The Indian top-order batter Prithvi Shaw is rearing to go in the English County One-Day Cup starting from the 1st of August.

The explosive right-handed batter has played 53 List-A games in which he has scored 2627 runs. Not to mention his first-class records are also quite impressive as he averages above 50 with 3802 runs in 44 matches.
