New Delhi, India

Jagadeesan missed out on a triple-hundred by just 23 runs but received a standing ovation from his teammates while his way back to the dressing room. Social media too was set ablaze

Tamil Nadu batter Narayan Jagadeesan scripted history on Monday as he smashed 277 off just 141 deliveries against Arunachal Pradesh in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. With this mammoth figure, the 26-year-old surpassed the tally of  England’s Alistair Brown who had scored 268 for Surrey against Glamorgan in 2002 to set the then-record for the highest individual score in List A cricket. He also went past Rohit Sharma’s record of 268 (scored in an ODI) which was the highest individual total by an Indian in the 50-over format.

It was Jagadeesan’s fifth consecutive century in the tournament while also allowed him to set the record for hundreds in men’s List A cricket. He shattered the record of former Sri Lanka skipper Kumara Sangakkara (4 tons in the 2015 World Cup), former South Africa batter Alviro Petersen (4 tons in Momentum One-day Cup 2015-16) and Indian batter Devdutt Padikkal (4 tons in Vijay Hazare Trophy 2020-21).

At the same time, social media too was set ablaze as the netizens began to congratulate the Tamil Nadu star.

Here’re the reactions:

Jagadeesan smashed a total of 15 sixes during his innings of 277 runs which is now the most by any batter in a Vijay Hazare Trophy innings. Mumbai batter Yashasvi Jaiswal held the previous best of 12 maximums which he hit during his 203 against Jharkhand in the 2019-20 season.
