IND vs ENG: Yashasvi Jaiswal levels Virat Kohli’s record in England Test series

Yashasvi Jaiswal has matched Virat Kohli’s record for the most runs by an Indian batter in a Test series against England. He’s been doing well with the bat.ย 


Before his turn to bat in the Ranchi Test, Jaiswal had scored 618 runs. He needed 37 more to equal Kohli’s record. Kohli set this record during the 2016-17 series when England played in India.


During the Ranchi Test, Jaiswal had a nervous moment when a review was taken against him by Tom Hartley. But he stayed calm and hit a couple of boundaries off Shoaib Bashir to match Kohli’s record. Unfortunately, his innings were cut short by Joe Root’s team, with a stunning catch by James Anderson.


Next, Jaiswal aims to join Sunil Gavaskar as the only Indian player to reach 700 runs in a bilateral series. He also wants to surpass Graham Gooch and Joe Root, who hold the top spots for most runs scored in a single series between India and England. Gooch scored 752 runs in 1990, and Root got 737 in the 2021โ€“22 series in England.


How’s Jaiswal been performing in this series? He’s been fantastic! He started with a bang, scoring 80 runs aggressively in Hyderabad. Then, he smashed 209 runs in Vizag, setting the stage for India’s victory. In Rajkot, he scored another double-hundred, helping India take the lead in the series. Jaiswal became only the third Indian to score back-to-back double hundreds in Test cricket, joining Vinod Kambli and Virat Kohli.


Jaiswal has also set a new record for Indian batters after 8 Tests, with 971 runs to his credit. That’s second only to the legendary Don Bradman, who scored 1210 runs in the same period. Jaiswal’s current average in this ongoing series is an impressive 93.57.
