India are currently playing the four-match Test series against Australia, which the visiting team is currently leading 1-0. The second Test at the new Perth Stadium is currently underway and Virat Kohli’s men are in a precarious position as they need 175 runs in their fourth innings with five wickets remaining. In the meantime, the team has been dealt with a body blow.
Prithvi Shaw, the right-handed batsman from Mumbai has been ruled out of the series owing to an ankle injury. The 19-year-old cricketer didn’t play the opening match at the Adelaide Oval and then didn’t play the ongoing encounter as well. Previously, Indian head coach and former cricketer Ravi Shastri mentioned that the management would take a call in Perth.
Prithvi Shaw ruled out
The third Test gets underway on Wednesday, December 26 and there’s still at a lot of time left ahead of the encounter. However, Shaw wouldn’t be able to make the cut. In the warm-up match against Cricket Australia (CA) XI at Sydney Cricket Ground, Shaw twisted his ankle at the boundary while fielding. Subsequently, he screeched in pain and had to be carried away.
He scored a breezy half-century in the first innings and was expected to wield magic in the red-ball fixtures. Unfortunately, that won’t be the case anymore and he would have to wait a tad longer for his next international appearance, much to his disappointment. The ongoing year has been a memorable one for Shaw as he started it by winning the U19 World Cup in New Zealand.
Thereafter, he flourished for India ‘A’ and also turned up with a few impressive knocks for Mumbai in the Vijay Hazare Trophy as well. As far as the Test series is concerned, Karnataka batsman Mayank Agarwal has been roped in as his replacement. In the meantime, Twitter is disappointed that Shaw won’t be taking any further part in the four-match series.

Sad we won't be seeing Prithvi Shaw in this series Down Under. Mayank Agarwal named replacement and should open in Melbourne.

@PrithviShaw getting ruled out is a big blow for India not, too sure about Mayank being a rookie coming to Australia for his first trip and straight away facing the new ball!
Hope Rohit and Mayank opens at the MCG though.
Have seen enough of @klrahul11 now #INDvAUS #AUSvIND
