New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult has said that Prithvi Shaw has a promising career ahead of him if things go as are being predicted.

In awe of the youngster's talent, Boult was quoted as saying in an Indian Express report, “I heard he was 17, I couldn’t quite believe it. He played very nicely. I think the ball swung around nicely at the start, and it didn’t seem to trouble him. He’s probably one of many who has a promising career ahead of him, if all things go well. But very impressed from the first look.”

On the loss against BPXI, Boult explained, “It’s satisfying to re-familiarise ourselves with the conditions here. It was very hot out there this afternoon, but it’s disappointing to not come away with a win. Good opportunities to try different tactics in terms of a bowling plan.

“To come here and try bowl good line and length against some of the best players in the world is probably not the best recipe in getting them out. A lot of the credit goes to their openers for getting the platform for the rest. They put a very challenging total on the board. If you can get two or three down inside the first powerplay, it can really put a lot of pressure on the opposition and set up the game. But they played nicely,” he added.
