Former Australian legend, Michael Bevan has reacted to India’s loss to Australia in the first Test. Michael Bevan has weighed in on the Prithvi Shaw-Shubman Gill debate and expressed as to what he feels needs to be done.
Prithvi Shaw has been the centre of attraction in the last couple of days as the action unfolded between India and Australia in the first Test match. Shaw, who was unexpectedly picked in the Playing XI ahead of Shubman Gill, had a miserable outing as he was dismissed in an almost identical manner in both the innings.
Michael Bevan Weighs In On The Prithvi Shaw-Shubman Gill Debate
Speaking exclusively to CricketAddictor.com, Michael Bevan said, “I really enjoy watching Shubman Gill bat. I think he’s a really good player. I think Shaw is there as well. He got out a couple of times playing away from his body pushing at the ball and that can be a bit of an issue on Australian wickets.”
“Having said that, players deserve a number of chances. It’s very hard to pick a player for one game and then drop him. I think when you pick a player, he deserves 2 or 3 matches. That’s what should happen. There are still three Tests to go and if he doesn’t score runs in the next game, then Shubman Gill can be tried,” Michael Bevan further said.
