Prithvi Shaw Injured During the Tour Test (Video)
Team India’s teenage prodigy, Prithvi Shaw injured during the day 3 of India’s tour test against CXI. He might have a fracture in his ankle, as it was twisted during the incident.
Shaw was trying for the catch on boundary rope. He took a jump to cover the catch but landed badly on the ground. You can see in the picture below. He was seen in pain & carried out off the field by the physio as he wouldn’t manage to walk.
Oh, man. This is Prithvi Shaw’s ankle today. Injuries are the worst thing about sport. I’ve done both ankles at basketball. It’s agony and they still give me trouble. Hope the kid can get back to full health. pic.twitter.com/W6s73NUWFa

Prithvi Shaw has taken the news that he will miss India’s first Test against Australia “pretty hard”, according to team-mate Ravichandran Ashwin.
“[It’s] sad that it happened the first time he came out on the field,” Ashwin said.
“He has not spoken much. He’s a young boy who has come to play in Australia for the first time, had a dream start to his Test career, so it’s hit him pretty hard.
“It’s unfortunate what’s happened, but these things happen. It’s an opportunity for someone else.”
