IND vs ENG 2nd Test: Yashasvi Jaiswal etched his name in the annals of Indian cricket history as he became the third-youngest Indian after Sunil Gavaskar and Vinod Kambli to score a double-hundred in Tests on Day 2 of the second Test against England at the ACA-VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnam.

Jaiswal, aged 22 years and 77 days, completed his feat in 277 balls, guiding India to a 350-plus total in the match’s first innings.

The opener became the first Indian since Mayank Agarwal (November 2019) to breach the double-ton mark in the game’s most extended format.

Jaiswal’s innings became a beacon of hope for the Indian team, wildly as wickets tumbled at regular intervals at the opposite end.

Jaiswal reached the coveted double-ton milestone and became the first Indian left-handed batsman since Gautam Gambhir in 2008 to achieve this feat in Test cricket.

The former India opener scored 206 against Australia, and Jaiswal followed in his footsteps with equally remarkable innings.

Clocking in at 277 balls to reach the 200-run mark, Jaiswal’s innings demonstrated his attacking flair and his ability to temper his aggression with patience when the situation demanded.

The youngest double centurion in the history of Test cricket is Javed Miandad, who achieved his feat at 19 years and 140 days.
