Prithvi Shaw yesterday termed his journey from Virar to Mount Maunganui a "difficult" one and said words can never express the emotions that he felt while guiding the Indian U-19 team to World Cup glory. "Becoming World Cup captain I can't express in words the feeling," said Shaw, who guided the Indian team to its record fourth World Cup title after beating Australia at Mount Maunganui in the final. "It was a difficult journey for me starting where I used to live in Virar. All credit to my dad he was the only who took me (everywhere). He used to take me to matches practices and it was far away from my home in Virar." Shaw will join his Mumbai teammates on Wednesday for the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy.
