Welcome to Sportstar's Highlights of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021-22 final between Himachal Pradesh and Tamil Nadu from the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

Himachal Pradesh beat Tamil Nadu by 11 runs (VJD Method).

The Vijay Hazare Trophy has a new winner in Himachal Pradesh, which cut short Tamil Nadu's bid for a record-extending sixth title. Himachal needed 16 runs to win off 15 balls when play was suspended due to poor light. The Rishi Dhawan-led side was declared winner as it was 11 runs ahead of the VJD Method (domestic equivalent of the D/L Method) requirement.

HIMACHAL PRADESH INNINGS

HP 299/4 in 47.3 overs: Late cut by Rishi to short third and a direct-hit on the striker's end but Arora was well inside the crease. Arora shuffles across and picks one at square leg. The umpires have decided that the light is not sufficient to continue and the players are walking back. Play is suspended. Himachal Pradesh wins its maiden title! The VJD Method required HP to be at 288 after 47.3 overs and it sits comfortably at 299.

HP 297/4 in 47 overs: Rishi clears his front leg to dig one out to long on. Wide on offside and Arora slices it for a single at deep point. Full and Rishi hammers it for just a single at deep mid wicket. Dropped! Jagadeesan floors an absolute sitter as Arora gets a top edge trying to cut it on the off. A couple and a single for Rishi to end the over.

HP 290/4 in 46 overs: Rishi eyeing the third man boundary as he plays a late dab in the same direction to collect a single. Arora returns strike with a single at mid wicket. Cut away by Rishi for one more at deep backward point. Wide down the leg side and the pressure is building on the TN bowlers. Swept away by Rishi for one more and he keeps the strike.

HP 284/4 in 45 overs: FOUR! Ashwin drifts onto Rishi's pads and he swivels and flicks it behind to the boundary. Cut to point and a quick single for Dhawan. The equation is down to 33 off 33 balls. One more for Arora with a gentle dab to short third. Single and a dot to end the over.

HP 277/4 in 44 overs: A gentle dab by Rishi at backward point and a misfield allows a couple. FOUR! A late dab again and this time past the keeper for a boundary at third man. FOUR! Second boundary in a row and Rishi plays it late along the ground past to the third man boundary again.

HP 265/4 in 43 overs: Googly from Ashwin and he almost traps Rishi in front. A couple of singles follow. FOUR! This was in the air as Rishi sliced it between short third and gully. FOUR! Horrible delivery short and wide outside off and Rishi wastes no time in dispatching it to the boundary behind point.

HP 254/4 in 42 overs: OUT! Amit is trapped in front and Aparajith strikes. Huge wicket! Amit tries to pull one that is not short enough and holes out. Skipper Rishi Dhawan walks in. SIX! Slog sweeps Aparajith over mid wicket off the second ball of his innings.

Arora backs away on leg and cuts through covers for a couple. FOUR! Steps out to Kishore and gets the elevation over mid off to find the boundary.

HP 224/3 in 39 overs: Another miscommunication between the batters and Arora this time sends Amit back and the latter scurries back and puts in a desperate dive at the non-striker's end to make his ground. He seems to have hurt himself in the process and the physio is out. Shankar using this as an opportunity to regroup. Top edge from Arora and it lands in the vacant area in front of square leg.

HP 219/3 in 38 overs: SIX! Arora unleashes. Steps out late to Aparajith and lifts it over the bowler's head all the way over the ropes. A huge mix up in the middle and skipper Shankar misses a golden opportunity to get Arora run out. He was sent back from the middle of the pitch and Shankar fumbled trying to collect and throw it quickly at the non-striker's end.

HP 209/3 in 37 overs: The pressure is building slowly for HP as Washington has Arora in a stranglehold. He looks to cut off the backfoot but finds the fielders on the off side.

HP 206/3 in 36 overs: FOUR! Amit picks the length early and sweeps Aparajith to the boundary behind square on the leg side. That brings up 200 on the board for HP.

Thus, in case the umpires decide to call off play now, HP will be declared champion.

HP 199/3 in 35 overs: Pace back on the ball as Warrier returns. FOUR! Came into Arora from an angle and he edged it past the keeper for a four. Whipped off the pads for a couple and that is a hundred for him off 95 balls. What a knock!

Good length on leg and Kishore prods the ball that moves away and hands an edge to first slip.

TN 15/1 in 5 overs: FOUR! Drifting down the leg and Kishore turns it away behind for a boundary. Five runs from the over.

TN 10/1 in 4 overs: Sharma continues. The full array of swing bowling at display here. He gets a couple to move in, then moves one away before keeping one straight. Jagadeesan drives between point and cover off the last ball for a couple.

TN 8/1 in 3 overs: Galetiya gets in to swing into Jagadeesan again and it hits him flush on the pads. Appeal struck down prompty as it was going done leg. FOUR! First bad ball of the day. Drifting down leg and in the slot and flicked away by Jagadeesan to the mid wicket boundary.

TN 3/1 in 2 overs: Sidharth Sharma from the other end and Jagadeesan on strike. Absolute peach from Sharma! Perfect line and length and jagged in menacingly into Jagadeesan to cut him in half. He is beaten! Pushed by Jagadeesan between point and cover and a single to end the over.

Pitched outside off and it came back in sharply and through Aparajith's front foot defence. Sai Kishore has been promoted to number three.

PITCH REPORT: It is a fresh wicket and no matches have been played on this strip so far in the tournament. Rajat Bhatia reckons the moisture on the surface will help the bowlers early on.

TOSS: Himachal Pradesh wins the toss and elects to bowl.

 

Himachal Pradesh vs Tamil Nadu - Final Preview

Since the 2019-20 season, Tamil Nadu has become by far the best domestic team in the country in the limited-overs format. After missing out in the finals of both the one-day and T20 titles in 2019, the team has now won back-to-back titles in the T20 competition (2020-21, 2021-22).

On Sunday, Tamil Nadu has a date with history to go for the double this year of sweeping the domestic white-ball tournaments, when it takes on Himachal Pradesh in the final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.

ALSO READ: Prashant Chopra: Return to form a result of not ‘hurrying for runs’

After prevailing over Saurashtra in a thrilling semifinal with a last-ball win chasing 311, TN goes into the final as firm favourites.

The team’s batters are in good form with every player chipping in with valuable performances throughout the tournament so far. There is depth in the side as Sai Kishore at eight has shown that he is more than capable of wielding the willow.

The bowling is spin dominant but TN will play in the main stadium for the first time this season where it has helped the medium pacers.

Having said that, TN will be wise not to take Himachal lightly. Though the team is playing in the final for the first time, it has been playing some aggressive brand of cricket.

Skipper Rishi Dhawan has led from the front with bat and ball this season amassing 415 runs and picking 14 wickets.

Opener Prashant Chopra tops the charts with 435 runs and the team’s medium-pacers are skilful in exploiting helpful conditions with the ability to rattle any top-order.

Himachal also has the advantage of having already played at this ground in the quarters and semis while it will be the first match for TN at this venue in this competition.
