With a 159-run knockout in the Ranji Trophy match against Chhattisgarh, Prithvi Shaw makes a significant statement

<p>At the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur on Friday, Prithvi Shaw produced a magnificent century in the Ranji Trophy match against Chhattisgarh. Due to a knee injury he sustained during his county career with Northamptonshire last year, Shaw has not played in any competitive cricket matches for the previous several months. The Mumbaikar had to have knee surgery, and then his recuperation period was really long.</p>

<p>In his first game upon his return, he had a poor performance against Bengal, scoring just 35 runs off 42 balls, although Mumbai won by a commanding innings and four runs.</p>
<p>Shaw returned from the Ranji Trophy match with a wonderful century, and he made a strong statement in his second innings.</p>
<p>18 fours and three sixes were included in the 24-year-old’s explosive 159 runs off 185 balls.alls, interspersed with three sixes and eighteen fours. Even though Vishvash Malik left in the midst, the Mumbai native had already done significant harm to Chhattisgarh.</p>
<p>Along with Bhupen Lalwani, he put Mumbai ahead of Chhattisgarh with a 244-run opening partnership.</p>
<p>The Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy are two white-ball domestic competitions that the 24-year-old has previously missed. He has had inconsistent performance with the bat before to his injury. In the previous Ranji Trophy season, he amassed 595 runs in 10 innings, including a record-breaking 379 runs off 383 balls against Assam. But his inconsistent behaviour worried him, and this finally showed in the IPL as well.</p>
<p>In English county, Shaw was playing at an elite level before to suffering an injury. In four innings, he amassed 429 runs, including a career-high 244 off only 153 balls against Somerset. He was forced to leave England early due to a knee injury he sustained while fielding in the match against Durham.</p>
<p>In the last game, Mumbai easily defeated Bengal by an innings and four runs with a bonus point here on Sunday because to Mohit Avasthi’s rampaging innings-long take of seven wickets for 52 runs.</p>
<p>After being asked to follow on, Bengal was bowled out for 209 in their second innings, and Avasthi concluded with a match-high 10 wickets, having taken 3/63 in the first innings.</p>
<p>Mumbai was able to dominate Bengal from the beginning of the game thanks to a solid first-inning batting performance that gave them a commanding 412.</p>
