Prithvi Shaw was stopped from travelling to Goa without an e-pass

On Wednesday, Indian opener Prithvi Shaw was stopped by authorities for driving without an e-pass in a Maharashtra hamlet. According to investigators, Shaw was on his way to Goa for a holiday.

A police officer claimed on Friday that India batsman Prithvi Shaw was detained on his route to Goa in the Maharashtra district of Sindhudurg for traveling without an E-Pass. According to the source, the event occurred on Wednesday morning near Amboli as the young player was driving to Goa in his automobile. After receiving a permit, he was enabled to go. Shaw, who had returned to his birthplace of Mumbai after the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches were postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, claimed he was traveling to Goa for holiday.

In order to limit the second wave of the pandemic, the Maharashtra government has made it obligatory to get a travel pass. Shaw had requested an E-Pass but had left for Goa before it was approved. According to the official, he merely had a token issued against the application. After being halted by authorities in Amboli, he reapplied for permission online and received it within an hour. According to the official, he was then allowed to proceed.

The 21-year-old opener was passed over for the Test series and World Test Championship final. Shaw was a part of the Test crew in Australia, however, he was dropped after the first Test in Adelaide. Shaw’s name was not mentioned during the selection meeting on Friday, according to reports.

Shaw, on the other hand, returned to form, albeit in white-ball cricket, scoring a record-breaking 827 runs in Mumbai’s title-winning effort in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021. Shaw maintained his strong form in the IPL 2021, scoring 308 runs in eight matches for the Delhi Capitals.
