The second wave of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has wretched havoc in India as the country is daily reporting lakhs of positive coronavirus cases. The situation in Maharashtra, in particular, isn’t ideal and the state is fighting a tough battle with the deadly virus. To curb the rapid spread, a strict lockdown has been imposed by the Maharashtra government, and people are no longer allowed to move freely within the state.
It seems that India’s young and dynamic opening batsman Prithvi Shaw isn’t accustomed to the rules laid out by the state government as he found himself having an encounter with Maharashtra police. Shaw has a lot of free time under his belt as the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was suspended after hosting just 29 matches. In addition, the 21-year-old hasn’t been selected in India’s squad for the final of WTC against New Zealand followed by a five-match test series against England.
Thus, the right-hander decided to go on a vacation to give a much-needed break to himself and enjoy some time off. Earlier this year, Prithvi featured in domestic tournaments including Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy followed by the Vijay Hazare Trophy. After the conclusion of domestic tournaments, he joined Delhi Capitals and played his trade for the franchise as their opening batsman in IPL 2021.
Prithvi Shaw encountered with Amboli Police on his way to Goa
With most of the international flights suspended due to Covid-19, Shaw decided to travel to the popular holiday destination Goa for the vacation. For the same, the young batter was driving to Goa via Kolhapur. However, he received a major setback when he was stopped by Police in the Amboli district and was asked to show his e-pass. Due to the lockdown, it is mandatory for the citizens to get the permission of the authorities before moving within or out of the state.
Shaw didn’t have an e-pass and thus despite his various pleadings the police didn’t allow him to travel to his destination. In the end, the batsman applied for an e-pass online through his phone and was allowed to move towards Goa only an hour later after he received the clearance.
