Vijay Hazare round-up: Tripathi, Jaiswal, Jagadeesan and Riyan Parag dazzle

Each of the aforementioned batters struck whirlwind tons on Thursday

Jaiswal ton in vain as Maharashtra edge Mumbai in high-scoring thriller

Maharashtra 342/2 (50.0) beat Mumbai 321 all-out (49.0) by 21 runs

Yashasvi Jaiswal scored his second ton in as many matches on Thursday, but his 142 went in vain as Mumbai fell 21 runs short of the 343 set by Maharashtra. Prithvi Shaw (32 off 25), Armaan Jaffer (36 off 34) and Tushar Deshpande (24 off 11) all played effective cameos, but lack of sustained support for Jaiswal saw Mumbai fall short. That Maharashtra posted 342/2 in their 50 overs was thanks to Rahul Tripathi, who posted his highest ever List A score (156*). 

Experienced Pandey, Samarth guide Karnataka over the line against Delhi

Karnataka 161/6 (29.4) beat Delhi 159 all-out (45.4) by 4 wickets

After bowling Delhi out for 159, Karnataka had a slight wobble but were guided over the line thanks to effective contributions from Ravikumar Samarth (59) and Manish Pandey (48). The contest, played at the Jadavpur University ground in Kolkata, witnessed Shreyas Gopal shine with both bat (26 off 31) and ball (3/25). 

Rahul Shukla, Saurabh Tiwary, Utkarsh Singh shine as Jharkhand triumph over Rajasthan

Jharkhand 271/5 (49.0) beat Rajasthan 270 all-out (49.0) by 5 wickets

A fantastic ton from opener Yash Kothari (139) and a fine fifty from Mahipal Lomror (52) powered Rajasthan to 270, but it didn’t prove to be enough on the day as Jharkhand, on the back of fine contributions from Utkarsh Singh (91), Saurabh Tiwary (76) and Kumar Kushagra (41*), got over the line with an over to spare. Earlier in the game, Rahul Shukla shone for Jharkhand, picking the fifth five-wicket haul of his List A career (5/53).
