NEW DELHI: Mumbai skipper and opening batsman Prithvi Shaw on Sunday became the first player to register more than 800 runs in a single edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
Shaw achieved the feat in the final between Mumbai and Uttar Pradesh here at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, scoring 73 as Mumbai chased a mammoth 313-run target go win their fourth title.
Earlier, Madhav Kaushik and Akshdeep Nath played knocks of 158 and 55 respectively as Uttar Pradesh registered 312/4 in the allotted fifty overs.
Kaushik’s unbeaten knock is the most number of runs scored by a batsman in the finals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
The 21-year-old Shaw on Thursday broke Mayank Agarwal‘s record of scoring most runs in a single edition of the tournament. Agarwal had scored 723 runs in the 2017-18 Vijay Hazare Trophy.
On Thursday, Shaw had registered his fourth century in this season of the Vijay Hazare Trophy and became the leading run-scorer. Shaw’s ton came in Mumbai’s semifinal against Karnataka here at the Palam A Stadium.
Earlier this week, Shaw broke Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli’s record of the highest individual score by an Indian batsman in a List-A chase.
Prithvi achieved the feat when he hammered an unbeaten 185 off 123 balls against Saurashtra on Tuesday. While Dhoni had smashed a whirlwind unbeaten 183 against Sri Lanka in Jaipur in 2005, Kohli had hit 183 to steer India to a six-wicket win over Pakistan in the Asia Cup clash in Dhaka in 2012.
