Why put guys like prithvi Shaw and baheer into the u19 team even if it’s for a World Cup? Prodigious talents like that often can be hindered by going back to u19 cricket.

Shaw was killing it in the ranji trophy then they made him play the u19 challenger trophy and assigned him captain of the u19 team for the WC and then they put him back in for Mumbai for an important match where he got out cheaply, coincidence maybe but it also could be the gulf between u19 bowlers and atmosphere and ranji trophy bowlers and atmosphere.

Baheer averages like 120 in FC cricket and he’s been named in the WC u19 squad for Afghanistan and he’s missing FC cricket because of it.

A kid like breetzke I understand, he’s dominated at u19s but he’s still trying to find his way at the FC open level but guys like Shaw, Gill, Baheer should not be dropped back down to u19 level imo.
