Watch: In the 2023/24 Vijay Hazare Trophy quarter-final, Yuzvendra Chahal ran through the Bengal middle-order with figures of 4-37.

Asked to bat, Bengal found themselves in trouble in the quarter-final at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. Sumit Kumar’s (2-27) strikes reduced them to 50-2.

Left out of India’s World Cup squad as well as the subsequent T20I squads against Australia and in Australia, Yuzvendra Chahal has earned a recall to the ODI side for the South Africa tour.


Here, Ashok Menaria introduced him as the third-change bowler. Early in his spell, Chahal had wicketkeeper Abishek Porel caught at long-on. He then trapped Ritwik Roy Chowdhury, rooted to the crease, leg-before, while Pradipta Pramanik mistimed a slog and was caught inside the circle. Like Roy Chowdhury, Mohammad Kaif tried to play Chahal from inside the crease and was clean bowled.

Barring Shahbaz Ahmed (100 in 118 balls, four fours, four sixes), no Bengal batter reached 25 as they collapsed to 225. Bengal reduced Haryana to 14-2 in response, but by the time of writing, they had recovered to 76-2 in 16.5 overs, with Ankit Kumar (39) and Menaria (24) at the crease.

In the other quarter-finals, Rajasthan made 267-8 before having Kerala at 99-5; Karnataka bowled out Vidarbha for 173 and were 94-1 in response; and Tamil Nadu were 100-1 after restricting Mumbai to 227.
