Ricky Ponting Backs Prithvi Shaw To Replace Murali Vijay In Boxing Day Test


“I think it’s got to be Murali Vijay who goes,” Ponting told cricket.com.au.

“It was probably a bit of a bat-off coming into the series between those two. I saw him (Shaw) out in the outfield today hitting a few balls, starting to look like he’s getting around a bit better and with 10 days to go before the next Test you’d think he’ll come back in. So I think it’s got to be Vijay that goes out,” Ponting said.

In the three innings of the two Tests, Vijay has scores of 11, 18 and zero and on all three occasions he has got out to left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc.

Praising the effort of the 28-year-old Australian pace spearhead, Pointing said that credit needs to be given to Starc.

“We saw him get out twice in Adelaide to very similar shots; two balls from Starc that just pushed across, didn’t swing back in and he nicked both of those and he got the other one today that comes back through the gate. Give credit to Starc for the way he’s bowled to him,” Ponting added.

Although, India lost both the openers cheaply in the first innings, Virat Kolhi (82*), Ajinkya Rahane (51*) and Cheteshwar Pujara (24) helped India get back on track on Day 2.

The visitors ended the second day at 172 for three, trailing Australia by 154 runs.

Prithvi Shaw Celebrates India’s Win With Virat Kohli And Anushka Sharma


Prithvi Shaw, who suffered a ligament injury before the start of the first Test, celebrated India’s victory in Adelaide with skipper Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma on Monday. India beat Australia by 31 runs in the opening match to take a 1-0 lead in the four-Test series. Following India’s first Test win Down Under in 10 years, Shaw shared a picture on an Instagram story with Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, who will celebrate their first marriage anniversary on Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, the 19-year-old opening batsman resumed running in his battle to be fit for the second Test against Australia, starting on Thursday in Perth.

Shah landed awkwardly while fielding in a Sydney warm-up match against Cricket Australia XI. His left ankle was heavily strapped as he limped around the Adelaide Oval late last week.

But on Monday he was spotted jogging around the sidelines, although still wearing a protective brace.

The Indian camp still rate him an unlikely starter for the second Test in Perth starting on Friday, with a return in the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne more likely.

“With youth on his side there might just be a case where he might recover quicker,” Indian coach Ravi Shastri said last week.

“We’ll make a call as and when we get closer to Perth.”

Shaw was set to open the batting alongside either KL Rahul or Murali Vijay in Adelaide. In his absence, those two were paired together. Rahul made 2 and 44 while Vijay could only manage 11 and 18.

Prithvi Shaw Likely To Return For India vs Australia 3rd Test, Says Ravi Shastri


Prithvi Shaw was ruled out of India’s first Test against Australia in Adelaide after hurting his ankle while trying to take a catch against Cricket Australia XI last week. The 19-year-old appeared to have rolled his left ankle attempting a catch on the deep mid-wicket boundary. Prithvi Shaw, while attempting to catch a big hit from opener Max Bryant, landed awkwardly with his left ankle bending 90-degrees inwards underneath him, and he tumbled to the ground and over the rope. The visitors are hopeful that the 19-year-old will be fit for the second Test in Perth from November 14, but India coach Ravi Shastri said the Boxing Day Test is a more likely return.

“It was heartbreaking to see him go down,” Shastri was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

“But the good thing is he’s recovering quickly. He’s already started walking. Hopefully if we can get him to run a bit by the weekend, that’s really good signs.

“With youth on his side there might just be a case where he might recover quicker.

“We’ll make a call as and when we get closer to Perth.”

Virat Kohli announced his 12-man squad while addressing the media in Adelaide on Wednesday, with Hanuma Vihari and Rohit Sharma set to compete for the one spot.

India have never won a Test series on Australian soil and enter the series as the No.1 Test team in the world.

India XII: KL Rahul, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma

Australia XI: Marcus Harris, Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Travis Head, Tim Paine (c,wk), Pat Cummins, Mitch Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood (vc)

Michael Vaughan Backs Rohit Sharma To Replace Prithvi Shaw For India vs Australia 1st Test


Prithvi Shaw, while attempting to catch a big hit from opener Max Bryant, landed awkwardly with his left ankle bending 90-degrees inwards underneath him.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that Shaw had “hurt his left ankle” and had been ruled out of the first Test against Australia.

“Shaw underwent scans this morning and the reports revealed a lateral ligament injury. Shaw will be unavailable for the First Test against Australia in Adelaide. He will undergo an intensive rehabilitation program to hasten the recovery and be available for selection at the earliest,” the BCCI said in a release.

Prithvi Shaw grabbed eyeballs when he scored a sensational century on debut during the first Test against the Windies in October.

The stylish right-hander once again proved his credentials by smashing a 69-ball 66 on Thursday in the ongoing four-day practice match against Cricket Australia XI.

It still remains to be seen whether Rohit Sharma would even getting into the Indian playing XI for the Adelaide Test.

Rohit has played just three Tests in Australia, scoring a total of 173 runs at an average of 28.83.

