Here is how Jharkhand's run in the Vijay Hazare Trophy unfolded.
Game 1: vs Tripura - Won by 8 Wickets
Game 2: vs Bengal - Lost by 163 Runs
Game 3: vs Assam - Lost by 7 Wickets
Game 4: vs Odisha - Won by 45 Runs
So won 2 and lost 2 and then knocked out on basis of inferior net run rate. The huge defeat against Bengal really hurt them in the final calculations.
Highlights for Jharkhand
- Saurabh Tiwary's back to the wall century against Assam. He is becoming an expert in playing these kind of knocks.
- New import Rituraj Singh's 5 wicket haul against Tripura
- Virat Singh - 170 @56.67
- Saurabh Tiwary - 154 @77
- Kumar Deobrat - 128 @42.67
Top Wicket takers
- Rahul Shukla - 7 @21.57
- Jaskaran Singh - 7 @29.57
- Rituraj Singh - 6 @29.17
The disappointing run continues. But lets hope the team performs better in the Ranji Trophy with the first game against Zonal mates Assam starting on December 14th.
