Ranji Trophy 2023: Prithvi Shaw Sets Second-Highest Individual Score In Ranji Trophy History With A 379-Run Innings For Mumbai Against Assam

The famous Indian opening batsman, Prithvi Shaw, is tearing it up for his state side, Mumbai, in their Ranji Trophy game against Assam on Wednesday (January 11).

The right-handed batter broke multiple additional batting records after scoring his first triple-century in domestic cricket from just 326 balls. From that point on, the batter changed his approach and began to score runs at a strike rate of around 100.

Not only did Prithvi Shaw surpass Sunil Gavaskar’s Ranji Trophy record of 340 runs for Mumbai, but also that of VVS Laxman and Cheteshwar Pujara, two of India’s top Test players. In the 2012–13 Ranji Trophy season, Pujara hit 352 runs for Saurashtra against Karnataka, whereas Laxman made 353 runs for Hyderabad against Karnataka in the 1999–2000 campaign.

With his record-breaking inning, Shaw has now made a statement following scores of 13, 6, 19, 4, 68, 35, and 15.

The Indian team for the next white-ball series against New Zealand and Test series against Australia has not yet been announced by the BCCI selection committee, but Shaw’s thunderous triple hundred has done more than enough to grab selectors’ attention.

The second-highest individual score in Ranji Trophy history belongs to Shaw. His record for the greatest individual score by a batter in Ranji matches is presently only one behind BB Nimbalkar’s. In the 1948–1949 season, Nimbalkar scored 443 runs against Saurashtra for Maharashtra.
