Injured Shaw resumes running, could return for Boxing Day Test

Young Indian batting phenomenon Prithvi Shaw resumed running on Monday in his battle to be fit for the second Test against Australia after a nasty ligament injury sidelined him late last month.

The 19-year-old, who scored a century on debut against the West Indies in October, landed awkwardly attempting a catch in a Sydney warm-up match, ruling him out of the opening Test at Adelaide.

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.

The Indian camp still see him as an unlikely starter for the second Test in Perth starting on Friday, with a return in the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne more likely.

"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."
