IND vs ENG: Yashasvi Jaiswal breaks Sunil Gavaskar's 45-year-old record, becomes second Indian batter to hit 700+runs in a series

In the fifth game of the current Test series between India and England, opener Yashasvi Jaiswal of India continued his incredible success, scoring his fourth half-century of his career at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala on Thursday. In the process of getting the knock, Jaiswal not only hit the 1000-run mark in the format but also tied the coveted record held by the legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar.

After Vinod Kambli (14), Jaiswal became the second-quickest Indian (16 innings) to reach 1000 runs in Test cricket with a boundary against Shoaib Bashir in the 15th over of India’s innings. On the other hand, Jaiswal, who is making his ninth appearance for India, has eclipsed both Gavaskar and Cheteshwar Pujara, who have each played 11 Test matches, to become the quickest player in the country to achieve this milestone.

However, overall, Sir Don Bradman (7) continues to top the record, with Everton Weekes, Herbert Sutcliffe, and George Headley tied for second place.

The 22-year left-hander batter is now the fourth-youngest Indian hitter to score 1000 Test runs, after Sachin Tendulkar (19 years, 217 days), Kapil Dev (21 years, 27 days), and Ravi Shastri (21 years, 197 days).

A few overs later, Jaiswal became the first and only other Indian since Gavaskar to achieve 700 runs in a single bilateral Test series after hitting another pair of consecutive boundaries against Bashir. The former captain of India has accomplished this feat twice in his career, once against the West Indies on a tour during his debut series in 1971 (scoring 774 runs) and again at home in 1978/79 (scoring 732 runs).

Meanwhile, India’s first-innings deficit on Day 1 at Dharamsala was reduced to just 83 runs thanks to Jaiswal’s fifty and captain Rohit Sharma’s undefeated 52. The hosts stood at 135 for 1 at stumps.

The former captain of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), MS Dhoni, hasn’t yet announced his retirement plan or whether he plans to continue his career in the IPL, but a CSK official has revealed a message Dhoni gave to the management.

CSK was eliminated from IPL 2024 after a defeat by Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in their final league match on Saturday. Both teams had 14 points each, but due to a higher net-run rate, RCB led by Faf du Plessis qualified for the playoffs. CSK fans were sad not only about the defeat of their team but also about the fact that they might see MS Dhoni for the last time in the IPL. However, a CSK official has revealed that he hasn’t commented on his potential retirement.

The unnamed CSK official revealed that Dhoni has requested that the team management hold off on any decisions regarding his retirement for a few months. He said that Dhoni himself hasn’t reached a conclusion and might be considering another season.

The official also mentioned that Dhoni felt comfortable with his running between the wickets during the IPL, a key concern for some fans regarding his age. Additionally, the introduction of the impact player rule in IPL 2024 might influence Dhoni’s decision. This rule allows teams to bring in a substitute player during the second strategic break, potentially offering Dhoni a more specific role within the team that is less physically demanding.

With Dhoni maintaining his silence and the possibility of the ‘Impact Player’ rule working in his favour, CSK fans might not have seen the last of their beloved captain just yet. The official said that the management would wait for Dhoni’s message on the topic and added that MS Dhoni has always had the best interests of the team in mind.
