Mumbai vs Tamil Nadu: A sparkling 123 by Prithvi Shaw and a 62-ball 57 by Shreyas Iyer helped set the stage for a respectable total for Mumbai. Coming together at 8/1, the duo added 98-runs for the third wicket until on song Iyer edged Vijay Shankar to the wicketkeeper. Shaw continued to hold the fort.

After he was sent back by R Ashwin for 123, Aditya Tare and Abhishek Nayar continued to build on the platform. However, the dismissal of the captain by Vijay Shankar late in the day left Mumbai on 308 for six. He also followed up with the wicket of Vijay Gohil to leave the hosts on 314 for seven at stumps. 

Suryakumar Yadav contributed 39 runs earlier in the innings while Siddhesh Lad made 18 until he was sent back by Ashwin.

Shaw, who had helped build the innings even as he lost partners, said, “I was not thinking about the wickets we lost. I just tried to stay as long as possible at the crease and score as many runs as I could.

“I was not thinking that Ashwin sir is bowling, but I just planned that if I dominated it would be a good sign. I was playing him normally as I played against all the spinners,” he added when asked about batting opposite the senior off spinner.

Looking back, however, Shaw does regret missing out on an opportunity to score a double century. “The 200 wasn’t on my mind, I just wanted to bat as long as possible. I don’t know what happens to me after getting a 100. I didn’t plan much. It was a very good opportunity. It was challenging to play against Ashwin. I missed my double hundred, and that hurt the team a bit too,” he said.

Speaking about the difference at the first-class level and junior cricket he said, “The main difference is with the bowler’s pace. There are pace bowlers at the U-19 level but they are lacking in experience comparatively to Ranji Trophy pacers. As Ranji Trophy bowlers play a lot of matches, they know how to bowl on different types of wickets and take wickets.”

While saying that he has learnt consistency from watching players in the India ‘A’ and Mumbai squad, the batsman who has three tons from four first-class matches added, “When I played for India Under-19 and got an opportunity to train under Rahul (Dravid) sir, I learnt lot of things. Here also Sameer (Dighe) sir helped me a lot and I think such type of experiences help in a youngster’s growth as a cricketer,” he mentioned.
