Prithvi Shaw Scores A Record-Breaking Double-Century In English One-Day Cup 2023

Last Wednesday (9 August), during the Group B match of the English One-Day Cup 2023 between Northamptonshire and Somerset at Northampton, the 23-year-old Indian opener Prithvi Shaw scored a record-breaking double-century. With his 244 runs knock, the right-handed batter recorded the highest individual score in the English One-Day Cup history.

After Northamptonshire chose to bat first, opener Prithvi Shaw dominated with his aggressive batting performance. While Sam Whiteman scored the second-highest runs in that innings with 54 runs in 51 balls, Shaw scored 244 off just 153 balls with the help of 28 fours and 11 sixes.

While Shaw completed his century in the match in 81 balls, he completed 200 runs in 129 balls. It was Shaw’s second double-century in his List A career (227 not out for Mumbai vs Puducherry at Jaipur on 25 February 2021). His batting helped Northamptonshire to manage the seventh-highest total in the competition history, 415/8 in 50 overs.

Later, Somerset were all out for 328 runs in 45.1 overs as Northamptonshire won by 87 runs.

Here are some crucial stats of Prithvi Shaw’s incredible List A batting performance.
