He supported opener Prithvi Shaw’s chance in the first Test, saying, ‘I wanted Sav to play in the first Test because if a player scored a century and four half-centuries in four Tests, you would like to start the series with him. . He had hit a half-century in difficult conditions in New Zealand. However, there is no doubt that he is not in rhythm. His confidence is also shaken. ‘
