Prithvi Shaw’s exit in the first test against Australia in Adelaide went from bad to worse when he dropped a hold from Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling alley of Australia’s # 3 Marnus Labuschagne. With India only managing 244 in the first inning, Labuschagne’s wicket was crucial for India, but Shaw, stationed on a short square leg, failed to catch the ball when Labuschagne netted it in the second. second day session.
