Prithvi Shaw has been ruled out of the remainder of his stint with Northamptonshire.

Prithvi injured his knee while fielding in the fixture against Durham and subsequent scan results received this morning have revealed the injury is worse than initially expected.

“In his short stint Prithvi has made a huge impact on us as a club. It’s a huge shame he won’t be with us for the remainder of this comp.” Head Coach John Sadler said.

“He’s an extremely humble young man, he’s very respectful and had been so grateful for the opportunity to represent Northamptonshire.”

The 23-year-old departs as the competition’s current leading run-scorer having chalked up 429 runs across four innings including a record breaking 244 against Somerset.

“As well as his performances on the field he had a huge impact in our dressing room.

Nobody wanted to win games more than him and he contributed to us doing so.

We wish him well and hope to see him scoring runs again soon.”

Prithvi is now under the guidance of the BCCI and will see a specialist in London on Friday.
