This was Shaw’s first century in this season of Ranji Trophy. He scored only 160 runs in his last seven innings at an average of 22.85 and a high score of 68.

Shaw has been dropped from various Indian teams in recent months. The 23-year-old last played for India in a T20I in July 2021, and was not picked despite consistent scores in the domestic circuit. He was the second highest run-scorer in this season’s Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy with 332 runs at a strike rate of 181.42 and a highest score of 134 against Assam. He had a decent Vijay Hazare Trophy average, scoring 217 runs in seven innings, but in List A cricket he averaged over 50.
Shaw recently found support from former India batsman Gautam Gambhir, who put pressure on the coaches and selectors to guide him and keep him in their plans.

“A guy like Prithvi Shaw, the kind of start he has had to his international career and the kind of talent he has, you back a player with talent,” Gambhir said. “Yes, you also have to look at the upbringing – where does he come from and the challenges he faces. It makes even more sense for the management and the selectors to keep him around in the mix, and help get him in the right place.” Be helped. Way.

“If he’s willing to work hard – and I know how destructive he can be; if he can go on to win games for you, whether he’s coach, management, head coach or chairman of selectors, All these people should pay attention. These young boys have a responsibility to try to follow the right path.”
