In 2013 Prithvi Shaw played for Cryptics Vs. Middleton Stoney Cricket Club in Oxfordshire. He opened the batting and scored 68 in under 10 overs before a change of pace in English conditions led to his dismissal, caught off the bowling of Professor Paul Wordsworth. In this time, his opening partner had reached just 7 runs. He also bowled, taking 3 wickets for 1 run in 5 overs and completed a run out.


Quote from Donald Macleod, who umpired on the day: "I umpired that match and he was undoubtedly the best 13 year old I had ever seen, so much so that I wrote his name down at the time. He was outstanding."
