Australia vs India: No Advice For Prithvi Shaw As I am Playing Against Him, Says Joe Burns

516

ISLAMABAD, December 21 (online): Australian opener Joe Burns, who played a career-saving knock in the second innings of the day-night Test, has no advice for Indian batsman Prithvi Shaw on how to get back in-form. Shaw once again failed after getting dismissed in a similar fashion by Pat Cummins in the second innings of the opening Test. The right-handed batsman was backed by the selectors for the first Test but he managed only a duck and four in the two innings of the day-night Test.
Burns, who himself was out of form before he smashed an unbeaten fifty, said he is hoping the opponent batsman Shaw doesn’t score runs at all in the Border-Gavaskar trophy. The 31-year-old cricketer said he would offer some tips to the Indian batsman but after the conclusion of the Test series.
“I wouldn’t give him any advice as I am playing against him. I’m hoping that he makes no runs at all. I actually don’t know what form he is been in. I haven’t been following him,” Burns said while replying to a query from ANI.
“He is obviously a quality player if he is playing for India. I might give advice at the end of the series, but not after the first game,” he added.
