Establishing New World Records

Narayan Jagadeesan monopolized Tamil Nadu's batting innings by smashing his fifth straight century at the competitions, establishing a world record for the highest number of consecutive centuries in List A cricket. He went on to achieve a double century and 277 runs in 141 balls until being bowled out by Arunachal Pradesh's Chetan Anand.

When batting first, the opening pair of Narayan Jagadeesan and Sai Sudharsan for Tamil Nadu amassed 416 runs, the highest partnership for any wicket in the history of List A cricket.

Techi Doria bowled out Sudharsan (154 runs off 102) in the 39th over to break the massive alliance. Jagadessan returned soon after in the 42nd over. Tamil Nadu's innings concluded with a score of 506/2 after the third wicket partnership of 58 runs between Baba Aparajith and Indrajith.

The Batting Order of Arunachal Pradesh crumbles like House of Cards.

In pursuit, Arunachal Pradesh's batting unit experienced a catastrophic collapse because none of the batters could contribute significantly to the match. Ever since openers Rohan Sharma and Neelam Obi were dismissed in the powerplay with scores of 2(22) and 4(13), respectively, the middle-order batsmen failed to establish themselves.

M Siddarth of Tamil Nadu put a stop to the batters' torment by collecting a magnificent five-wicket haul.

Siddarth blitzed through the Arunachal Pradesh batting order and quickly ended their innings, accumulating 5/12 in 7.4 overs. During the first inning, the Tamil Nadu team and players broke numerous records. While Tamil Nadu enrolled the highest team cumulative in List A cricket, Jagadeesan broke multiple records on the field by himself.

Previous Record Holders

Virat Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal, Prithvi Shaw, and Ruturaj Gaikwad's record of four centuries in one contest was broken by Jagadeesan, who also broke the record for the most back-to-back hundreds in List A games.

In addition, he set a new record for most sixes hit in an innings by a batter by hammering 15 sixes against a timid Arunachal Pradesh. The previous high was held by Yashasvi Jaiswal, who hit 12 sixes. Jagadeesan's 277(141) score is the highest in List A history.

Dinesh Karthik, the wicketkeeper-batsman for India and former captain of Tamil Nadu, posted a series of Twitter posts in which he applauded Jagdeesan and Sai Sudarasan but confronted the organizers' decision to pit Arunachal Pradesh against an elite team such as Tamil Nadu.
