While Mumbai went on to post a comfortable victory, the talk of the match was centered around Shaw, who was making his first appearance after being suspended for ingesting a banned substance from a cough syrup.

Shaw’s splendid knock saw him smash a total of seven fours and two massive sixes. Upon reaching the half century mark, Shaw was seen making a gesture with his bat suggesting that his bat will do the talking.

However, his gesture did not go we with the fans, who felt that he was projecting himself as being over confident.

The match saw both Shaw and Tare put on a 138 run stand for the opening wicket, which eventually paved way for Mumbai to post a mammoth total of 206. In reply, the Assam batters couldn’t get going and surrendered for just 123.
