India youngster, Prithvi Shaw is likely expecting to replace KL Rahul for the final Test against England which is scheduled on September 7, 2018.
However, India has already lost the five-match Test series against England after they lost of the fourth Test match by 60 runs. Moreover, both the side will make some few significant changes. Ravichandran Ashwin is not likely to be fit and Prithvi Shaw might replace KL Rahul. However, Prithvi Shaw might get a chance to make his international debut.

Kl Rahul has scored 113 runs in the last eight innings at an average of just over 14. He couldn’t change much of his stats even after taking some fine catches in the slip region. However, Kl Rahul is also facing issue with the incoming balls as he is unable to pick it up gently.
Furthermore, Prithvi Shaw, who is playing for India A showed some terrific innings over the past matches. He scored 188 runs in his second innings against West Indies A, which is likely to be his highest score in recent times.

India played some good cricket in their third Test against England and they won the match by a massive 201 runs margin. However, the bowlers are doing extremely well with the new and old bowl. Especially the fast bowlers showed some good bowling attack throughout the series.
