Prithvi Shaw on Thursday slams an unbeatable score of 227* off 152 balls in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, held at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. The Indian cricket opener batsmen broke the earlier record named to Sanju Samson (212* not out) in the year 2019 in a match against Goa.
In the absence of Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw was leading the Mumbai side and hit 31 fours and 5 sixes in his outstanding innings. Shaw’s 227* is currently the best individual score within the tournament’s history whereas Mumbai’s 457/4 in fifty overs may be a new record for the best team total ever during a List-A (50-over format) match in India.
This was the fourth time double century made in the history of Vijay Hazare Trophy
Puducherry vs Mumbai, Round 3, Elite Group D: Prithvi Shaw dominates
After winning the toss, Puducherry decided to bowl first, but the decision to put Mumbai in to bat first backfired badly. Shaw snarred Puducherry’s bowling attack, comprising 36-year-old former India player Pankaj Singh (2/79)
Shaw and Yashasvi Jaiswal (10) added 58 runs before the first wicket would lay down. After Jaiswal was dismissed, Shaw found a partner with Aditya Tare (56, 7×4) and the duo seamed a 153-run stand for the second wicket.
Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav shared a 201-run partnership for Mumbai in their Elite Group D game. Suryakumar Yadav scored a sensational quickfire century(133 runs off 58 balls) which helped Mumbai go past the 400-run mark.
Puducherry captain Damodaren Rohit scored 63 runs in return but the other batting line-up collapsed to a total of 224/10(38.1 overs). Debutant leg spinner Prashant Solanki grabbed 5 wickets, but senior bowlers Shardul Thakur and Tushar Deshpande failed to impress with the economy ratings over 7.
