Recent medical scans have unveiled a Grade 2 PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) injury affecting Prithvi Shaw. While a Grade 2 injury poses challenges, it offers a more hopeful prognosis compared to the more severe Grade 3.

A trusted source familiar with the situation has shared this development, shedding light on the current state of Shaw’s injury.

Prithvi Shaw’s current season has been a whirlwind of successes and setbacks, resembling a rollercoaster ride. Amidst these fluctuations, he has encountered difficulties in regaining his top form for a significant portion of the season.

As a consequence, he has been under close scrutiny from both fans and analysts. Despite showcasing moments of brilliance during his stint in the County Championship, his performance trajectory was disrupted due to an unfortunate injury.

The setback occurred while Shaw was representing Northamptonshire, leading to the discovery of a Grade 2 Posterior Cruciate Ligament injury through diagnostic scans. This injury now raises doubts about his participation in the upcoming Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Currently in the United Kingdom, the 23-year-old athlete is actively undergoing treatment for his condition. Encouragingly, several reports suggest the possibility of an earlier return to the field than initially anticipated.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is closely monitoring Shaw’s recovery progress and envisions his eventual return to the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Despite this, Shaw is set to remain in the UK for an extended period, continuing to receive comprehensive medical attention.

“The scans have revealed a Grade 2 PCL tear. While a Grade 2 injury is not the most favorable, it is certainly a more positive outlook compared to Grade 3. Initially, things looked concerning for Prithvi, but the absence of surgery in a Grade 2 injury indicates a potential swifter return to the pitch. While we initially expected his return to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) or his residence in Mumbai, his stay in the UK will be extended,” revealed a well-informed source familiar with the situation.
