Prithvi Shaw’s Debut Innings For Northamptonshire In 50-Over Competition Ends In A Hit-Wicket

Opening batter Prithvi Shaw’s debut for Northamptonshire in the One-day Cup ended in an bizarre fashion after being out hit wicket on 34 against Gloucestershire. Shaw was trying to get Northants out of a batting collapse which saw them lose five wickets quickly. He and Lewis McManus were in a process of resurrecting the innings, and took Northants past 50. But Gloucestershire fast-bowler Paul van Meekeren bowled a sharp bouncer which Shaw tried to hook against. But he couldn’t keep his balance and while going around, he fell down and disturbed his stumps in the process, resulting in his dismissal.

Shaw was in disbelief for some time, before making the long road back to the pavilion after making 34 off 35 balls, leaving Northants at 54-6. Though Tom Taylor scored a century, it couldn’t prevent Northants from falling to a 29-run loss in Cheltenham.
