Match Details Jagadeesan’s Score 
Round 2: Andhra Pradesh VS Tamil Nadu 114* runs off 112 balls 
Round 3: Chhattisgarh VS Tamil Nadu 107 runs off 113 balls 
Round 4: Tamil Nadu VS Goa 168 runs off 140 balls

Suggestion to Establish a Relegation System in Indian Domestic Cricket: 

Arunachal Pradesh on the other hand got wrapped up for a meager 71 runs. Hence Tamil Nadu registered a 435-run victory. The plate group formation needs to be considered strongly for weaker teams such as the teams from the North East and smaller teams like Pondicherry. A relegation system to relegate the weaker teams to a lower pool needs to be formed. Else these domestic records will lose all sorts of creditability. This suggestion comes from a true cricket fan and even many analysts such as Aakash Chopra and VVS Laxman have been vocal about it.
