Mumbai captain and opener Prithvi Shaw crossed 800 runs in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021 tournament on Sunday (March 14). He is the first player to register over 800 runs in a single season of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Shaw had already broken Mayank Agarwal's record of scoring most runs in a single Vijay Hazare Trophy edition. Agarwal had managed to score 734 runs in the 2017-18 edition.

In the ongoing edition, the 21-year-old scored 827 runs after smashing 39-ball 73 in the final against Uttar Pradesh. The tournament has been hugely rewarding for Shaw as he four hundred in the eighth innings, which included a double hundred against Puducherry.

Shaw also has the highest score for an Indian captain in List A chase. He left MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli's highest score of 183 behind with an unbeaten 185-run knock against Saurashtra.

In the final of the tournament, Shaw did his part by giving Mumbai a flying start in a chase of 313 runs. Shaw finally fell for 73 runs in 39 balls. However, thanks to his fifty and Aditya Tare's 118*, Mumbai won the final by 6 wickets and became four-time Vijay Hazare Trophy champions.
