Maharashtra batsman Kedar Jadhav on Saturday became the fourth batsman in the history of the Ranji Trophy to score more than 1,200 runs in a season. Jadhav joined the exclusive group of VVS Laxman, Vijay Bhardwaj and Wasim Jaffer to achieve the feat.


Jadhav also brought up his sixth century during the fourth day’s play.


Jadhav achieved the feat during the second innings in the final of the 2013-14 season, being played against Karnataka at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.


Jadhav has so far slammed six centuries and two half-centuries this season, and is averaging more than 92. He has been Maharashtra’s pillar in the batting department this season.


He became the first batsman to reach the landmark of 1,000 runs in a Ranji Trophy season in the quarter-final clash against Mumbai this season. It was his 14th outing in nine matches so far.
