Prithvi was born in a very poor Hindu family. His entire family worships Hindu deities and also believes in Hinduism. Prithvi Shaw’s father’s name is Pankaj Shaw, a petty cloth merchant, and his mother’s name is not known. In the year 2003, when Prithvi was just 4 years old, his mother died. Apart from his father, there are no siblings in his house.

Prithvi Shaw’s Life Struggling Story:

Prithvi Shaw’s family is originally from Gaya in Bihar, although now in 2021 his family has become completely Maharashtrian. Many years ago, in search of livelihood, his father had settled in Maharashtra from Gaya. Prithvi was born in Virar, Maharashtra. From the age of three, Father Pankaj developed an interest and love for cricket in Prithvi’s heart and mind.

When he was just 3 years old, his father enrolled him in the Cricket Academy of Virar. When Prithvi turned 4 years old, the lap of his mother’s love was snatched from him. Then his father used to do clothing business. After the death of his wife, the challenge of raising a son had come in front of him. On this, Pankaj also stalled his business for some time.

Along with looking after the son at home, the father used to support him in his cricket practice. As a child, Prithvi used to play cricket with his friends and father Pankaj at the beach near JW Marriott where his father used to bowl for him. At the age of 11, when Prithvi got an offer of cooperation from a company, his family settled in Mumbai from Virar.

Prithvi made his first-class debut for Mumbai against Tamil Nadu in January 2017. He won the man of the match title in his very first Ranji match. They also participated in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. In the same year, he also became the captain of the Under-19 cricket team. India also won the Under-19 World Cup on 3 February under the captaincy of Prithvi Shaw.

After this, he got a chance to play a Test match for the Indian team against West Indies in the year 2018. He made history by scoring a century against West Indies in his debut Test match. Now he has become the first Indian batsman to score a century in his debut Test at a very young age. If today Prithvi Shaw has emerged as the youngest star of cricket, then his father has the biggest role in it.

Prithvi Shaw himself has expressed this thing on social media. He expressed the importance of a father in his life by putting a picture on Father’s Day. According to Prithvi, “The biggest gift my father gave me was his trust in me”.

Talking about the marital status of Prithvi Shaw, he is unmarried. If rumors are to be believed, the name of his so-called girlfriend is Prachi Singh who is a television actress. The rumored relationship between Prachi Singh and Prithvi Shaw first came into the limelight last year when Prachi commented on a picture shared on Instagram by the 2018 ICC Under-19 World Cup-winning captain Prithvi Shaw.

Even in the year 2021, when Prithvi Shaw played a brilliant inning against Sri Lanka in Colombo to give India a lead in the five-match series, his alleged girlfriend actress Prachi Singh also reacted after the game. Prachi had shared a story on Instagram praising his rumor. The first image of the story featured Shaw’s figures from the match and commentary, which read, “The best”.
