The Jharkhand team has been making most of the headlines in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy 2017. This can largely be credited to the fact that they are being led by MS Dhoni. The team was involved in yet another close contest against Hyderabad recently. Chasing a modest 203 for the win, the MS Dhoni-led unit fell short by 21 runs in the run chase. In the group A encounter between Punjab and Haryana, it was the old warhorse Harbhajan Singh who spun a web across the Haryana line-up to bundle them up for 196 with a four-wicket haul. Gurkeerat Mann remained unbeaten on 91 for Punjab to help them chase down the target.

Maharashtra had a dose of their own medicine when they were taken away for aplenty during their match against Uttar Pradesh. Openers Prashant Gupta (129) and Shivam Chaudhary (116) added 249 runs for the opening stand in the match for UP. Their efforts saw UP post 370/5 in their 50 overs. Maharashtra, in their reply, could only manage 266/10 in 38.5 overs with Kedar Jadhav top scoring with 68. It was Piyush Chawla who bagged a five-wicket haul for UP in the match.

Playing against Tripura, Delhi skipper Rishabh Pant powered his side to 356 in their 50 overs with a 72-ball 99. He was well supported by an unbeaten 72 off just 48 balls by Milind Kumar. Tripura skipper Yashpal Singh remained unbeaten on 115 as his side fell short by 70 runs. Gujarat steamrolled Andhra in the group C fixture. Riding on skipper Parthiv Patel’s ton, they posted 288 on the board. It was Jasprit Bumrah’s 4/29 with the ball that broke the back of Andhra lineup which bundled out for 106.

Ankit Kushwah bagged a five-for against Goa for the Madhya Pradesh team. In the batting, MP were led by skipper Naman Ojha’s unbeaten ton that saw them chase 290 with 7 wickets in hand. Heavyweights Bengal and Mumbai clashed in a highly anticipated match. Bengal crawled to 230 in their innings kudos to Abhimanyu Easwaran’s 127. Mumbai bundled out for 134 in the run chase with Pragyan Ojha and Sayan Ghosh bagging 3 wickets each.
