Indian Test Opener Prithvi Shaw has replied to all the trolls around him with a cringe quote on Instagram. The batsman has scored 0 and 4 respectively in the first and second innings of the Adelaide test. This led for a lot of aggression around him.
Prithvi Shaw has given a befitting reply to everyone who has criticised him over his poor form with the bat in the first Test. Shaw had a forgettable outing in the recently-concluded first Test against Australia at the Adelaide Oval. There he had failed to trouble the scorers in the first innings and could only manage a run-a-ball four in the second.
He was dismissed in a similar fashion in both the innings by new-ball bowlers Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins respectively. However, Prithvi Shaw is India’s 2018 U-19 World Cup-winning skipper took to Instagram and posted a message. It reads ‘If sometimes people demotivate you for something you try to do, that means you can do that but they can’t’.
The visitors created an unwanted record after their humiliating batting performance against Australia in the second innings. Where neither of the batsmen managed to reach even double figures. The Men in Blue were eventually restricted to 36/9. India have now registered their lowest ever score in the game’s longest format. Their previous lowest score in Test cricket was against England. That was at the ‘Mecca of Cricket’ Lord’s back in June 1974.
Opener Mayank Agarwal was India’s top-scorer with 9 runs. The Virat Kohli-led side had no option but to declare their innings at 36/9. Because Mohammed Shami had to retire hurt after being struck on his wrists by a vicious delivery from Pat Cummins with India having an 89-run lead.
