It was learnt from sources that the match referee had to intervene after eight minutes of play was wasted with Kaif finally deciding to change his stance and take to the ground again. It all started after Chhattisgarh out of reckoning for qualifying to the last-eight stage set a target of 200 for Karnataka led by India regular Manish Pandey. <strong><a title="Vijay Hazare Trophy: Tamil Nadu finish table top with big win over Tripura" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/vijay-hazare-trophy-tamil-nadu-finish-table-top-with-big-win-over-tripura-583163">Vijay Hazare Trophy: Tamil Nadu finish table top with big win over Tripura</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>In the second innings, a Omkar Verma delivery was nicked by Agarwal batting on one, which wicketkeeper Manoj Singh and Kaif standing at first slip went for. While Kaif claimed he took the catch cleanly, the leg umpire adjudged Agarwal not out forcing Kaif to lose his cool and ask how the leg umpire could see a right hander edging a ball to first slip. While Agarwal went on to score a match-winning 66 off 76 balls, Kaif decided to leave the field immediately after the incident. He came back later on to finish the tie. The incident might draw the ire of the match referee and Kaif could be penalised for halting the play. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu trounced Tripura by 262 runs to enter the quarterfinals as table toppers from Group A in the Vijay Hazare Trophy on Monday. Tamil Nadu posted a formidable 337 for eight in 50 overs, courtesy Ganga Sridhar Raju (77) and Dinesh Karthik (81).
