2017 Vijay Hazare Trophy- round 3, round-up: Kedar Jadhav slams 57-ball 100; Kamalesh Nagarkoti bags hat-trick

Rajasthan's 17-year-old bowler Kamalesh Nagarkoti's hat-trick helped his team beat defending champions Gujarat by 14 runs

Kedar Jadhav’s dream run continues

Indian middle-order batsman Kedar Jadhav continued his good run in the ongoing 2017 Vijay Hazare Trophy as he scored a match-winning century for Maharashtra against Delhi in Cuttack. Kedar scored 113 off just 64 balls with 11 fours and 8 sixes and registered the fourth fastest List A century (off 57 balls) by an Indian batsman. Riding on the back of Jadhav’s knock, Maharashtra beat Delhi by 195 runs. With this win, Maharashtra have won their third consecutive match in the tournament while Delhi have suffered their third loss on the trot.

Uttar Pradesh’s miserable tournament continued as they slumped to a two-wicket loss to Tripura. Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman Sarfaraz Khan scored a steady century for UP but that couldn’t stop them from getting dismissed for 197. Bengal skipper led from the front and scored an unbeaten 116 in Bengal’s eight-wicket win over Goa. Tamil Nadu continued their unbeaten run in the tournament as they beat Himachal Pradesh by 8 wickets, thanks to Kaushik Gandhi’s unbeaten 107.

Jharkhand’s Ishank Jaggi continued his dream run in the 2016-17 season by scoring yet another century for his team. Saurabh Tiwary backed Jaggi and scored an unbeaten 102 in Jharkhand’s seven-wicket win over Services. Former Indian captain MS Dhoni didn’t get a chance to bat as both Jaggi and Tiwary put on a 214-run partnership for the fourth wicket in less than 30 overs. 

Indian Internationals had a mixed day in the office as Hardik Pandya starred with the ball for Baroda while Gautam Gambhir scored a fifty and his Delhi teammates Shikhar Dhawan, Ashish Nehra and Rishabh Pant failed to impress in this round. Karnataka skipper Manish Pandey and Gujarat’s Parthiv Patel had a forgettable outing for their respective teams. 

Rajasthan’s 17-year-old bowler Kamalesh Nagarkoti’s hat-trick helped his team beat defending champions Gujarat by 14 runs. Let us take a look at what happened on day 3 of the tournament.
