For IPL 2023, all the teams have announced their retained and released players. During this, the Chennai team has also released some players from their team. These include the name of wicket-keeper batsman N Jagadeesan. N Jagadeesan has not been able to do anything special for Chennai so far. Thats why he was released before the mini-auction, but after that Jagadishan has now created history in Vijay Hazare Trophy and it looks like the Chennai team made a mistake by releasing him.
Playing for Tamil Nadu in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, N Jagadeesan scored a fine century against Arunachal Pradesh on Monday. Even before this, he has scored four consecutive centuries and now the fifth has also come. Earlier this record was of four consecutive centuries. Which was made by four batsmen. Virat Kohli scored four consecutive centuries in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in the years 2008 and 2009. After this, in the years 2020 and 2021, Prithvi Shaw scored four consecutive centuries. In the years 2021 and 2022, Ruturaj Gaikwad scored four consecutive centuries. At the same time, in the year 2020 and 2021, Devdutt Padikkal also did the work of scoring four centuries. Jagadeesan had already equaled this record, now his record has also been destroyed. That is, they have gone ahead of all.
With his fifth century in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Jagadishan has become the player with the most consecutive hundreds in List A cricket. He has also broken the record of Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara.
