Many legends included Sunil Gavaskar and Allan Border had advised the Indian team management to eliminate Shaw from the team, but Virat Kohli decided to give Shaw a long rope. Shaw has faced a good deal of criticism from the greats for playing too many shots in Test cricket.

But Virat Kohli still decided to support him. The decision has already begun to prove costly for India.
On Wednesday, skipper Kohli spoke at a press conference where he talked about Prithvi Shaw and said: “Prithvi performed at the test level but would be playing in Australia for the first time. I think it’s very exciting to see his progress too ”.
