During the Vijay Hazare Trophy matchup, numerous records were broken.
During Monday’s Vijay Hazare Trophy matchup between Tamil Nadu and Arunachal Pradesh, numerous records were broken. Tamil Nadu scored 506/2 in 50 overs, the highest total ever in a List-A match while playing in Bangalore. They beat England’s previous record of 498 runs in an ODI against the Netherlands with this score.
In addition, Tamil Nadu batsman Narayan Jagdeesan made history by scoring his fifth consecutive century, making him the first player in cricket history to do so. Numerous former cricketers have come forward to express their gratitude to Tamil Nadu and Jagdeesan for their achievements since this historic event took place. Greetings have been pouring in from all over the country ever since.
Dinesh Karthik, a wicketkeeper and batsman for India, sent a series of tweets in which he thanked Jagdeesan and Sai Sudarasan for winning the tournament. However, he also questioned the organizers for selecting Arunachal Pradesh to compete against a top team like Tamil Nadu.
“Warning: World Record!@Jagadeesan_200 put in such an incredible effort. I am overjoyed for him.#5outta5 holds great potential. What an incredible tournament so far, Sai Sudarshan. It’s killing with this opening combo. Congratulations, boys @TNCACricket #VijayHazareTrophy,” Karthik wrote on Twitter.
Karthik wrote in another tweet, “Additionally, a side note. Is it reasonable for the elite teams to play the northeast teams in the league phase? It simply lowers teams’ run rates, and imagine what would happen if a match against one of these teams was postponed due to rain! Can’t they form a separate group and then compete for a spot?
38 teams compete in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, which is broken up into five groups. There is a Northeast-based team in each group, but none of them has yet to win a match in the tournament.
Tamil Nadu batted first in the match, and Jagdeesan and Sudarasan scored 277 and 154 runs, respectively, to thrash the Arunachal bowlers.
They went on to make an opening stand of 416 runs in 38.3 overs, which is now the highest partnership in List A cricket history.
After scoring 154 runs in just 102 balls, including 19 fours and 2 sixes, Sudharsan was dropped, and Chetan Anand sent Jagdeesan back. The innings was then anchored by Baba Indrajith and Baba Aprajith, who achieved a total of 506/2 for Tamil Nadu in 50 overs.
