India’s domestic calendar, starting with the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (T20) in October, if he is required to play Irani for the Rest of India. Not selected in the team. Cup match against Ranji Trophy champions Saurashtra.
