Ranji Cup: Sheldon Jackson, Arpit Vasavada Tons turn the tables for Saurashtra


Sheldon Jackson and captain Arpit Vasavada each scored a century as Saurashtra turned the game around against Karnataka, scoring 364 to 4 in their first inning in response to 407 on the third day of the Ranji Trophy semi-final at here on Friday. Jackson, who started with an overnight score of 27, hit 160 of 245 balls and decorated his shot with 23 touchlines and two sixs, while Vasavada remained undefeated with 112 (219 balls) , 15×4) as the duo shared 232 runs for the fourth racket. bring Saurashtra back to the competition. Putting the Vasavada company in a difficult situation was Chirag Jani (19 did not go out). Saurashtra overcame Karnataka in just 43 runs with six racquets in hand and two days left to play.

Continuing with an overnight score of 76-2, Saurashtra didn’t get off to a good start as they lost to Harvik Desai (33) in five rounds, trapped by LBW by Vasuki Koushik.

But then the change happened when Jackson and Vasavada shook hands and patiently played to build a partnership.

The duo showed a classic playing temperament, protecting the ball well but not afraid to throw bad serves to the side.

The Karnataka pitchers were utterly frustrated when they failed to break the partnership or cause trouble for the duo, who looked so determined.

Off-spinner Krishnappa Gowtham (1/68) finally broke the partnership in the 98th minute, trapping Jackson in front of the racket but by then it was too late as Saurashtra had finished the hard work of captain Karnataka Mayank Agarwal, who scored 249 in the first innings to more or less single-handedly take his team past the 400-run mark.
