It was a nightmare day for the Indian team to think off, all they can do is just think about the process and move stronger. Management will be in a major concern over their decision on the inclusion of Prithvi Shaw in the test squad. He has given his best many times but now it is like he has just lost his spark from the red ball cricket. The first opening test series seems to be disappointing for Shaw as in the first innings he gets out for a golden duck whereas in the second inning he scored four runs. The performance from his side is just made everyone devastated.
To state his performance, Former cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar has gave a bold statement over him.
The visitors was never in the game from the second inning, they totally outplayed from the Mighty Australian pace attack. There were no players who could even manage to stand on the pitch and fight back. In the mix up of swings and pace eventually made visitors boat to sink.
Even Micheal Clarke commented on Shaw batting performance.
“He does not commit his front foot to the line of the ball leaves a gap between bat and pad a lot. That is where Australia should target him,”.
With this statement by Michael Clarke, Sunil Gavaskar also gave a bold statement on Prithvi Shaw stance
“Prithvi Shaw has technical problems, should be dropped in the next Test and he wants Shubman to cover Shaw for the next test match,”.

Many cricketing legends also want Shubman to debut for the visitors and they think with his presence team might cover for good prospect.
As with the absence of Virat Kohli from the next three tests matches, Ajinkya Rahane will lead the Indian team and the management have to just look into the batting order for the strength. They have plenty of options like Shubman Gill, KL Rahul for the second test. One have to replace Kohli whereas other has to definitely replace Prithvi Shaw for the next playing XI for the second Test match against Australia.
