Prithvi Shaw thanked his fans and mentor who showed support to him throughout his career after his memorable Test debut for India. Shaw reached his hundred off just 99 balls to surpass the record of Abbas Ali Baig. He fell for 134, including 19 fours, as India ended up on 364-4 at the end of first day's play.
In the video shared by BCCI.tv, Shaw read out the tweets from cricketing legends for him.
Responding to Virender Sehwag's tweet, Shaw said he used to love the former Indian opener's attacking batting. The next was VVS Laxman who was glad seeing a bright future of Indian cricket. The 18-year-old thanked him and said he always admired Laxman's ability to patiently bat for hours.
Shaw has played with Rohit Sharma and his tweet did make him smile. "Shaw what a show," Rohit had written after the youngster's hundred.
Later in the video, the Mumbai batsman responded to Sachin Tendulkar's tweet where he asked him to continue batting fearlessly. Shaw thanked Sachin for all his tips during initial days in his cricketing career. The opener assured that he won't let him down.
Shaw also read Zaheer Khan's tweet in the end. He said Zaheer's first spell gave him a lesson that we should give our everything from ball one.
