The young sensation, Prithvi Shaw has continued his remarkable form with another brilliant hundred against Railways in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018.

Meanwhile, Shaw started his campaign with a brilliant 98-run knock against Baroda to see his team through. Now, he has backed his first match score with an outstanding 129 at Bengaluru.

Mumbai skipper Ajinkya Rahane opted to bat first, and Prithvi Shaw didn’t let his decision go down. Although he lost Rahane early on, but Shaw ensured that the runs come by. Anureet Singh drew the first blood for Railways at the score of 27.

Shreyas Iyer then joined Shaw as the duo looked invincible against the Railways bowling unit. The duo outplayed them scoring runs all over the park. Prithvi Shaw was the aggressor of the two reaching his half-century in style.

Iyer and Shaw made things look simple scoring runs at a good pace. Mumbai reached their 100 runs in the 16th over, thus setting a platform for a huge total. The young Mumbai batsman, who recently earned a call in India Test side against England, showed why he is so highly rated. He reached his hundred off just 61 balls while Iyer didn’t lag too. Iyer, who has already made his India debut, played some classical looking shots to reach his fifty in the meantime.

Prithvi Shaw eventually got out at the score of 129 runs off just 81 balls including six massive sixes and 14 boundaries.

Shaw, once again with his classical batting and consistency has made a bold statement in front of the national selectors as one of the possible contenders for an India spot.
