Yashasvi Jaiswal Century India vs England : So far, Yashasvi Jaiswal has played only 6 tests for Team India. But he has become a star player in the same number of matches. Whenever Team India needed it, this player came forward and took the responsibility. Especially in Tests, runs are coming from his bat in almost every match. Meanwhile, Jaiswal has scored another century in the second Test being played against England in Visakhapatnam. The interesting thing is that this is the first Test century of this Indian player in his home i.e. India. Along with this, he has also made some other records during this innings.
Jaiswal held one end
Today’s match was not easy for Yashasvi Jaiswal. The captain got out early leaving behind Jaiswal who had come to open the innings with Rohit Sharma. Shubman Gill, who came after him, also could not play a big innings. With the early fall of two wickets, pressure on Jaiswal was inevitable. At the other end was Shreyas Iyer, who is out of form at the moment. In such a situation, Jaiswal himself took all the responsibility. First he completed his half-century and then moved towards a century. He completed his century on 151 balls. During this period, 11 fours and three sixes came from his bat. The interesting thing is that he also completed his century by hitting a six, which to a great extent reminds of Indian opening batsman Virender Sehwag.
Yashasvi completed 1000 runs in international cricket
With this, Jaiswal has also completed his 1000 runs in international cricket. Jaiswal had earlier scored 502 runs in 17 T20 International matches. Before this match, he had scored 411 runs in 5 test matches, which has now increased to more than 511. This is his second test century. He has also managed to score two half-centuries. His Test average is around 45 and in this format he scores runs at a strike rate of 60. However, Jaiswal has not yet got a chance to play in ODIs. Which can be found soon.
India vs England: First century of an Indian in this series
The special thing about this century of Yashasvi Jaiswal is that it is the first century from Team India in this Test series being played between India and England. In the first match, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja and Yashasvi Jaiswal played innings of more than 70 runs, but no one was able to reach a century. Ollie Pope scored a century for England in the Hyderabad Test. He had scored 196 runs in the second innings of the match, but no other batsman was able to complete his hundred. The entire series is still left, many more big innings are expected from his bat in the coming times.
