India's youngster Prithvi Shaw has credited Sachin Tendulkar for improvement in his batting. He said Sachin comes to watch his net sessions and the legendary cricket has often passed on helpful advice to him.

“Whenever Sachin sir is in Mumbai, I try and meet him. If I am practicing and Sachin sir is free, he just comes to the nets and gives advice,” Shaw said as per Times of India.

“Whenever I feel any discomfort with batting, or need any advice, he is someone who is always there for me. He has told me to feel free about calling or messaging him anytime. He has helped me a lot during my journey,” he added.

Shaw didn't forget to mention Rahul Dravid's name who helped him in getting stronger mentally. Shaw had led India's Under-19 team under the coaching of Dravid.

Being a disciplined sportsperson himself, Rahul sir talks about those things. I have really learned a lot about the mental aspect of the game from him. A lot of things that I have learned in the past three-four years during my Under-19 World Cup journey as well as India A are down to him,” Shaw said.
