Fans Troll CSK For Not Retaining Narayan Jagadeesan After Youngster Breaks World Record In List-A Cricket

Fans Troll CSK For Not Retaining Narayan Jagadeesan After Youngster Hits Breaks World Record In List-A Cricket

26-year-old Tamil Nadu batsman Narayan Jagadeesan is batting like a dream and shattering records in List-A cricket in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy.

After hitting 4 centuries in 4 consecutive matches, Jagadeesan went even two steps further to register the highest-ever individual List-A score in men’s cricket.

On Monday, Tamil Nadu opener Narayan Jagadeesan took the attention of the world as he played an incredible inning of 277 runs off 141 balls against Arunachal Pradesh at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, breaking the 20-year-old record of 268 by Alistair Brown against Glamorgan in 2002.

Jagadeesan and his opening partner Sai Sudharsan, who scored 154 off 102 balls, put up a stunning opening stand of 416 runs in 38.3 overs. Eventually, Tamil Nadu piled up 506 runs in their 50 overs.

Jagadeesan’s 277 is also the highest score in all List A cricket, surpassing 271 not out by Sripali Weerakkody against Pushpadana Ladies in the 2007 Sri Lanka Women’s One-Day tournament.

The right-hander became the first player to score hundreds in 5 consecutive innings in men’s List A cricket. Earlier, three batsmen had scored 4 hundred on a trot - Kumar Sangakkara in 2014-15, Alviro Petersen in 2015-16, and Devdutt Padikkal in 2020-21.

Also, 5 centuries for Jagadeesan in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy are the most by any batter in any season of this tournament; Virat Kohli (2008-09), Devdutt Padikkal (2020-21), Prithvi Shaw (2020-21), and Ruturaj Gaikwad (2021-22) - all had hit four hundreds each.

He took 114 balls to reach his double century, which is also now the joint-fastest to 200 runs in a List-A inning, equalling Travis Head’s record against Queensland in the Marsh One-Day Cup last year.

Jagadeesan smoked 15 sixes in his epic knock - the most by any batter in a Vijay Hazare Trophy innings. He has amassed 799 runs in the tournament already, which is the second most by a batter in a single edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy. The record for most runs in an edition is 827 by Prithvi Shaw during the 2020-21 season.

Tamil Nadu’s score in this match against Arunachal, the first team to score 500-plus runs in men’s List A cricket. The previous highest was 498 for 4 by England against the Netherlands earlier this year.

Fans troll CSK for releasing Narayan Jagadeesan:

Less than 10 days ago, the Chennai Super Kings had released Narayan Jagadeesan from their squad. The cricketer had been at CSK for the past 5 seasons - from 2018 to 2022 - but only got to play in 7 matches, and only 2 in IPL 2022 after the team was eliminated from the playoff race. 

Now that days after CSK released him, Narayan Jagadeesan smashed these runs in the VJT, fans trolled the CSK management for their decision to not show faith in the youngster.

Here are some of the reactions of fans on Twitter:
