Mumbai teenager Prithvi Shaw created a new national record today, hitting an astonishing 546 playing for Rizvi Springfield against St Francis D’Assisi Borivali in an inter-school match for the prestigious Harris Shield on Wednesday. Prithvi Shaw is already well-known in cricketing circles in Mumbai, but his knock of 546 has now made headlines nationally. It is now the highest score by a batsman in the tournament. The previous record was held by Armaan Jaffer, son of former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer, who socred 473 runs. Playing in the Harris Shield in Mumbai, Shaw crashed a quintuple century today. He was not out on 257 at stumps on Tuesday. Shaw’s abundant talent was on display as he cracked 44 boundaries yesterday — reaching 257 in just 166 balls. However, he decided to up the ante, scoring another 289 runs today. In total, his innings of 546 came in 330 balls with 85 fours and five sixes before being dismissed. The opposition St Francis D’Assisi managed just 92 in their first innings. Rizvi’s innings finished with 991 runs on the board. According to Times of India report, Shaw has already played abroad in England for the Gloucestershire second team. Shaw has also been named skipper of the Mumbai U-16 side.
