The 23-year-old Mumbai batter is consistently delivering in the domestic cricket for Mumbai for the last couple of months..

Indian Cricket Board has recently announced the squad of India A for two four-day matches against Bangladesh A. The Board announced this squad on Wednesday, the 23rd of November. Although, the Indian management is once again on the receiving end of harsh criticism and trolls from the cricket fans.

Fans are in anger at the Indian cricket Board as they overlooked the in-form Mumbai batter, Prithvi Shaw, once again even from the squad of India A. Earlier, the former selection committee led by Chetan Sharma ignored Shaw from the squad while they picked up the Indian squad for the ongoing tour of West Indies.

Indian cricket fans immediately took to Twitter to lash out at the Indian cricket Board for their reluctant attitude toward a young talent like Prithvi Shaw.

Here’s how fans reacted:

Apart from the multiple reactions from the fans, former Indian opener, and current commentator Aakash Chopra also praised the 23-year-old Mumbai batter for his amazing batting skills.

“The guy [Prithvi Shaw] is naturally destructive. He is disruptive. A lot of people turn back and say that he is not fit. I am saying check his numbers; he is the guy who just takes off,” said Chopra in a video on his YouTube channel.

“If you want a rocket start, he is an absolute rocked, he simply flies. I am not saying he will fly in every match. Buttler, Hales, or anyone else is also not seen flying in every match,” he added further.

Here’s a look at India A squad for both four-day games against Bangladesh A:
