Young <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/india/">Indian</a> batting phenomenon <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/prithvi-shaw">Prithvi Shaw</a> resumed running Monday in his battle to be fit for the second Test against Australia after a <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-ca-xi-freak-ankle-injury-rules-prithvi-shaw-out-of-adelaide-test-771787">nasty ligament injury</a> sidelined him late last month. <p></p> <p></p>The 19-year-old, who scored a sparkling debut century against the West Indies in October and has been compared to Sachin Tendulkar, landed awkwardly attempting a catch in a Sydney warm-up match, ruling him out of the opening Test. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ:</strong> <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-australia-2018-minus-crutches-prithvi-shaw-watches-from-adelaide-oval-sidelines-774731">Minus crutches, Prithvi Shaw watches from Adelaide Oval sidelines</a> <p></p> <p></p>His left ankle was heavily strapped as he limped around the Adelaide Oval late last week. But on Monday he was spotted jogging around the sidelines, although still wearing a protective brace. <p></p> <p></p>The Indian camp still rate him an unlikely starter for the second Test in Perth starting on Friday, with a return in the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne more likely. <p></p> <p></p>"With youth on his side there might just be a case where he might recover quicker," Indian coach Ravi Shastri said last week. "We'll make a call as and when we get closer to Perth." <p></p> <p></p>Shaw was set to open the batting alongside either KL Rahul or Murali Vijay in Adelaide. In his absence, those two were paired together. Rahul made 2 and 44 while Vijay could only manage 11 and 18.
