Quilon District Cricket Association welcomes you

Scorecards and Statistics, Current Season 2015/16

Prince of Quilon The southern district of Kerala, Quilon (Kollam), is known as the Prince of Arabian Sea. Vasudevan Arundhadi Jagadeesh, one of the finest batsmen Kerala has ever produced, is the contribution of this coastal district and he rightly deserves the title ‘Prince of Quilon’.

Fondly known as ‘Jaggu’ in his friend circle, Jagadeesh is unarguably one of the best opening batsmen, Kerala has ever produced. Being the spearhead of Kerala cricket team in the domestic championships, Jagadeesh is regarded as the one of the technically sound batsmen India has.

Made his First Class debut for Kerala in November 2004, against Himachal Pradesh at Fort Maidan, Palakkad, Jaggu has accumulated over 2000 runs at an average of 37.7 from 42 matches with 6 tons. The pearl on his crown is definitely his highest first class score of 199 not out against Services, for Kerala in the Ranji Championship in 2012-13 season. He also scored 1585 runs from 42 List-A matches at an average of 44, decorated with 4 centuries with a highest score of 119 against Punjab at Port Trust Golden Jubilee Stadium, Visakhapatnam in 2012-13.

Jagadeesh is performing pretty well in his last few seasons in the domestic circuit and the call to Indian A side for the New Zealand and recently concluded West Indies series were surely the reaping of his efforts. And he didn’t miss those opportunities!

He scored a well-crafted 91 against the Kiwis at Vishakhapatnam on September, 2013 and continued his form with a blistering 86 against the Caribbeans at Shimoga on October, 2013.

Considering his current form, his appearance in the Indian side as well in the IPL is not far from reality.
