Prithvi Shaw continued his resurgence on the domestic circuit as he was at his brilliant best during the fifth-round match against Assam and finally ended his lean patch in the tournament on Tuesday as he was unbeaten on 240 runs at stumps. The 23-year-old continued from where he left off on Day 1 of the game and brought up his maiden triple ton in first class after switching gears once the play restarted.

Shaw would break several records along the way and surpass the highest scores achieved by Sunil Gavaskar, Cheteshwar Pujara, and VVS Laxman in the Ranji Trophy. The flamboyant opener then went on to break Sanjay Manjrekar’s 32-year-old record for the highest individual score which was 377.

Prithvi Shaw was finally dismissed by Riyan Parag before he scored 49 fours and four sixes in his innings that lasted 383 deliveries. Shaw has been getting a lot of praise from fans and the members of the cricket fraternity with Mumbai teammates Yadav and Iyer leading the way. The 32-year-old hailed his teammate’s innings as madness while Iyer called Shaw a champion player.

Shaw, who jumped to the second in both lists on Wednesday, became the ninth batter to go surpass the tally of 350 in Ranji innings, surpassing Swapnil Gugale (351*), Cheteshwar Pujara (352), VVS Laxman (353), Samit Gohel (359*), Vijay Merchant (359*), MV Sridhar (366) and Sanjay Manjrekar (377). Manjrekar’s 377 was the highest score by a Mumbai batter in First-Class cricket before Shaw’s carnage.

Notably, Pruthvi Shaw became the first player to notch a triple hundred in Ranji Trophy, a double hundred in Vijay Hazare Trophy, and a hundred in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
