Prithvi Shaw‘s 379 versus Assam in the Ranji Trophy match on Wednesday was more than simply a domestic batting record. It was also the strongest knock on the selector’s door after being ignored for almost a year.
The Mumbai batsman has been scoring well in recent domestic seasons but has failed to find the secret to his comeback to the Indian team. However, the teenager seems unconcerned with the call-up, preferring to concentrate on restoring the Ranji Trophy to Mumbai’s collection.

Shaw’s exhilarating performance comes only a few weeks before the crucial Border-Gavaskar Trophy at home, which will determine whether India advances to the World Test Championship finale or not. But, with the likes of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shubman Gill, and Abhimanyu Easwaran in front of him within the Test pecking order, the teenager may struggle to make the list.
Not Thinking If Someone Is Going To Call Me To The Indian Team: Prithvi Shaw
Prithvi Shaw told the news agency PTI that he prefers to stay in the moment and accomplish what he can control.
“I am not even thinking if someone is going to call me to the Indian team. I am just trying to do my things right which I can and not to think too far ahead. I am a person who loves to live one day at a time. I have to make my today right. I am playing for Mumbai and the goal is to win Ranji Trophy,” Prithvi was quoted as saying.
On all of his accounts, including some personal ones, he has received hundreds of congratulations.“Lot of people have praised and expectations are high. I hope I have made them happy,” Shaw said.
Prior to being caught in front by all-rounder Riyan Parag, Prithvi amassed 379 runs off only 383 deliveries with the aid of four sixes and 49 fours.
He is now just behind the illustrious B.B.Nimbalkar and achieved the second-highest individual score in Indian First-Class Cricket history with this accomplishment. Sanjay Manjrekar’s mark for Mumbai’s highest individual Ranji Trophy score has also been broken by him.
