Twitterati React After Prithvi Shaw Got Out For Duck In First Innings

Yes, Shaw didn’t have a great time in the practice games, as he ended up scoring 0, 19, 40, and 3.


On the other hand, Gill outscored Prithvi Shaw and other contenders to grab the opener’s slot. Shubman Gill’s amazing performances during the two practice games had of the four-match Test series against the Australian cricket team made him the frontrunner to partner Mayank Agarwal as India’s opener for the first test. Gill started off poorly with 0 and 29, however, in the second practice match, Shubman scored 43 and 65 runs.

However, the team decided to go with Prithvi Shaw, who once again failed to give the best of his capabilities.
