In the Hazare Trophy, Jharkhand players are going strong. Rahul Shukla has scalped nine in three games at a healthy average. I'm not sure if he's still bowling as fast as he was in the IPL, but his career average and strike rate, having started recently, are quite good in ODs. Still, too far from an India berth- not so much for Ishank Jaggi and Saurabh Tiwary. Both are coming close to 50 ODs, and average close to 50 (Ishank's is over 50), and Ishank is in the top ten run-scorers list.
Now, Vidarbha have scored 283/6, and had Services in a spot of bother, at 32/3- with Umesh Yadav squeezing them. Once Yadav was taken off, the Services blokes consolidated at 93/3, with their heavyweights, Yashpal and Rajat getting starts. This match is more about Umesh Yadav getting plenty of wickets than anything else.
