New Delhi: The 5-Test series between India and England (IND vs ENG Test Series) is going to start from August 4 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. Virat Kohli can bet on many young players in this series.

Prithvi Shaw arrives in England

India’s young batsman Prithvi Shaw has reached England on Tuesday after returning from the Sri Lanka tour, Suryakumar Yadav was also present with him. Both have been called as replacements for the injured Test players of Team India, although they will not get a chance in the first Test under strict quarantine rules.

Prithvi can replace these 3 players

1- Mayank Agarwal

Just 2 days before the start of the India and England Test Series, opener Mayank Agarwal was injured and ruled out of the Nottingham Test. Mayank expected him to play well in the first Test. Now with Prithvi Shaw coming to England, Mayank’s tension is bound to increase, because Prithvi can also open like Mayank and can also clear his card from the Test team.

2 Cheteshwar Pujara

Legends like Brad Hogg also believe that Prithvi Shaw will prove to be the best replacement for Cheteshwar Pujara in Team India. Significantly, Pujara has not scored a single century for the last two years. Pujara scored his last Test century in January 2019 against Australia. In such a situation, the demand for new faces for number-3 is continuously increasing.

3 Ajinkya Rahane

Ajinkya Rahane may be the vice-captain of the Indian Test team, but his place can also be threatened by Prithvi Shaw. In the ICC World Test Championship Final (ICC WTC Final), there were a lot of expectations from Ajinkya Rahane which were shattered. Rahane last scored a century in the Melbourne Test. In such a situation, excessive dependency on senior players can harm Team India, then the role of youth like Prithvi will become important.

When did Prithvi play the last test?

Prithvi Shaw played the last Test in Adelaide in December 2020. In which Virat Kohli’s team was all out for 36 runs in the second innings against hosts Australia. Since then, Prithvi has not been able to return to Test cricket, but after his impressive performance in domestic cricket, he has once again been given a place in the Indian Test team.
