Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022 Final: Saurashtra defeated Maharashtra by 5 wickets

Saurashtra lifted the Vijay Hazare Trophy by 5 wickets against Maharashtra. Sheldon Jackson mustered a fine century in the finale. His unbeaten 133 concealed Ruturaj Gaikwad’s ton as the team chased down 249 with three overs still in hand. Saurashtra bagged their second Vijay Hazare trophy, lifting the first in 2007-2008.

Maharashtra’s captain found himself in a helpless position as Chirag Jani’s army had put breaks at regular intervals. The all-rounder also had his hat trick that restricted Maharashtra to just 249/8 in 50 overs. Gaikwad on the other hand became the first cricketer to score 4 centuries in one edition, two times. In his third successive ton, he mustered a double century followed by 168 runs in the knockouts.
