Bangla Hunt Desk: India vs Australia day night test is going on in Adelaide. India captain Virat Kohli decided to bat after winning the toss in the first Test. However, the controversy erupted after the announcement of the first XI in this match. Prithvi Shaw, who is in the final off-form, was given a chance in the first XI, excluding Shubhaman Gill, who is in good form.
Before the start of the match, several Indian cricket experts and veteran cricketers claimed that they would like to see Shubhaman Gill in the opening match with Mayank Agarwal. However, the team management relied on Prithvi Shaw instead of Shubhaman Gill. However, Prithvi Shaw could not keep any value of team management.
In the first match, Prithvi Shaw was bowled by Mitchell Starc in the second ball of the first over of the innings and returned to the pavilion with zero runs. Similarly, another Indian opener Mayank Agarwal did not get a run in the first innings. He also went back to the pavilion bold. The way the two get out is the same. There was a lot of space between the bat and the pads of both of them and the Aussie bowlers took advantage of that opportunity. Former India opener and legend Sunil Gavaskar is very angry to see the Indian openers getting out like this. “It looks like the truck will melt between the pads and the bat of the Indian openers,” he said.
