He is Sehwag’s successor in Indian cricket; Predictions come true !!

Who is the winner of the India vs. Sri Lanka match? From land grabbers Kuldeep Yadav and Yusvendra Chahal to undefeated running back Krunal Pandya from Sri Lanka. Ishant Kishan, who marked half a century in his debut, and skipper Shikhar Dhawan, who led the team to victory without being left out, and Suryakumar Yadav, who attacked, were the heirs of victory. But Prithviraj Shah’s performance goes beyond that.

Murali’s prediction

Before the first ODI, Muttiah Muralitharan from Sri Lanka described Prithviraj Shah as the successor to Virender Sehwag. Murali said Prithviraj has Sehwag’s hitting style. The young man showed it with 43 of 24 balls. Prithviraj Shah was the mainstay of Sri Lankan bowling training.
