Prithvi Shaw’s second successive century powers Northants to victory | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Continuing his outstanding form from a recent double century, Prithvi Shaw showcased his brilliance once again, propelling Northamptonshire to a comfortable six-wicket triumph over Durham in the One-Day Cup on Sunday.

Reiterating his prowess as a remarkable striker, Shaw delivered an unbeaten century, amassing 125 runs from only 76 balls. His innings sparkled with 15 boundaries and seven maximums.

Effortlessly, Northamptonshire pursued the modest target of 198, exhibiting their dominance.
Pacer Luke Procter emerged as a standout performer, clinching four wickets for 34 runs from nine overs, as Northamptonshire effectively curtailed Durham to a score of 198 in 43.2 overs.
Powered by opener Shaw’s aggressive hundred, Northants overhauled the target in a mere 25.4 overs. Rob Keogh supported Shaw with a 40-ball 42 in the chase.

On August 9, the Mumbai batter had made a magnificent 244 off 153 balls and that innings contained 28 boundaries and 11 sixes. In that match, Northamptonshire defeated Somerset by 87 runs.
Shaw has been trying to make a comeback into the India side as the right-hander last played for India in a T20I match against Sri Lanka in 2021.
Shaw had played for West Zone in the season opening Duleep Trophy last month, but failed to make a significant impression.
