A big upset has been seen in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Tripura gave a stellar performance and defeated the defending champion Saurashtra team, studded with star players, by 148 runs. This is Tripura's first win against Saurashtra in any format. Saurashtra's strong batting order fell apart like a pack of cards in front of 18-year-old young bowler Jaideep Dev. Chasing the target of 259 runs, the entire Saurashtra team ended up scoring just 110 runs.

Chasing the target of 259 runs, Saurashtra had a very bad start. Harvik Desai walked out after scoring just 5 runs. At the same time, Sheldon Jackson also returned to the pavilion after scoring only 3 runs. Chirag could not even open his account and Mura Singh clean-bowled him and showed him the way to the pavilion. Cheteshwar Pujara tried to handle the innings, but after scoring 24 runs, he too was found in front of the wickets on the ball of Brikmjeet.

At the score of 53, five Saurashtra batsmen had returned to the pavilion. After this, 18-year-old bowler Jaideep Dev of Tripura stole the show with his bowling. Jaideep, who came as the fifth bowler, dismissed the remaining five batsmen of Saurashtra, conceding only 15 runs in his 6.4 overs. Saurashtra's batsmen appeared completely helpless in front of Jaideep and the young bowler created a stir in his seven-over spell, giving Tripura a big win of 148 runs.

After losing the toss, Tripura, who came to bat first, did not have a good start and the team got its first blow in the third over. However, after this Sudeep Chatterjee and Bikram Das took over the team's innings and added 99 runs for the second wicket. Bikramkumar Das was out after scoring 59 runs. Whereas, Sudeep contributed 61 runs. Ganesh Satish also showed his talent with the bat and played a strong inning of 71 runs facing 74 balls, on the basis of which the Tripura team was successful in scoring 258 runs on the scoreboard after losing 8 wickets in 50 overs.
