India youngster Prithvi Shaw, back from a eight-month suspension, slammed a half-century for Mumbai in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy.

Prithvi scored 63 of just 39 balls against Assam on Sunday.

After completing his fifty, Shaw raised his bat and was seen making a gesture of ‘let my bat do the talking’.

“Welcome back! He is making a comeback today and @PrithviShaw makes it a memorable one with a fine-half century for Mumbai against Assam in @Paytm #MushtaqAliT20,” BCCI’s Domestic handle tweeted.

Earlier in July, BCCI has suspended Prithvi Shaw for doping violation.

“Prithvi Shaw, registered with Mumbai Cricket Association, has been suspended forva doping violation. Shaw had inadvertently ingested a prohibited substance, which can be commonly found in cough syrups,” BCCI had said in a release.

BCCI had collected urine sample of Prithvi, from which they had recovered Terbutaline.

The statement also added that BCCI were satisfied withthe explaination given by Shaw that he had taken Terbutaline to treat a respiratory infection.

“On July 16, Shaw was charged with the commission of an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) under the BCCI Anti-Doping Rules (ADR) Article 2.1 and provisionally suspended pending determination of the charge. Shaw responded to the charge by admitting the ADRV but asserting that it was inadvertent, being
caused by his ingestion of the over the counter cough syrup he had taken for his cough,” it had added.
