Prudvi Shawa's dramatic injury caused a shake-up for India in the first Australian Domestic Test next Thursday.
The Cricket Control Board in India has confirmed that Shaw will miss the Test in Adelaide after having hit the left ankle injury he tried to catch in the outbreak on the day of the third Indian tour of Cricket Australia XI at SCG.
The 19-year-old was locked for the first test, but his top partner was not put in a stone after Indian coach Sanjay Bangar discovered yesterday that one of the opening positions and No.6 position was still overwhelmed.
KL Rahul is the current opener, but is pressurized on average by 24.70 in 2018, with only two results over 50 in 18 test changes.
The competition for Rahul's place is veteran Murali Vijay, who played test cricket against England in Lorra in August, where he shot par-out in both cases to win James Anderson's sports race.
Rahul was inclined to keep his spot for the first test, and Shaw turned it off, probably that would come, and Vijay is expected to return to XI.
And Rahul and Vijay have published the Test of the Century in Australia, and the tallest bat has an average of 60 on these shores with the best of 144 as well as four half a century on an appropriate tour four years ago.
Another possibility that India can think well is to promote the regular limitation of Rohit Sharma to the top of the line.
There are a few more destructive bats against a white ball from Rohit, but 31-year-old has never opened test cricket in its 25 games to date.
While on average 58.18 hitting No.6, Rohit seems to be battling allrounder Hanuma Vihara to score fourth.
Vihari ordered 53 hits on Thursday and won 53 against CA XI, along with making half a century and taking three wickets in his test debut against England in Oval.
The 25-year-old player gives captain of India Virat Kohl's fifth bowling, which could be enough to give him an edge ahead of Rohit.
However, if India increases and encourages Rohit to open, he and Vihari can be found in the same XI.
Bangar confirmed that India would agree with their strike order elsewhere in Sydney, and the revised list could provide insight into how tourists would go for the first test in six days.
