Young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal scored an unbeaten double century as West Zone consolidated their position with 376 for three in the second innings of the Duleep Trophy final against South Zone on the third day of the five-day match on Friday.

Young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal scored an unbeaten double century as West Zone consolidated their position with 376 for three in the second innings of the Duleep Trophy final against South Zone on the third day of the five-day match on Friday. Jaiswal hit 23 fours and three sixes in his unbeaten innings of 244 balls. After trailing by 57 runs in the first innings due to his brilliant batting, West Zone made a spectacular comeback to take a lead of 319 runs at the end of the day’s play with seven wickets remaining.

During this, Jaisawal strengthened the team by making an unbroken partnership of 169 with Shreyas Iyer (71) for the third wicket and 58 runs with Sarfaraz Khan (30 not out) for the fourth wicket. Earlier, South Zone started the day at 318 for seven, but with just nine runs in it, the entire team’s innings was reduced. Jaiswal, who scored just one run in the first innings, started positively in the second innings with quick runs against pacers Basil Thampi and CV Stephen.

He shared a 110-run partnership for the first wicket with Priyank Panchal (40) at the rate of five runs per over. South zone skipper Hanuma Vihari delayed Sai Kishore’s pace (2 for 100) in the attack. However, Sai Kishore made Panchal go as soon as he took charge of the ball. Krishnappa Gautam (1 for 139) then took the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane (15). Captain Rahane once again disappointed with the bat. Jaiswal and Iyer then took advantage of the easier batting conditions to score runs against the spinners.

Iyer hit four fours and two sixes in his 113-ball innings. West Zone will try to declare innings by batting in one more session later in the day after batting conditions ease, giving its bowlers five sessions to take South Zone’s 10 wickets. South Zone must at least tie this match to win the title. The team can win the title by chasing the goal or on the basis of the lead in the first lap.
