In another group match, Andhra scored a 76-run victory over Kerala. It was Kerala’s first defeat as TN continued its profitable run.
Sent to bat by Harayana captain Himanshu Rana, Tamil Nadu bowled Jagadeesan’s 128 (123 balls, 6 fours, 6 sixes) and fellow opening batsman B Sai Sudharsan’s 67 (74 balls, 5 fours, 1 six) to score 284 for seven in 50 overs.

An opening stand of 151 runs between Jagadeesan and Sudharsan in just over 26 shows saw Tamil Nadu grab the advantage.
Jagadeesan’s hundred makes him the fourth batsman after Kumar Sangakkara, Alviro Petersen and Devdutt Padikkal to score centuries in four consecutive List A innings. His previous centuries came against Andhra, Chhattisgarh and Goa.
Jagadeesan hit six fours and two sixes in his quick innings while Sudaresan, who was in fine form in the tournament, rewarded him with a stroke.
The Haryana bowlers seemed to be struggling to find ways to contain the TN batters when Jagadeesan and Sudharsan were in the crease. Sudhrasan fell on left spinner Nishant Sindhu.
B Aparajith (3) and B Indrajith (2) fell quickly to Mohit Sharma (2/43) and Haryana had more success when J Kousik (5) was dismissed by Anshul Kamboj.
This led to Jagadeesan creasing and power hitting Shah Rukh Khan (46) and they added 61 runs in quick time.
In reply, Haryana fell to 2 for 2 in the second as openers CK Bishnoi and Yuvraj Singh fell to Sandeep Warrier (2/33) and M Mohammed (2/37) respectively.
Haryana never recovered from a poor start and continued to lose wickets at regular intervals to be out for 133 in 28.3 overs.
Off-spinner Aparajith was the best bowler for Tamil Nadu with 3 for 24 while R Sonu Yadav picked up two wickets.
