Prithvi Shaw skips team training due to an injury scare before they face the New Zealand team in another Test match.
Two days before the Test match against the Black Caps in Christchurch, Indian opener Prithvi Shaw happens to be absent on the team training. As it had turned out, Shaw suffered from a swollen left foot which may complicate his chances of playing for the match.
Shaw will undergo a blood test on Thursday to determine whether or not he’ll be available for the upcoming second Test match. Should he be ruled out of the match due to his injury, Shaw will be replaced by Shubman Gill.
However, Men in Blue captain Virat Kohli remains confident that Shaw’s destructive ability will come good for the team if he is fit to play.
Shaw’s injury scare added to the pressure that the Men in Blue are feeling after they had suffered a 10-wicket loss against New Zealand. After that loss, the Men in Blue are more eager to have a strong comeback to redeem their reputation of being No.1 in Test matches.
The second Test match will wrap up the entire India Tour of New Zealand 2020 which had been ongoing since January. The last leg of the tour will take place from February 29 until March 4 at the Hagley Oval where the odds are -119.05 for the home team and +102 for the visiting team.
