India are up against Australia in a four-Test series for the border-Gavaskar Trophy. The first day-night Test in Adelaide saw India getting off to a shaky start, losing the openers for cheap, while young opener Prithvi Shaw was dismissed for an unlucky duck.
Young Indian opener, Prithvi Shaw's poor-run in the Tests continues, as he was dismissed for an ill-fated duck on Day 1 of the opening day-night Test against Australia, at the Adelaide Oval, on Thursday. He was cleaned up by seamer Mitchell Starc on the very second ball of the game, with no score on the board for India.
It was the first time that he had fallen for a duck in the format, while he has failed to score even 20 on four occasions in the last five innings. Naturally, fans were not happy with the 21-year-old lad, as they took to Twitter to slam his poor run, despite getting off to a promising start during his initial Tests. Here are some of the tweets:
Two different batsmen !! Two different approaches to weather the new ball !! Shaw tries to push & Pujara waits for it 🙂— D I N A K A R (@Mr_GopalBtech) December 17, 2020
