Prithvi Shaw’s Sensational 244 inning is the A Record-Breaking Masterclass Against Somerset on One-Day Cup
Prithvi Shaw’s remarkable batting performance has left a lasting impact on List-A cricket records during his knock of 244 runs for Northamptonshire in England’s One-Day Cup. In an extraordinary display of his batting, the opener crafted his inning from a mere 153 deliveries, comprising an impressive tally of 28 fours and an astounding 11 sixes.
His contribution played a pivotal role in propelling Northamptonshire to a colossal total of 415-8, ultimately leading them to a resounding 87-run triumph over Somerset in the Metro Bank One-Day Cup. Prithvi Shaw’s exceptional innings of 244 runs for Northamptonshire not only secured a resounding victory but also etched several remarkable records in the history of List-A cricket.
His monumental performance propelled Northamptonshire to their highest-ever score in List A cricket, a staggering 415-8. This feat also elevated Shaw’s knock to the sixth-highest individual score globally in List A history, underscoring its significance on the international stage.
In the course of this innings, Shaw not only outperformed his own previous best of 227 runs, achieved while representing Mumbai against Puducherry in 2021, but also eclipsed Ben Duckett’s unbeaten 220 for England Lions against Sri Lanka A in 2016. It’s worth noting that the only superior effort in England’s List A cricket is Alistair Brown’s extraordinary 268 for Surrey against Glamorgan at the Oval in 2002.
Shaw’s extraordinary achievement underlines his ability to rewrite records and stand among the giants of List A cricket.
