Mumbai, 3rd May (CRICKETNMORE): Former Australian International Cricketer Mark Waugh who is in India as an expert for IPL was all praises for the young talent of Delhi Daredevils, Prithvi Shaw, comparing the youngster to the cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar.

Talking about Prithvi Shaw’s batting technique, Star Sports Select Dugout expert Mark Waugh said: “The first thing you notice is his technique, it’s very similar to Sachin Tendulkar. His grip, his stance, he stays very still at the crease and plays all his shots around the wicket."

"He plays the ball quite late and is quite punchy in his stroke play and has an excellent base to play any shot from any bowler. He’s just so much like Sachin Tendulkar.”

Shaw has been a key figure in Delhi Daredevils’ hope of resurgence this season scoring 140 runs at a strike rate of 166.66 in the four games he has played so far. Shaw, aged only 18 years 174 days hit a maiden half-century in only his second match of the IPL.
