Vijay Hazare 2021: Prithvi shaw’s magic continues as Mumbai enters final to play UP– Prithvi Shaw’s blistering century against Karantaka in the semifinal has helped Mumbai enter the final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021. The 21-year-old slammed 165 runs and the bowlers did the rest of the job for Mumbai. Karnataka were bowled out for just 250 runs. They had a dismal start as they lost the skipper R Samarth quite early while other batsmen except Padikkal failed to do well.

Mumbai will next face Karan Sharma-led Uttar Pradesh in the final on Sunday.

Devdutt Padikkal looked good for his half-century but he too departed after scoring fifty. He also broke Mayank Agarwal’s record of most runs in a Vijay Hazare Trophy, felling just 7 runs short of Prithvi Shaw. The latter has become the highest run-scorer in the tournament with 754 runs.
