England’s Prithvi Shaw defeats India in a dramatic manner, with the Indian player winning 100 off 81 balls and scoring 200 runs.

Despite being seen as the next big thing, Prithvi Shaw arrived at England for the One-day Cup with a clear objective. However, his career has taken an unexpected turn down the last few months due to injuries and controversy on the sidelines. Nevertheless, this was not enough to convince him that he is still capable of leading any international team to victory in 2018, as evidenced by his recent display against West Indies.

In the One-Day Cup competition for Indians, Shaw made history by scoring a double ton in Northamptonshire’s 153-ball 244 against Somerset on Wednesday. He is now only the second Indian to have reached the 100-run mark in 81 balls and reach the 200- run mark with 129 balls. Cheteshwar Pujara was the first to do so at the age of 23 years old.

The 23-year-old, who is currently in his first county season, hit 28 fours and 11 sixes to secure his second List A double century. This was his ninth ListA century, and his most recent since the Vijay Hazare Trophy semifinal against Karnataka where he led Mumbai to win the title in 2020-21.

In his third game for the Northamptonshire team, Shaw scored his maiden hundred off 81 balls. He then achieved the 200-run milestone with 24 fours and eight sixes, propelling them to 415/8 after choosing to bat.

The Metro Bank’s One Day Cup, which is on August 9, 2023, has already scored 200 points.


The Mumbai-born athlete’s first List A double hundred in the Vijay Hazare Trophy against Puducherry in February 2021 marked his maiden unbeaten score of 227.

Despite starting his career with great success, Shaw has now fallen further down India’s ladder.

Despite scoring an impressive 379 in a Ranji Trophy match against Assam, Shaw didn’t have luster in the Indian Premier League.

His performance was so subpar that he was eliminated during the first round.


He was last seen on the India tour of Sri Lanka in July 2021, and he was part of the squad for the T20Is against New Zealand earlier this year, but rescheduled for that series against West Indies.

The talented opener has faced issues off the field in recent times.

With a rating of 51.67, Shaw has scored 2687 runs in 56 List A games.

Shaw’s first two games for Northamptonshire saw him score 26 and finish 34.
