Ranji Trophy: Prithvi Shaw best career undefeated 240 games, Mumbai 397/2 | Cricket News



GUWAHATI: Consistently ignored across formats over the past 18 months, Prithvi Shaw butcher an unhappy person Assam attacked to subdue with a spectacular undefeated score of 240 as Mumbai ended the opening day of Group B match Ranji with a comfortable 397 score over two Tuesdays.
Shaw added 200 runs for an uninterrupted third game against captain Ajinkya Rahane (73 not out) as Mumbai aimed for bonus points against Eastern State to offset the dent from their defeat to Saurashtra.
A freestyle hitter, Shaw hit 33 boundaries and six points on his shot and is strict with every pitcher at the picturesque Amingaon cricket ground.
The only six were hit over the long fence while he made shots around the racket frame.
There were shots behind the square but some shots that went through the screens, shots that deflected and sent the ball over the midfield and some pulls were part of his scoring run.
His scores against the Assam pitchers are evenly distributed.
In fact, Shaw failed to score 153 balls out of the 283 he faced for the day. His 240 shots actually produced 130 scoring shots.
Hridip Deka was hit 53 of the 56 balls he threw to Shaw.
Spinner Roshan Alam took the most damage with 76 goals scored on his 76 balls.
Shaw in his previous games hasn’t even accumulated 200 runs but for his talent it’s only been an inning and he hasn’t taken down Assam so badly in every corner of the ground. .
The Indian team currently has a lot of space in terms of formats but a player of the quality Shaw probably cannot stay for too long.
Hanuma Vihari cows in Kotla
In stark contrast to Shaw’s innings, Team India’s other return-hungry player Hanuma Vihari was unbeaten 76 out of 202 balls as Andhra scored 203 to 3 against an exhausted Delhi bowling attack. at Feroz Shah Kotla.
In fact, young opener CR Gnaneshwar (81 of 158 balls) looked more adept at beating cold Delhi as pitcher Hrithik Shokeen (1/49 in 13 rounds) looked Seems to be the best pitcher ever.
