Shaw brought up his hundred off just 79 balls with the help of 12 fours and 3 sixes. His 165-run knock was laced with 17 fours and 7 sixes.

Shaw has led Mumbai in three games in the tournament and in these three games, Shaw returned with one double-century and two tons. He has taken his tally to 754 runs in the tournament at a staggering average of 188.5.

Earlier this week, Shaw broke Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli's record of the highest individual score by an Indian batsman in a List A chase. Prithvi achieved the feat when he hammered an unbeaten 185 off 123 balls against Saurashtra in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy on Tuesday.

While Dhoni had smashed a whirlwind unbeaten 183 against Sri Lanka in Jaipur in 2005, Kohli had hit 183 to steer India to a six-wicket win over Pakistan in the Asia Cup clash in Dhaka in 2012.
