“Does it make sense”: Dinesh Karthik’s Rant Over Vijay Hazare Trophy Format

Written by Abhishek Patil

Numerous records tumbled during the Vijay Hazare Trophy clash between Tamil Nadu and Arunachal Pradesh on Monday. Playing in Bangalore, Tamil Nadu posted 506/2 in 50 overs and registered the highest-ever total in a List-A match. With this record, they surpassed England who had posted 498 runs in an ODI against the Netherlands.

Apart from this, Tamil Nadu batter Narayan Jagdeesan also achieved a rare feat as he smashed his fifth consecutive century and became the first player in the history of cricket to do so. Ever since this historic moment took place, wishes from all over the country have been pouring in and many former cricketers came forward to congratulate Tamil Nadu and Jagdeesan on their achievements. 

India wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik shared a series of tweets in which he congratulated Jagdeesan and Sai Sudarasan, but he also questioned the organisers for making Arunachal Pradesh play against an elite team like Tamil Nadu. 

Vijay Hazare Trophy consists of 38 teams, divided into five groups. Every group features a team from the Northeast region and so far none of them has won a single match in the tournament.
