Aged 162, he surpassed former captain David Seales’ record of 50 runs for Northamptonshire in 2006 and surpassed the county record of 172 runs set by Wayne Larkins, achieved in a 40-run game in 1983.

Whiteman bowled Lamb with 369, and Shaw eventually left three balls from the end of the inning, catching the ball in deep center from the same bowler, when five more balls fell in eight tries. to run.

It was Shaw’s second double century in 50-plus cricket after taking 227 steps for Mumbai in February 2021.
