“We shouldn’t compare him to anyone yet. We shouldn’t put him in a space where he feels pressure of any kind and he should be left in a space where he enjoys his cricket and slowly grows into a player we all believe in,” Virat Kohli said.
“I am sure our guys would have learnt quickly from what happened in the first Test and we will know some of the strengths of the young Shaw, who really took us apart early in the game. I am sure we will learn from our mistakes in the first game and move on smartly in the second game,” says Roston Chase.
After demolishing the Windies by an innings and 272-run win in the first Test, Virat Kohli, and co. look to wrap up the series in style against their opponents in the final Test at the Hyderabad which begins from Friday, October 12. However, with the return of Jason Holder and Kemar Roach, the West Indies will hope for a turnaround.
Right from the word go, the Indian batsmen led by Prithvi Shaw looked in supreme touch. While Shaw marked his Test debut with 134, his captain also continued his rich vein of form with an equally sizzling hundred in Rajkot. KL Rahul, after being picked ahead of Mayank Agarwal, will also have to make this opportunity count. KL Rahul was dismissed for a duck in the first Test. The bowling continues to look sharp and a three-pronged spin attack seems like the way forward.
Representatives of India’s teenage opener Prithvi Shaw have issued cease-and-desist orders and filed a lawsuit of Rs one crore against two brands and a hospital group for unlawfully using the batsman’s image and name to promote themselves.
Shaw became the youngest Indian to score a century on Test debut last week. Amid the celebratory messages, Freecharge and Swiggy put out his name along with their company logos. The e-commerce website posted an image with the batsman’s likeness and name along with the caption ‘Super charged Shaw’, while the food delivery platform congratulated the batsman with a message: ‘Firsts we will remember forever. First bite of Rasmalai. First Prithvi Shaw innings.’
FOR A 7-8 minute period on Thursday morning, Virat Kohli could hardly lay bat on ball. Though he did shoulder arms to a couple rather confidently, deliveries were repeatedly flying past his bat or rushing him into awkward positions. It was the kind of working over, you almost never see him have to endure in recent times. On one occasion, Mohammad Siraj got one to land on a length, straighten and lift off, squaring up his captain and beating his outside-edge. The delivery even earned the Hyderabad pacer a clap of appreciation from Kohli. The Indian captain was also late on a few from throw
THE WEST Indian team were left seething and disenchanted after they weren’t offered the necessary net bowlers in Hyderabad for their practice session on the eve of the Test. While the Indian team had the full assortment of net bowlers—around a dozen or so—the visitors had to make do with a single fast bowler, having to eventually get their security liaison manager to bowl spin at their lead batsmen.
“We don’t have to generally ask for net bowlers. It’s pretty much part of the MoU signed between the two boards before the series. But we got to the ground and found only one guy was around,” said a Cricket West Indies (CWI) team official.
SG, the official suppliers of Test balls in India, said on Thursday they are open to raise the seam of the cherry to placate Team India who have gone increasingly vocal in their criticism of its quality and feel. On the eve of the second Test against the West Indies, Virat Kohli tore into the SG red ball saying that it was inferior to the Dukes (used in England and the West Indies) and the Kookaburra Test ball. The India captain even went to the extent of recommending Dukes for Test cricket all over the world.
