It’s going to be some action-packed cricket on Monday (November 28) as the quarter-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 50-over competition kicks off today. Tamil Nadu’s record batsman Narayan Jagadeesan will be in action against Cheteshwar Pujara’s Saurashtra in one of the last eight clashes. Jagadeesan has scored 822 runs in seven matches in this tournament at an average of 164.4 on a top score of 277, the highest List A score ever.
Four-time champions Karnataka will take on Punjab, while Jammu & Kashmir will take on Assam, securing their first quarter-final qualification from Vijay Hazare. Maharashtra will take on former champions Uttar Pradesh in the fourth quarter clash.
Tamil Nadu’s opening duo of Jagadeesan and Sai Sudharsan have been in sensational form this season, with the latter scoring 586 runs in 7 matches at an average of 83.7.325 and a best of 154.
Meanwhile, it is also the last day to apply for the national selectors position with the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) after the Indian cricket board published an announcement last week.
