Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018-19, Day 2 Round-Up: Nadeem breaks world record, Gambhir, Pujara shine
It was a mixed day for Team India veterans on the second day of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018-19 - Gautam Gambhir and Cheteshwar Pujara scored fifties, left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem shattered a two-decade-old world record en route an 8-fer, even as Robin Uthappa (Saurashtra) and Stuart Binny (Karnataka) failed to fire.
U-19 stars Unmukt Chand and Rishabh Pant were dismissed cheaply while likes of Ishan Porel, a member of the 2018 U-19 World Cup squad, and Mayank Dagar had a solid day with the ball, picking up three and four wickets respectively.
