‘Ji Pandit ji…’ – Star Mumbai batter Prithvi Shaw slams a social media troll over body shaming comments



Star Mumbai batter Prithvi Shaw is currently out of the national team. Despite a decent performance in the London ODI Cup, Shaw failed to make a comeback due to an injury. Shaw is currently rehabbing and is far from cricket these days. However, recently Shaw gave a befitting reply to a troll on social media.

Shaw found himself in a body-shaming situation when a troll on Instagram asked him to transform his body like Virat Kohli. Reacting to one of his pictures, a troll with the username @innocentpanditxtylish asked him to stop caring about girls and focus on his body. He said, “A Prithvi bhai ldki vdki ka chakkar chod aur Kohli k trh apne body ko transform kar… Jo jo process usne kiya tha wahi kr.”

Responding to the troll, Shaw gave a witty reply and said that he would follow his advice. He said, “Ji pandit, ji jaisi aapki aagya. It’s worth noting that this is not the first time Shaw has been trolled for his body structure and weight. He has been consistently written off by national selectors, citing his poor form in domestic cricket. However, Shaw scored some centuries in the London Cup but unfortunately injured himself.

Does Prithvi Shaw require knee surgery?

Medical scans have revealed that Prithvi Shaw has sustained a Grade 2 PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) injury. While Grade 2 injuries show more promise compared to the more severe Grade 3, a reliable source familiar with the situation has illuminated that the batter’s injury doesn’t need surgery.

This injury left Shaw’s participation in the upcoming Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy in jeopardy. Currently, in the United Kingdom, the 23-year-old athlete is receiving treatment for his ailment. Encouragingly, several reports have suggested a potential earlier return to the field than initially expected, as he doesn’t require surgery.
