Uttar Pradesh speedster Shivam Mavi stunned Mumbai with figures worth 4/41 in the preliminary quarter-finals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022-23. The skillful Mavi, who shot to fame for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL), trumped Prithvi Shaw in the fourth over. He rampaged through Mumbai's line-up, thereby pocketing his fourth four-fer of his List A career. We decode his stats.
How did the match pan out?
Mumbai tasted early blows and were 15/2 in 3.2 overs. Armaan Jaffer and skipper Ajinkya Rahane showed promise but failed to extend their stay in the middle. Hardik Tamore (53) and Shams Mulani (51) held their fort to pave the way for a 200-plus total (220/10). UP fetched a 119-run opening partnership and banked on skipper Karan Sharma (42*) to qualify for the quarter-finals.
Why does this story matter?

- The 24-year-old is having an exceptional campaign in the 50-over competition underway.
- He has the most wickets for Uttar Pradesh (14) and ranks fourth among leading wicket-takers in the tournament.
- Given Mavi's form at the moment, he will be banked heavily in the upcoming quarter-finals against a daunting-looking Maharashtra.
