The pre-quarterfinal matches of the Vijay Hazare Trophy have begun. In the meantime, teams from Rajasthan and Karnataka have come face to face in Jaipur. Rajasthan batted east but their start has caught a bad eye. Apart from the captain, no batsman dared to make any effort to settle down on the wicket. Rajasthan captain Deepak Hooda was seen taking iron alone from the Karnataka bowlers on the field. In doing so, he scored a fast-paced century in the match, which helped Rajasthan to give Karnataka a fighting total. He scored as many runs alone as the rest of the team's batsmen did not score together.
The Rajasthan captain tried to avert the looming threat to the team alone. He also succeeded to some extent in this effort. However, Rajasthan could not play the entire 50 overs and lost by scoring 199 runs in just 41.4 overs. But 109 runs in these 199 runs were captain Deepak Hooda alone.
Deepak Hooda's century innings have 5 sixes, 9 fours: Deepak Hooda hit these runs off 109 balls. He also hit 5 sixes and 9 fours in his innings at a strike rate of 100. This was Deepak Hooda's fourth century in List A. Apart from captain Deepak Hooda's century for Rajasthan, the second-highest run-scorer was Samarth Joshi, who has scored 33 runs. Number 8 batsman Ravi Bishnoi was the third-highest score for 17 runs. 8 batsmen of the team were dismissed for a single digit in the match. Which also had a double account opening for 2. For Karnataka, Vijay Kumar took the most 4 wickets while K Gautam took 2 wickets. Deepak Hooda's current Vijay Hazare Trophy has now gone up to 198 runs after 6 matches after scoring a century against Karnataka. His best score is 109 runs. He also hit 16 fours and 8 sixes.
