Jagadeesan has become the first-ever to score centuries in 5 consecutive innings in the 50-over format. Previously, Kumar Sangakkara in 2014-15, Alviro Peterson in 2015-16, and Devdutt Padikkal in 2020-21 scored 4-consecutive centuries in this format.

And now with his latest heroics, Jagadeesan has become the first-ever batter to make 5 consecutive centuries in the tournament. Moreover, with his double-centurion stand, Jagadeesan is now the highest-scorer in Men’s List A cricket. Previously, Alistair Brown held the record scoring 268 against Glamorgan in 2002.

Narayan Jagadeesan slammed 15 sixes to reach the ultimate score of 277, the most by any player in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Moreover, his strike rate for the knock, 191.45 is now the highest for a double-centurion score by any batter in List A cricket.
