Prithvi Shaw Created A Unique Record After 123 Years

Prithvi Shaw: Mumbai’s opening batsman Prithvi Shaw (Prithvi Shaw Tripal Century) created history by scoring a stormy triple century on Wednesday (January 11) in the Ranji Trophy 2022-23 match being played against Assam. Shaw scored 379 runs in 383 balls, in which he hit 49 fours and 4 sixes. Along with this historic innings, he made many records in his name.

Biggest innings as an opener:

This is the biggest score as an opener in Ranji Trophy. Earlier this record was in the name of Gujarat’s Samit Gohel, who scored an unbeaten 359 against Orissa in 2016.

Ranji’s second biggest innings:

Prithvi holds the record for the second-highest individual innings in Ranji Trophy history. In this case, he broke the record of Sanjay Manjrekar, who scored 377 against Hyderabad in 1991 while playing for Mumbai. Number one on this list is Bibi Nimbalkar, who scored an unbeaten 443 against Kathiawar in 1948 while playing for Maharashtra.

This happened after 123 years:

Prithvi has become the second player in the world to score 100 or more runs twice before lunch in a first-class match. Earlier this feat was done 123 years ago (in 1900) by Gilbert Jessup playing for Gloucestershire in a first-class match against Yorker. Prithvi has done this twice in a single inning while Jessup did it in different innings.
