With this feat, Azharuddeen became the first player from Kerala to hit a ton in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He now holds the record of second-fastest century in this tournament. Rishabh Pant’s 32-ball hundred is the quickest.
Kerala won the toss and asked Mumbai to bat first. For Mumbai, Yashasvi Jaiswal along with Aditya Tare added 88 in the first ten overs. Important contributions from team skipper Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube and others helped Mumbai post a gigantic 196/7 after 20 overs. For Kerala Jalaj Saxena and KM Asif claimed three wickets each, while MD Nidheesh got one wicket.
Replying to Mumbai’s 196, Kerala opener Robin Uthappa and Azharuddeen started perfectly. Uthappa and Azharuddeen added 129 runs for the first wicket, before Shams Mulani removed Uthappa in the 10th over. However, this failed to impact Azharuddeen’s momentum as he continued to demolish Mumbai bowlers.
