Young Indian batsman Prithvi Shaw, who recently returned to active cricket after serving a ban for ingesting a prohibited substance, has hit form already. In the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament, he scored 240 runs with three half-centuries. With the batsman in the news, how can the bat be behind?

BCCI tweeted a photo of Shaw’s bat, and it carried a message: “Dear Prithvi, enjoy the game. Good luck,” it said, with an autograph following suit.


Whose autograph was it, asked the BCCI, and it had Twitter divided. One half said it was clearly Virat Kohli, pointing out how Shaw uses the same bat brand as the Indian captain, while the other half thought it was Vinod Kambli, hinting at similarities in their signatures.

Who do you think congratulated Prithvi Shaw?
