Prithvi Shaw recorded the second-highest individual score in Ranji Trophy on Wednesday when he made 379 for Mumbai against Assam.
Shaw was nearing 400 when he was trapped leg before by Riyan Parag.
B.B. Nimbalkar holds the record for the highest score in India’s First-Class competition. He was the first to make 400 in an innings, during the 1948-49 season, for Maharashtra against Kathiawar.
Shaw gathered 49 fours and four sixes during his 383-ball stay at the crease. He also had a 401-run partnership with captain Ajinkya Rahane for the third wicket.
Earlier in the innings, Shaw became only the eighth Mumbai batter to score a triple hundred. He beat the previous best by a Mumbai batter – 377 by Sanjay Manjrekar in the 1990-91 season.
Shaw also became the first player to score a triple hundred in Ranji Trophy, a double hundred in Vijay Hazare Trophy and a hundred in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
