Ranji Trophy 2019/20: Prithvi Shaw Hits His Maiden First-Class Double-Century
Prithvi Shaw has started his new Ranji Trophy season in a great way as he smashed his maiden first-class double-century.
Since his return to the cricket after completing the back-dated eight months suspension for a doping violation, Prithvi Shaw has shown remarkable consistency with the bat in domestic cricket.
Ranji Trophy 2019/20 has just begun on last Monday (9th December) where Prithvi Shaw’s Mumbai is playing against Baroda at Vadodara. In the first innings of the match, Shaw scored 66 runs off 62 balls (11 fours and only six). But his second innings batting was more incredible.
While Mumbai scored 431 runs in the first innings, Baroda were bowled out on 307 runs, and Suryakumar Yadav-led Mumbai achieved the 124 runs lead.
Prithvi Shaw scored 202 runs off 179 balls
Prithvi Shaw started the second innings powerfully and maintained it for the longer period. The 20-year-old right-handed batsman first completed his half-century in just 36 balls and reached the three-figure mark in 84 balls.
Shaw stretched his innings to 150 runs in 146 balls, and soon he surpassed his previous best first-class knock which was 188 runs. Finally, the youngster completed his maiden first-class double-century in just 174 balls. After scoring 202 runs off 179 balls, Prithvi Shaw lost his wicket. Before his dismissal, Shaw hit 19 fours and 7 sixes.
During that batting, he also had the 190 runs opening partnership with his opening partner Jay Bista (68 runs). When Shaw was dismissed, Mumbai already scored 313/4 in their second innings, and they got the lead of 437 runs.
After completing his ban, Prithvi Shaw played five matches in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2019/20 before the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2019/20 opening game. In the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2019/20, Shaw scored 240 runs with an average of 48.00. He scored 63, 30, 64, 30 and 53 runs respectively in that tournament. He has continued this form in the Ranji Trophy but in a more dangerous way.
Prithvi Shaw made his international cricket debut in October 2018, during the Rajkot Test against Windies. He scored a century in his debutant Test match. He has played two Tests and has scored 237 runs with an average of 118.50, including one century and one half-century.
