Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw’s recent fight viral video controversy has been making headlines. The young batter was part of the Indian cricket team’s tour of New Zealand for the T20I series, but he couldn’t secure a spot in the playing XI as the management persisted with Shubman Gill. Shaw had previously represented India in 2021 against Sri Lanka, but there have been reports that the player is quite irregular and lacks discipline.
Recently, Prithvi Shaw was spotted in Mumbai’s Oshiwara area, where he was having dinner with his friend Ashish Surendra Yadav at a 5-star hotel. While there, fans approached him and requested selfies, which he agreed to take. However, when he stated that he was with his friend and simply there to eat, the fans became agitated. This led to an unfortunate incident where the fans smashed the front and rear windows of Yadav’s car.

As a result of the incident, a case has been registered against eight individuals for damaging the vehicle. A video has also emerged showing Prithvi Shaw holding a stick while one girl accuses him of assaulting her. The girl, identified as Sapna, alleged that Shaw had hit her with the stick. She was taken to the Oshiwara police station, but there are reports that the police were not allowing her to seek medical attention.
It remains to be seen how the Oshiwara Police will handle the situation, but it is clear that this incident could have serious consequences for Prithvi Shaw’s career. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has a strict policy regarding player behavior, and with Shaw’s previous disciplinary issues, the incident is likely to be taken seriously. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah and President Roger Binny are unlikely to tolerate this type of behavior, and it could damage not only Shaw’s reputation but also the reputation of the sport itself. As cricket is considered a religion in India, such incidents can have far-reaching consequences.
