Young Indian batter Prithvi Shaw scored his maiden triple hundred in the 2022-23 Ranji Trophy Group B match against Assam at the Amingaon Cricket Ground in Guwahati. The Mumbai batter recorded the second highest score in the National Championship. Former Indian pacer Venkatesh Prasad termed Prithvi Shaw a “rare and special talent” and said that he should be in the team.

Prithvi Shaw broke Sanjay Manjrekar’s record (377) and became the highest individual scorer in a single Ranji Trophy innings for Mumbai. The right-handed batsman scored 379 runs off 383 balls with 49 fours and four sixes and was on the verge of 400 runs before being dismissed by Ryan Parag. Maharashtra’s Bhausaheb Nimbalkar still holds the highest score of 443 against Saurashtra in the 1948–49 season.

“A rare and special talent- Prithvi Shaw. Whatever may be the issues that are keeping him away from the team, it’s job of the management to give a chance and have an effective communication with him which helps both him and Team India,” Venkatesh Prasad tweeted.

The right-handed Mumbai batsman scored his maiden Test century on his debut for India against the West Indies in 2018. Since India were bowled out for 36 at the Adelaide Oval in 2020, Shaw has not played a single Test match. He hasn’t been considered for the national team for the past few years.

Sometimes, You Do Get Frustrated – Prithvi Shaw

The 23-year-old has been scoring runs consistently across formats in domestic cricket, but with stiff competition for the opening slot in the national team, he could not make it into the squad.

“Sometimes, you do get frustrated. You know you are doing your things right. You know you are doing your processes right, you are honest with your self, disciplined with your career on and off the field. But sometimes people do talk differently. People who don’t even know you judge you,” Prithvi Shaw said after the match.
