Yashasvi Jaiswal continued his impressive performance in the Test series between India and England. After scoring back-to-back double centuries, heading into the Ranchi Test, Jaiswal slammed another half-century in the match of the series.

On the second day of the Ranchi Test, Jaiswal faced some disciplined bowling from England and played a gutsy innings. Jaiswal and Shubman Gill formed a vital partnership to stabilise the Indian batting after Jaiswal lost Rohit Sharma early in the innings.

The batter today played a patient inning. Jaiswal batted with Rajat Patidar and scored his fifty in 89 balls. To finish his feat, Jaiswal took a single off of Shoaib Bashir.

In order to accomplish an exceptional mark, the left-hander also joined Virat Kohli and Rahul Dravid on the elite list. Jaiswal only became the third Indian batter to reach 600 plus runs in a Test series against England in the history of Test cricket. In 2002, Rahul Dravid became the first player from India to score 600 runs (apart from home series). In the 2016–17 home series, Kohli accomplished the same record.

Jaiswal passed the 55-run threshold in the match’s 40th over, he achieved this special milestone.

The 22-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal is in his best phase now, and it won’t be surprising if he surpasses the record held by Australian great Donald Bradman for the most runs in a Test series. In the 1930 series against England, Donald Bradman scored 974 runs in five Test matches, accomplishing the mark.

Meanwhile, throughout the season, the young player has been in outstanding form. So far, Jaiswal has scored at least one fifty-plus score in every Test match. The young player’s two back-to-back double centuries in the second and third Test matches of the series were his most notable efforts. Jaiswal struck a century in the match’s first innings in Vizag, and then in the second innings of the match in Rajkot, he completely destroyed the opponents.
