Prithvi Shaw is known for his aggressive batting at the top order in international cricket. Recently the opening batsman tried his hand at bowling too and bowled some overs in the practice match against Australia A. When the match at SCG was heading towards a hard-fought draw, Shaw had some fun and bowled some traditional leggies.
The part-time bowler delivered an absolute ripping leg-spinner delivery that defeated everyone. Shaw who was bowling to centurion Wildermuth beat him all ends up which had everyone shocked. The delivery of Shaw pitched around leg-spin that turned a mile and defeated both the batsman and keeper Wriddhiman Saha.

Meanwhile, Shaw will be disappointed with the way he batted in both the practice matches ahead of the Test series against Australia. In the 4 innings, Shaw could only score a total of 62 runs which is a major sign of worry for India. Team India was hoping that Shaw found his form in the two matches and he can open alongside Mayank Agarwal in absence of Rohit Sharma.
However, after looking promising in the initial phase of all his knocks, Shaw gifted his wicket away. Now, it will be interesting to see whether team India decides to play Shaw in the opening Test or give a test match debut to Shubman Gill at the top order. The first match of the Test series between India and Australia will be a day and night fixture that will begin at Adelaide from December 17.
