Young Shaw has been living with the comparison for a while now. Shaw and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/sachin-tendulkar" target="_blank">Sachin Tendulkar</a> have a lot of similarities in their stance and strokeplay. Like Tendulkar, Shaw shot to fame into his teens. He was only 14 when he belted 546 in a school match. <p></p> <p></p>The 18-year-old from Mumbai has had a rollicking start to his IPL career. On Wednesday, Shaw played a crucial role in Delhi Daredevils (DD) win against Rajasthan Royals (RR). Opening the batting, it was his 25-ball 47 that set up the platform for DD in the rain-marred tie. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ipl-2018-dd-beat-rr-amidst-rain-breaks-keep-playoffs-chances-alive-708040"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p>Shaw has also been compared to Brian Lara for his backlift and Virat Kohli for his cover driving. Earlier in the tournament, Shaw became the youngest to score a fifty in IPL history. In the 4 games that he has played this season, Shaw has piled up 140 runs at 35 and his strike rate reads 166.67. <p></p> <p></p>His striking has been a treat to sore eyes. He has looted runs via proper cricket shots. Twitter world exploded on Wednesday night and they could not help comparing the two little men. <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="en">My mom just asked pointing Prithvi Shaw- who's this short guy with MRF bat!

DD now have bagged 3 wins and moved to the sixth spot in the points table.
