Yashasvi Jaiswal made history by becoming the first Indian to achieve two double hundreds against England in Test cricket, smashing his second successive double century on Day 4 of the 3rd Test in Rajkot.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, aged 22, continues to rewrite records effortlessly. During India’s third Test against England in Rajkot, Jaiswal became the third-youngest batsman to notch two Test double centuries. This remarkable feat places him in a prestigious company, trailing only behind India’s Vinod Kambli and Australian icon Don Bradman.

Jaiswal’s latest double hundred, achieved on Day 4 of the test series, showcased his exceptional talent as he dominated England’s bowling attack. Despite facing back spasms earlier, he unleashed a barrage of sixes, reaching his milestone in just 231 deliveries during the post-lunch session.

His stellar performance was complemented by Sarfaraz Khan’s notable fifty-plus score in his debut Test match.

In the process, Jaiswal made history, becoming the first Indian to score two double-hundreds against England in Test cricket. Additionally, he smashed a 30-year-old record by Navjot Singh Sidhu for the most sixes in a Test innings, reaching a total of 10 sixes during the second session on Day 4.
