N Jagadeesan broke Virat Kohli’s 13-year-old recordJagadeesan scored a knock of 277 vs Arunachal Pradesh Jagadeesan has scored five consecutive tons in Vijay Hazare trophy Every year India’s domestic competitions throw a new name who are ready to take the world by storm and this time around it has been Tamil Nadu’s N Jagadeesan. The Ex-Chennai Super Kings (CSK) player has been in incredible run of form in the 2022/23 season and has shattered the records books with the bat.
He had crowing glory moment on Monday (November 21) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in a match against minnows Arunachal Pradesh. After Arunachal decided to bowl first after winning the toss, Jagadeesan alongside opening partner Sai Sudarsan punished the opposition as the duo put up a massive 416-run opening partnership.
While Sudarsan made a 150, Jagadeeshan was the destroyer in chief as he made a score of 277 with 25 boundaries and 15 sixes. He broke Rohit Sharma’s record (264) to achieve the national record and later the world record set by AD Brown (268) to register the highest score in List A cricket. This was Jageedasan’s fifth consecutive century making him the first player to achieve the feat in history of the 50-over format at any level and broke Kumar Sangakkara’s record set in the 2015 World Cup.
Jagadeeshan has also broken a 13-year-old record of Virat Kohli and now has scored the most number of centuries in a single edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Kohli had hit four tons in the 2008-09 season of the competition and this feat has been matched by Pritvhi Shaw (2020-21), Ruturaj Gaikwad (2021-22), and Devdutt Padikkal (2020-21) in the last few years.
Most centuries in single Vijay Hazare trophy season
5* – Narayan Jagadeesan (22-23)
4 – Virat Kohli (’08-09)
4 – Prithvi Shaw (’20-21)
4 – Devdutt Padikkal (’20-21)
4 – Ruturaj Gaikwad (’21-22)
The 2008-09 season of the competition had taken place just after Kohli’s India debut and served as a launching pad for him to earn a recall to the team after which he has never looked back. Playing for Delhi, Kohli scored 534 runs in 7 matches with a strike-rate of 108.53.
Talking about Jagadeesan, he was released by CSK just last week ahead of the 2023 season. The wicket-keeper batter will hope that his performances in domestic cricket will help him get a buyer during the IPL mini-auction on December 23.
