KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal looks to equal Don Bradman's elite record in Tests.
  • Bradman scored three double centuries in the 1930 Ashes series against England.
  • Jaiswal has scored 209 in the 2nd Test and 214* in the 3rd Test against England.
Star Indian opening batter Yashasvi Jaiswal is on fire against England in the ongoing five-match Test series. In the four Tests played so far, with the help of two double centuries, the 22-year-old left-handed batter has scored 655 runs. He will look to maintain his ace form in the fifth and final Test as well, which starts on Thursday (March 7) in Dharamsala. During the fifth Test against the English team, the young opener will look to equal the unique record of Sir Donald Bradman.
If Jaiswal manages to score a double century in the fifth Test against England, then he will become the first Indian batter in history and second overall after Bradman to score three double centuries in a Test series. During the 1930 Ashes series played in England, Bradman scored 254 runs in the second Test played at the Lord’s, 334 runs in the third Test played at Headingley in Leeds, and 232 runs in the fifth Test played at the Oval.
In that series, Bradman amassed a total of 974 runs in five matches, a world record for most runs scored in a Test series by any batter. Jaiswal will need to score at least 320 runs in the Dharamsala Test to go past that mark.
Jaiswal, who is playing in his first Test series at home and third overall in his career, scored 209 runs in the first innings of the second Test against England at the Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam on February 3 and then remained unbeaten on 214 runs from 236 balls in the second innings of the third Test played at the Niranjan Shah Stadium in Rajkot on February 18.
By scoring a double century in the third Test, the former India U-19 World Cup star became only the third cricketer after Vinod Kambli and Virat Kohli to score back-to-back double centuries for India. Kambli achieved the feat in 1993 and Kohli in 2017 during the India-Sri Lanka series.
