Prithvi Shaw Clears Fitness Test, Set to Join India A Squad in New Zealand: Report

Opener Prithvi Shaw has passed his fitness test and would be joining India A squad in New Zealand soon. The youngster had suffered a shoulder injury while fielding, during Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy clash against Karnataka.

"He cleared the mandatory yo-yo test at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) on Tuesday morning. He should be flying on the 16th or 17th of January to join the India A side in New Zealand," a source told TOI.

After missing the two warm-up matches, Shaw will play in first unofficial ODI against New Zealand on January 22. Shaw is also likely to make it to the Test team as the reserve opener after Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma.

Also the reason why he was not picked in the ODI squad was – lack of clarity over all-rounder Hardik Pandya’s fitness, who is recovering from a lower back injury.

"We have a few issues to sort out. The teams for the ODIs and Tests in New Zealand will be picked after the ODI series in India," a source said.
