Perfect cricket match prediction: Indrajith marks another kind of century, a milestone

He is fast, sharp, and has eyes like an eagle.

Known for his refined batting and exemplary use of his feet, he has averaged over 4,000 first-class runs of over 50.

He is good at catching at close range.

And he reached a milestone when Indrajit Chetan stopped Sakaria from sliding off Sandeep Warrior on the third morning when Tamil Nadu and Saurashtra Ranji collided at Chepauk. It was his 100th catch-and-stamping victim in first-class cricket (he has the only standing as interim goalkeeper against Karnataka in 2014–15). And this is the 65th game.

a laudable effort

Given that spin plays a dominant role in games involving teams from the South Zone (Karnataka is an exception), and the chances of slipping are greatly reduced for specialists like 28-year-old Indrajit, this makes sense. A commendable feat.

When the bowler runs in, he’s all focused, low and balanced, and reflexes. And he hopes definitively well to get in the right position. He has a solid pair of hands so the ball comes to him instead of reaching for it.

Spinners can be difficult to slide. The distance is short and the edge you were trying to cut can quickly fly into the skid.

A natural close-up scavenger, Indrajit bravely grabbed a ridiculous point and two short legs while picking at the blindfold.

Indrajith’s first casualty was Bengal’s Abhimanyu Easwaran in the 2013–14 season. Naman Oja of Madhya Pradesh turned 50 in 2018/19.

And don’t forget the nifty pickups and bullseye.

Tamil Nadu has a rich local heritage. S Venkataraghavan, V Sivaramakrishnan, L Shivaramakrishnan, Robin Singh and S. Vasudevan all made sensational catches.

Indrajit, the milestone man, sets his sights on the ball and follows in his glorious footsteps.
