Prithvi Shaw has gained his chances of an India comeback in the forthcoming New Zealand and Australia series after smashing a demoiselle triadic century in the domestic Ranji Trophy event.
Prithvi Shaw scored 379 off 382 balls– the 2nd- highest individual score in the domestic circuit– on day two of the four- day group match against Assam on Wednesday.
He hit 49 fours and four sixes but slipped to reaching 400 after being trapped leg- ahead, ending a 401- run third- wicket cooperation with Mumbai commander Ajinkya Rahane.
“Sometimes you prepare hard but still don’t score runs. Today was my day,” Shaw told local media, ruing that the video of his dismissal showed he was not out.
“(The) ball was missing the stumps. You can’t blame the umpires though. There was no DRS,” he said, referring to cricket’s Decision Review System.
Jay Shah, secretary of the Indian cricket board, congratulated Shaw on Twitter for his “extraordinary” innings, hailing a “talent with immense potential”.
The Under- 19 World Cup- winning India captain made his Test debut against the West Indies in 2018 and scored a century, making him the youthful Indian Test centurion.
