Prithvi Shaw slams 5th first-class hundred in 7th match

Prithvi Shaw, who turned 18 just a couple days ago, continues to sparkle. In the on-going Ranji Trophy 2017, he slammed his 5th first-class hundred against Andhra Pradesh on Friday.

The 18-year old, made a fantastic start to his first-class career, as he has 5 FC tons in just 7 first-class matches. In his sparkling innings of 114 which came off 173 deliveries at a strike rate of 65.90, Shaw stroked 14 boundaries and one six.

Prithvi Shaw’s first glimpse of brilliance was when he a hit a hundred in the Ranji Trophy final and later went on to hit a century in the Duleep Trophy final.

Prior to the Ranji Trophy, the BCCI’s junior selection committee had excluded the 17-year-old from the U-19 Asia Cup squad and instead asked him to represent Mumbai. Until now, this decision is proving to be a great one. Recently Shaw also played for Board President’s XI against New Zealand where he scored 66 and earned praise from the likes of Tim Southee and Trent Boult.
