The jubilant celebration from Jaiswal was met with equal delight from the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma, whose joy was evident on camera. Jaiswal’s achievement, achieved in just 122 balls, adorned with 9 boundaries and 5 sixes, was a moment of pride for both players.

Amidst the backdrop of Jaiswal’s heroics, England faced a daunting challenge against the relentless bowling attack led by Mohammed Siraj, Ravindra Jadeja, and Kuldeep Yadav. With Jasprit Bumrah dismissing Joe Root once again and Kuldeep claiming crucial wickets, including the dangerous Ben Duckett, England crumbled to 319, granting India a commanding 226-run lead.

Transitioning from a cautious start, Jaiswal’s innings gained momentum, punctuated by a boundary-less first 48 balls, before exploding with a flurry of boundaries and a well-earned half-century, capped off with a towering six.
