Mumbai Cricket prodigy Prithvi Shaw slammed his fourth century against Odisha on Wednesday, November 1 in the Ranji Trophy.

This was Shaw’s fourth century in five first-class matches. Among Indian batsman, only one player had more first-class hundreds before the age of 18, master-blaster, Sachin Tendulkar, who had 7 tons.

Shaw hit a fluent 105 (of 153 balls) against Odisha and maintained an impressive strike rate of 68.63 throughout his innings, Shaw scored 18 boundaries before falling leg before wicket to Basant Mohanty in the 44th over.

Shaw was also the youngest player to score a century on his Duleep Trophy debut. He represented the Indian Board President’s XI in a one-day warm-up game and scored 66 which also drew praise from Kiwis pacer Trent Boult.

Shaw was excluded from the U-19 Asia Cup squad and was asked to represent Mumbai in Ranji Trophy.
