“In both innings, the team got backfoot due to early dismissal of Prithvi Shaw. Looking at the first innings, I think the slow batting of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli was right for the team. But in the second innings, India failed to repeat the order of such batting. “
He further said that,
“In the first innings, it seemed that India was not looking for an opportunity to score. But Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara’s partnership gave the team’s innings the right direction. After this Ajinkya Rahane decided to bring the team to at least 244 runs. “
The reason for Prithvi Shaw’s dismissal
After this, Gilchrist spoke about Team India’s opener Prithvi Shaw, that,
“Prithvi Shaw Test proved to be a complete flop in both innings in the first Test match. However, he was a part of the Indian team last year too and many things remained about the young batsman here. It has become clear that his technique has been tested and a plan has been prepared that he has to bowl out between the bat and the pad. Which is a matter of concern for the young batsman. “
