Watch! Prithvi Shaw score a century for Mumbai as fans go crazy on Twitter


Syed Mushtaq Ali 2022 has already seen some amazing batting. India players like Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad  and Nitish Rana have already smacked a century during the first two rounds. On Friday, out of favor India opener Prithvi Shaw joined the century scoring fest with a ton against Assam during the 3rd round of games.

The story as it happened โ€“

Prithvi Shaw has been out of favor with the Indian selectors for over a year now. Shaw, last played for India in July 2021. The 22 year old recently posted a heartbreaking story on Instagram when he wasnโ€™t picked for the home series against South Africa. Captaining the side after injury to Rahane, the right hander tore into the Assam attack.

Chanceless ton by Shaw โ€“

Assam won the toss and put Mumbai into bat first. Shaw opened the batting with Aman Hakim Khan. The Mumbai skipper scored 134 runs off 61 balls with 13 fours and 9 sixes. Jaiswal scored 42 off 30 balls with 5 fours and a six as Mumbai scored a massive 230 on the board.

Shaw plays a hilarious shot that leaves all laughing โ€“

The funniest moment of the day happened when Shaw was batting on 111 and was facing off against Roshan Alam. The left arm spinner bowled outside off stump when he saw Shaw step out. The batter knew that he had missed the line of the ball and played it hilariously and in a funny manner to prevent getting himself stumped out.

Shaw looking to make a comeback to the Indian side โ€“

Former India under-19 skipper made an amazing debut for India with a test match century against West Indies in 2018. Shaw last played the Pink ball test at Adelaide in 2020 and hasnโ€™t been able to make a comeback to the side. Shaw was part of the ODI and T20 side which played the short series in Sri Lanka in July last year.
