IND vs AUS: 3 Players Who Can Be Replaced By Prithvi Shaw In India’s Test Team. Prithvi Shaw has played only 5 Tests, 6 ODIs, and 1 T20I and has amassed 339 runs averaging 42.37 in Tests and 189 runs averaging 31.5 in ODIs.
Prithvi Shaw last played for the national team in July on Sri Lanka 2021 tour and was out for a first-ball duck on his T20I debut (the only T20I he played). He has played 6 ODIs, scoring 189 runs and 5 Tests with 339 runs with one century to his name.

Prithvi Shaw has played just a solitary T20I for India to date. He wasn’t even selected in the second-string squads that traveled to Ireland, West Indies, and Zimbabwe. With opening being a serious issue in T20Is after the T20 World Cup 2022 debacle, it was baffling that Prithvi Shaw didn’t get a call-up for the New Zealand tour.
Prithvi Shaw though remains in contention for a spot in the 2023 ODI World Cup slated in October-November, as regular openers Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, and Rohit Sharma have been inconsistent, to say the least.
Not much experienced Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan have been prolific as of late, but the question remains whether they would carry that form in the 2023 ODI World Cup. Prithvi Shaw can also be brought back into the Test fold, especially during IND vs AUS Test series.

KL Rahul, the Indian opener, is the frontrunner to be replaced by Prithvi Shaw if he returns to the Test arena. KL Rahul can afford to take a break or bat in the middle order if Prithvi Shaw makes a comeback in IND vs AUS Tests.
Senior Indian batter, KL Rahul made his Test debut for India in the Boxing-day Test match in Melbourne against Australia in 2014. Since then, he has delivered some excellent knocks with the bat for India in the longest format of the game. He averages 34.26 in 45 Tests where he managed 2604 runs. He could score only 57 runs in 4 innings in the recent Bangladesh tour averaging only 14.25 but had won both Tests as a stand-in skipper.
