Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper Narayan Jagadeesan is currently batting on another planet in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022. Jagadeesan slammed his fifth consecutive ton (277) last evening against Arunachal Pradesh, which also broke the world record for the highest individual score in List-A cricket, surpassing Alistair Brown's 268 for Surrey.

Sitting at the top of the batting chart this season with 799 runs, Jagadeesan revealed that his mantra in batting is all about batting throughout the 50 overs.

Speaking with PTI, Jagadeesan said:

"It felt really good... I mean I think not only this game but even in the other games the only aim for me is to play 50 overs. Who the opposition is doesn't matter. There is one process for me, the aim is to stay in the middle.

The former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) player rated his knock against Haryana above others, including 277. The keeper played just seven IPL games during his four-year stint with CSK.

 Jagadeesan further added that he continuously worked on his fitness during the off-season, which has elevated his game even more.

"I have been working a lot on my batting and also my keeping and especially on my fitness. I have been doing it for some time now. Eventually when I score runs I feel good,"

Jagadeesan will be action on Wednesday when Tamil Nadu go up against Kerala in their final Elite Group C match.
