Yashasvi Jaiswal smashed three consecutive sixes off James Anderson during the third Test in Rajkot, setting a new Indian record for most sixes in a Test innings.

In a stunning display of power hitting, Yashasvi Jaiswal unleashed a barrage of sixes against James Anderson during the third Test between India and England at the Niranjan Shah Cricket Stadium in Rajkot. Facing Anderson in the second innings, Jaiswal showcased his prowess by smashing three consecutive sixes.

On the first delivery of the over, Anderson attempted a yorker, but it turned into a low full toss on middle stump. Seizing the opportunity, Jaiswal moved across and lofted the ball over deep square leg. Jaiswal repeated the feat on the very next ball. Anderson pitched fuller outside off, but Jaiswal confidently stepped out of his crease, adjusted his stance, and effortlessly dispatched the ball over extra cover.

The onslaught continued as Anderson delivered another yorker, only to meet the same fate as Jaiswal sent it sailing over deep square leg once more.

With this remarkable feat, Jaiswal has also set a new Indian record for the most sixes in a Test innings.

On the match front, Shubman Gill and Kuldeep Yadav began the day positively, but Gill’s disappointment ensued as he was dismissed for 91 runs. Jaiswal returned to bat, resuming from his score of 106 after retiring hurt on Day 3. Jaiswal, along with Sarfaraz Khan, initially played cautiously before launching an attack.

Earlier on Day 3, Jaiswal showcased his all-round skills, taking a remarkable slip catch to dismiss Joe Root, which turned the game in India’s favor. After a patient start, he accelerated his innings with aggressive strokes, eventually reaching his third Test century in just his 12th Test innings.
