Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021: Prithvi Shaw, Aditya Tare's blistering knocks power Mumbai to title with win over Uttar Pradesh
This is Mumbai's fourth Hazare title and the one to remember for Shaw (827 runs), who now holds the record for highest runs scored in single edition of this competition.
Skipper Prithvi Shaw blazed his way to an unbeaten 185 off just 123 balls as Mumbai stormed into the semi-finals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy with a crushing nine-wicket win over Saurashtra. Meanwhile, UP reached the semi-final too with their 46-run win over Delhi.
If a rough estimation is to be believed, the BCCI-NCA spent at least Rs 1.5 crore, if not more, on the rehabilitation and recovery of Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi during the last two seasons.
Rajasthan's batting seems too dependent on their top three and the spin attack does not feature finger spinners.
