Discarded Indian batter Prithvi Shaw scored his second double-hundred in LIST A cricket as he scored 244 off 153 balls for Northamptonshire in the Royal London One-Day Cup Against Somerset on Wednesday, August 9.

Northamptonshire piled up a mammoth 415/8 after Shaw’s fireworks opened the batting. The Indian batter struck 28 fours and 11 sixes during his knock. He scored his runs at a strike rate of almost 160. While the talented batter continues to remain out of the national team he is doing the most that he can playing any and every form of cricket.

Shaw broke a few records after his stellar knock for Northamptonshire. He became the first player to hit Liat A double tons for two different teams. He also became the first cricketer to score List A tons in two different countries.

The BCCI ignored Shaw from selection in the national team due to his off-field behavior and attributes. However, the youngster remained true to his game on the field. In domestic cricket in India, Shaw is a regular run-scoter for Mumbai.

He scores runs in any and every form of cricket be it the Duleep Trophy, Ranji Trophy, Vijay Hazare of Syed Mushtaq Ali. However, his numbers were never considered good enough to give him a longer rope in international cricket.

Shaw made his Test debut against West Indies in Rajkot in 2018 and scored a century on debut. Since then he has only played five Tests for India, six ODIs and just a solitary T20I. The Delhi Capitals batter had a disappointing IPL 2023 season adding more reasons to keep him out of the side. He scored 106 runs at a bleak average of 13.25
in 8 games.
