Hailed as the next big thing in Indian cricket, Prithvi Shaw's career seemed to have hit a screeching halt after the Board of Control for Cricket in India handed him an eight-month ban for an 'inadvertent' doping offence last month.
The unwanted development has reportedly left the 19-year-old, who also took full responsibility for unknowingly consuming the banned anti-asthma drug -- Terbutaline, devastated.

Meanwhile, the BCCI released a detailed time-line for Shaw's doping controversy on Wednesday, covering events from late February to July this year.
The Mumbai cricketer claimed that he had consumed a basic, over-the-counter cough syrup, when he was suffering from a severe cough and cold during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Tournament on February 2019.
He has played two Test matches for India scoring 237 runs with a hundred and a half-century. He had earlier pulled out of India A's One-Day and unofficial Test series against West Indies A reportedly due to injury.
