Chasing a target of 285, Shaw played an unbeaten knock of 185 off 123 deliveries to guide Mumbai to the semi-finals of the tournament. The 21-year-old smashed 21 fours and 7 sixes as Mumbai chased down the target in 41.5 overs, with 9 wickets remaining.

 

Notably, this was also the highest individual score by an Indian cricketer in List A matches while chasing. With his knock on Tuesday, Shaw surpassed MS Dhoni’s 183* against Sri Lanka (2005) and Virat Kohli‘s 183 against Pakistan (2012).
