India and Northamptonshire batter, Prithiv Shaw has sustained a Grade 2 injury while playing in the UK.

Moreover, this year hasn’t been very kind to the 23-year-old as he was riddled with injuries and controversies of all sorts.

That’s why he has missed much of the cricketing season as well. He did show some improvements in the County Championship, but that too got robbed from him.

Meanwhile, his contract with Northamptonshire came to an abrupt end after he sustained a Grade 2 injury.

While the treatment options were being discussed, it became clear that Shaw would continue to stay in the UK and get treatment for the same.

The initial reports were not in Shaw’s favour and surgery was looking imminent for him. However, recent scans have removed all possibilities of surgery.

But, he will have to miss the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy as well.

Furthermore, the BCCI were also contemplating on bringing Shaw home and placing him at the National Cricket Academy.

Source reveals Shaw’s exact condition and what are his next steps

Meanwhile, a source has revealed that Shaw will not be requiring any surgery as per the latest reports.

The injury does look bad but not as bad as Grade 3 so the young batter should be back soon.

The result of the scans has revealed that it’s a Grade 2 PCL injury. Grade 2 is not that encouraging but still better than Grade 3. Things were initially not looking good for Prithvi but Grade 2 injury and no need of surgery means he should be back on the field soon. Initially, we thought he could return to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) or home in Mumbai but he will be there in the UK for some time at least.
