Prithvi Shaw slams record-breaking double hundred in 129 balls for Northamptonshire in England's One-Day Cup

Prithvi Shaw slams record-breaking double hundred in 129 balls for Northamptonshire in England's One-Day Cup

On Wednesday, India batter Prithvi Shaw smashed a double century for Northamptonshire against Somerset at the County Ground in Northampton.

Opening the batting in his third game for the Northants, Shaw hit his first century off 81 deliveries before switching gears to smash a spectacular double century.

Shaw hit his second century in record time, with 24 fours and eight sixes from 129 deliveries. The Mumbaikar's previous double century occurred in the 2020-21 Vijay Hazare Trophy, when he hit an unbroken 227 for Mumbai against Puducherry, the tournament's then-highest total.

Shaw improved on that knock, finally falling in the 50th over of Northants' innings after a furious 153-ball 244 with 28 fours and 11 sixes. Northants finished the One-Day Cup with the second-highest score, 415 for eight.

The 23-year-old set multiple List A records with his ninth century, his first in the format since a 165 for Mumbai in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in March 2021.

Shaw has scored over 2900 runs in 56 List A games, with 20 fifty-plus scores and a 50-plus average.

Shaw was removed hitwicket on 34 on his Northants debut against Gloucestershire last week.

Here is a look at the records broken by Shaw with his knock for Northants:

Prithvi Shaw surpassed Ollie Robinson’s 206 (for Kent in 2022) to record the highest individual score ever in the One-Day Cup.

Shaw recorded his highest List A score - 244.

Shaw recorded the third-best boundary haul by a batter in an innings in recorded men’s List A cricket - 39 (28 fours, 11 sixes).

Shaw’s 244 is the second-highest score in English List A cricket, behind Ali Brown’s 268 in the Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy in 2002.

Shaw is the first batter to smash List A double hundreds in two countries.
Shaw is also the first batter to record List A double hundred for two teams (Mumbai, Northamptonshire).

Shaw surpassed Saif Zaib’s 136 to record the highest score by a Northants batter in the One-Day Cup.

Shaw became just the second Indian after Rohit Sharma and fourth overall to record multiple List A double-hundreds. While Rohit has three such scores, Ali Brown and Travis Head have two apiece.

Shaw broke Cheteshwar Pujara’s record for the highest score by an Indian in the One-Day Cup.

Shaw became just the third batter to record a double hundred in the One-Day Cup.
Shaw surpassed Sourav Ganguly’s 183 for India (v Sri Lanka, 1999) for the highest List A score by an Indian in England.

Shaw’s current List A average (55.30) is the seventh-best overall and the fourth-best among Indians, only behind Ruturaj Gaikwad, Pujara and Virat Kohli.
