India were dealt with a severe blow ahead of the first Test against Australia when in-form batsman Prithvi Shaw was ruled out of the match in Adelaide.
Shaw had suffered an ankle injury while fielding on the boundary in the tour match against Cricket Australia XI.
The player has resumed training, but is doubtful for the second Test to be held in Perth.
On Monday, the youngster was spotted jogging around the sidelines.
He was still wearing a protective brace though, which casts a doubt over his participation for the second Test starting on Friday.
The teenager is most likely to return in the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne.
The management will not be keen to take a risk with Shaw, even if he recovers before Friday.
Prithvi had to be carried off the field and taken to hospital for a scan. It was then confirmed that he suffered a lateral ligament injury. He was fielding at deep mid-wicket fence and was trying to take a catch, when he got injured.
In Shaw's absence, India turned up to Murali Vijay and KL Rahul to open the innings in the first Test.
Vijay managed 11 and 18 across two innings.
Rahul, who scored two in the first innings, got a positive looking 44 in the next, before throwing his wicket away.
India are likely to opt for the duo in Perth after winning the first Test.
Earlier, Shaw had struck the right cords in the tour match against Cricket Australia XI.
The youngster smashed a 69-ball 66 on day two of the warm-up match between the visitors and Cricket Australia XI.
His brisk knock was laced with 11 fours.
The dashing youngster came into the match after smashing two fifties against New Zealand A, recently, away from home.
Shaw has already built a reputation in a short span.
The teenager hit a century on debut and went on to smash 70 and 33* in the second Test versus West Indies.
Shaw has the potential to become a regular opener.
He is touted to be the next big thing.
India will hope that he recovers fully and gets back to action soon.
