Surat: Ravindra Jadeja became one of the few Indian players to have scored two triple centuries in first- class cricket as his unbeaten innings of 303 against Gujarat helped Saurashtra earn three valuable points in the second round of the Ranji Trophy on Monday.
Jadeja had scored his maiden triple century last season against Odisha. And in one of the flattest tracks on offer this season, the left-hander punished a listless Gujarat attack, adding a whopping 539 runs with wicketkeeper-batsman Sagar Jogiyani, who also scored a double century.
In reply to Gujarat’s first-innings total of 600 for nine declared, Saurashtra reached 716 for three at stumps on the fourth and final day of their Group A match, taking their lead beyond 115-run mark.
In a match that ended in a dull draw, just one wicket fell on the entire day and that too a run out in the last session.
