Mumbai, November 9: Young batsman Prithvi Shaw is eyeing a comeback and the 20-year-old is likely to turn out for Mumbai in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. Shaw was handed a back-dated eight-month suspension by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on July 30 for "inadvertently" consuming a cough syrup that contained the prohibited substance terbutaline.

Shaw had a great start to his Test career but couldn't keep the momentum going ahead after his tour to Australia was cut short due to injury. On Saturday, Shaw shared a video of himself practising in the nets. "I turn 20 today. I assure it will be Prithvi Shaw 2.0 going forward. Thank u for all the good wishes & support. Will be back in action soon," Shaw captioned the video. Prithvi Shaw Likely to Return for Mumbai Squad Just One Day After His Doping Ban Ends, to Play in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2019–20.

Shaw has played two Tests for India. He impressed in his debut series against the West Indies, scoring a ton on debut in Rajkot and half century in the second and final Test of the two-match series in Hyderabad.
