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.

Fast bowler Akash Deep made a dream debut to his Test career on Friday as he picked up three crucial wickets in his first six overs, leaving England reeling after they had won the toss and elected to bat first in the fourth Test match against India at the JSCA stadium in Ranchi. Akash Deep was almost unplayable in the early part of the first session.

Captain Rohit Sharma handed Akash Deep the new ball from the other hand, and the right arm seamer impressed critics with his bowling. Akash Deep’s pace remained in the 130s and Jurel had to make quite a brilliant take off the third ball, which flew down the leg side of Duckett. He conceded just two runs off his first over.

He picked up the wicket of Zak Crawley in his second over, but the delivery was declared a no-ball by the umpire. He then picked up the wickets of Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope afterwards and smashed Crawley’s off stump. This time it was a legitimate delivery and Crawley was sent back to the pavilion.

After receiving his Test Debut cap from head coach Rahul Dravid, Akash Deep touched his mother’s feet and took her blessing. Deep moved on from his mistake and took three wickets in the first session. Ben Ducket (11) was caught by Dhruv Jurel, while Ollie Pope (O) was given LBW. Zak, who earlier survived due to Akash Deep’s no ball, was bowled after scoring 42.

Akash Deep hails from Sasaram, Bihar and shifted to Durgapur on the pretext of a job but went to a cricket academy and there has been no looking back for the youngster since then. Akash Deep is the third Indian player after Sarfaraaz Khan and Dhruv Jurel to make his debut in the ongoing five-match Test series.
