Mumbai skipper Prithvi Shaw scored a mammoth 227-run knock off just 157 balls in the ongoing match between Mumbai and Pudducherry of the Vijay Hazare Trophy on Thursday. With that, he now has the highest individual score in the history of the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Earlier, Sanju Samson held the record, having scored 212 runs against Goa in the 2019-20 season.
Prithvi Shaw wasn’t in the best of form before the knock. He was enduring a tough period. The innings would have given him a lot of confidence. His knock helped Mumbai reach a mammoth 457 runs in 50 overs. He stitched a 58-run opening partnership with Jaiswal before the latter got out after making 10 off 16 balls.
Tare then joined him and put on a huge partnership for the second wicket. The partnership set the tone for a mammoth total for Mumbai. Tare scored 56 runs off 64 balls before SS Kumar bowled him in the 30th over.
Suryakumar Yadav came out to bat at number four for the Mumbai cricket team. Continuing his fine form in white-ball cricket, Yadav smacked a 50-ball ton, laced with 22 fours and four maximums. Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav added 201 runs for the fourth wicket. The latter played the aggressor’s role, while Shaw kept the scoreboard ticking from the other end and completed his first-ever double ton across formats.
Suryakmar too notched a century, scoring 133 runs off 58 balls. Puducherry, in reply, has scored 219 runs in 37 overs. They need 239 runs in 78 balls to win the game.
