#1 Prithvi Shaw hobbles out of Adelaide Test
India's hopes of winning a Test series in Australia encountered a roadblock when Prithvi Shaw, on his second tour abroad with the Indian team, had to be helped off the field during his side's four day game against Cricket Australia XI.
Fielding in the deep, Shaw attempted to catch a skier but ended up twisting his ankle even as he tipped past the ropes. He fell on the other side of the boundary and was seen grimacing in pain. Soon, physio Patrick Farhat came to his assistance and helped him get off the field, Shaw looking in extreme discomfort all the while.
Later, it was announced that the injury had forced him out of the first Test at Adelaide, set to begin on December 6.
