New Delhi: Former Indian fast bowler Zaheer Khan has said that Prithvi Shaw, who failed in both innings of the first Test against Australia, will find it difficult to make a place in the team in further matches. Shaw, bowled on the second ball of the first innings of the Adelaide Test match against Australia, went on to walk the pavilion cheaply in the second innings as well. He played just four balls in the second innings and once again bowled and returned to the pavilion. Questions have been raised over the inclusion of Prithvi Shaw in the playing XI. The talk of replacing in-form Shubman Gill and Lokesh Rahul in the team has been intensified.
On the second day of the Adelaide Test, Zaheer Khan told Sony Six - According to me, when you score runs, it goes in your favor. But when you are constantly returning to the pavilion, everyone raises questions. This is international cricket. Everyone is in a mood to criticize you by removing your shortcomings. Something similar is currently happening with Prithvi Shaw.
He said- I completely agree that Prithvi Shaw may have to stay out of the next Test. It may be difficult for him to make a place in this series now. After making such scores and dropping catches, it is difficult to play them further.
