Prithvi Shaw, who scored a century on debut against West Indies, will be hoping to emulate his form Down Under. The 19-year-old averages 118.5 after two Tests. Shaw has scored 1767 runs in 17 first-class matches at an average of 60.93. He has notched eight fifties and eight centuries. In his last first-class match against New Zealand A, he recorded scores of 62 and 50 in Mount Maunganui.

Earlier in the day, when the Indians couldn’t start their warm-up match against Cricket Australia XI in Sydney due to rain, Virat Kohli decided to hit the gym along with Ishant Sharma and Murali Vijay.

Taking to Instagram, Kohli posted a photo which read: “The rain doesn’t seem to be going away so we decided to make something of our day ✌️💪. Gotta love a good workout with the boys. #makeeverydaycount”

The first day of the warm-up match was washed out without a ball being bowled. The visitors would certainly like to begin their match practice on Thursday.

The first Test between India and Australia starts in Adelaide on 6 December.