In the past year, Rohit Sharma has played just two Tests for India — both away to South Africa. The right-hander managed a total of 78 runs in the first two Tests and was dropped for the final Test following his underwhelming performances.

Prithvi Shaw Suffers Ankle Injury, In Doubt For Adelaide Test


Virat Kohli’s Team India suffered a big injury scare on Friday when young batting star Prithvi Shaw hurt his ankle while trying to take a catch against Cricket Australia XI and had to be carried off at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The 19-year-old appeared to have rolled his left ankle attempting a catch on the deep mid-wicket boundary. Shaw, while attempting to catch a big hit from opener Max Bryant, landed awkwardly with his left ankle bending 90-degrees inwards underneath him, and he tumbled to the ground and over the rope.

Shaw, who scored a sparkling debut century in the first Test against the Windies in October, immediately grabbed his left ankle and medical staff rushed to help him off the field, casting doubt over his fitness for the opening Test against Australia in Adelaide from Thursday.

“The medical team is assessing Prithvi Shaw at the moment,” India’s cricket governing body tweeted.

“He hurt his left ankle while attempting to take a catch at the boundary ropes. Shaw is being taken to the hospital for scans.”

The right-hander, who scored a 69-ball 66 on Thursday, was seen as a certainty to open the batting in Adelaide next week.

Shaw hit 11 fours before he was bowled around his legs by CA XI leg-spinner Dan Fallins attempting a sweep shot that left him performing the splits on the pitch.

His participation is now in serious doubt, furthering India’s conundrum at the top of the order.

India batting coach Sanjay Bangar confirmed on Wednesday that one opening spot was up for grabs.

India vs Australia: Prithvi Shaw Slams Quickfire 66, Starts Australia Tour With A Bang


Team India’s new batting star Prithvi Shaw began his Australia tour on a bright note by hitting a 69-ball 66 on day two of the warm-up match between India and Cricket Australia XI. Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli and Hanuma Vihari too got half-centuries while KL Rahul failure to make any notable contribution. The 19-year-old batsman, who made his Test debut a month ago and marked the occasion with a century against the Windies, heads into the four-match series with a burgeoning reputation. There has been a plenty of hype around the right-hander and coach Ravi Shastri even went on to call the Mumbai batsman a combination of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Brian Lara. 

“He is born to play cricket” Shastri said after the Windies Test series.

“He’s a spectator’s delight. There’s a bit of Sachin (Tendulkar) there, a bit of Viru (Virendar Sehwag) in him and when he walks there’s a bit of (Brian) Lara as well.”

As far as the match is concerned, the hosts won the toss and elected to field.

As the first day of the match was washed off due to rain, the two teams came down for the toss 30 minutes earlier on Thursday. 

Rahul opened the batting with Shaw but was dismissed by seamer Jackson Coleman for just 3 runs with just 16 runs on the board. 

Shaw and Pujara then added 80 runs for the second wicket. Shaw, who hit quickfire 134, 70 and 33 not out in his first three innings in international cricket against the Windies last month, continued in the same fashion.

Shaw was dismissed by Daniel Fallins for 66. Skipper Kohli carried on to build the partnership with Pujara, who was dismissed for 54.

Vihari stitched an 81-run partnership with Ajinkya Rahane before being dismissed by D’Arcy Short for 53, just after Tea. 

Rahane continued to bat on with Rohit Sharma and took India’s total past 300 in the final session of the day.

The match does not have first-class status, and India have opted to make 14 players available for the game. 

India will play Australia in the first Test of the four-match series, starting from December 6 in Adelaide.

Rishabh Pant Criticised On Twitter After Posting Picture With Prithvi Shaw


India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant on Saturday faced heavy criticism for uploading a picture with Prithvi Shaw on his official Twitter handle. Flooding his comments section, seemingly irate users suggested he should concentrate on his game instead of uploading pictures. Some of them even went to the extent of blaming him for India’s narrow loss to Australia in a rain-hit 1st T20I match at The Gabba in Brisbane. “We lost 1st match coz of u only”, wrote a Twitter user on Pant’s comment section, while one of the users said, “Photo session band karo. Match finish karne ka try karo (Stop your photo session and try finishing matches)”.

After Australia put up 158/4 in a 17-over-a-side game, India were given a revised target of 174. India’s chances were boosted by Shikhar Dhawan‘s 76 off 42 balls, but once he was dismissed, the onus was on Dinesh Karthik and Pant. However, the left-handed batsman departed in an attempt to play a cheeky shot.

In the post-match conference, India captain Virat Kohli was of the opinion that Pant’s departure tilted the decision in favour of the hosts.

“It was a close game, was a see-saw battle. Started well with the bat, fumbled in the middle overs, in the end, we thought we’ll win with Pant and Karthik but it changed again with Pant’s dismissal,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.

In the chase, India could only muster 169/7, courtesy a magnificent last over from Marcus Stoinis.

With the 2nd T20I abandoned due to incessant rainfall, India will be looking to win the third match on November 25 and level the three-match series before the start of the four-match Test series.

The last time India toured Down Under, they had won the three-match T20I series 3-0 under the captaincy of MS Dhoni.
