In the Ranji Trophy 2024 season, the match is being played between Chhattisgarh and Mumbai in Elite Group B. In this match, young opening batsman Prithvi Shaw, who returned fully fit after injury, saw an explosive century innings. Shaw completed his century in the very first session of the game. Prithvi returned to the pavilion after facing 185 balls in this innings after scoring 159 runs, in which 18 fours and three sixes were seen. Shaw faced only 102 balls to complete his century in this match. This is also his 13th century in first class cricket in his 80th innings.
Became the third player to do so in Ranji
Prithvi Shaw injured his knee ligament in a match during England’s domestic ODI tournament in the year 2023. After this, he could not play in many domestic tournaments continuously. Shaw returned to the field after a long time during Mumbai’s last Ranji match against Bengal, but he could not do anything special with the bat. Now, by scoring a century in an explosive manner in this match, he has also given a message to everyone about his comeback. Shaw has also become the third batsman in the history of Ranji Trophy to score a century in the first session of a match. Earlier, in the year 1950, JN Seth had achieved this feat in the match against Southern Punjab and in the year 1965, Bharat Awasthi had achieved this feat in the match against Jammu and Kashmir.
Prithvi Shaw has had such a first class career so far
If we look at Prithvi Shaw’s record in first-class cricket format, he made his debut in the semi-final match against Tamil Nadu in the year 2016-17 season. In this match, Shaw also won the title of Player of the Match by scoring 120 runs in the second innings of Mumbai.
