CHENNAI: Narayan Jagadeesan continued his rich vein of form with a magnificent double hundred while his opening partner B Sai Sudharsan smashed his third century of the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy (50 overs) as the Tamil Nadu batters rewrote plenty of records in the Group C match against Arunachal Pradesh at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Monday.
Invited to bat first, Tamil Nadu posted a world-record total of 506 for two off its stipulated overs, riding on a 416-run first-wicket alliance between the in-form Jagadeesan (277 off 141 balls, 25 fours, 15 sixes) and Sai Sudharsan (154 off 102 balls, 19 fours, 2 sixes).
After Jagadeesan and Sai Sudharsan made mincemeat of the Arunachal attack, the Baba brothers – Aparajith (31 not out off 32 balls) and skipper Indrajith (31 not out off 26 balls, 1 four) – decided to slow down, but still managed to steer Tamil Nadu past the 500-run mark.
