India Under-19 cricket captain Prithvi Shaw and his boys are having a wonderful World Cup in New Zealand as after leading Inda to two consecutive wins, the under-19 boys seem to have taken a break from their hectic schedule and Shaw was seen enjoying his free time with a baby. Prithvi’s photograph with the baby has created a storm on the internet.

The official Twitter handle of ICC had uploaded two photos of Shaw with a baby and wrote, “India U19s star Prithvi Shaw shaking hands and literally kissing babies as he gets an early taste of fame at #U19CWC!”


The picture of Indian skipper was clicked during the match between South Africa and West Indies. A family among the spectators had requested Prithvi to hold and pose with their baby.

Prithvi had also shared this photo on Instagram.

Rahul Dravid’s boys were also seen supporting the Indian Hockey team in the on-going double-leg Four Nations Invitational Tournament. The Indian U-19 team witnessed India thrash Japan by 6-0 in the opening match.
