In the field of cricket, Yashasvi Jaiswal is writing a story that challenges norms and thrills fans. His remarkable performance on the fourth day of the third Test against England at the Niranjan Shah Stadium is rewriting records. Jaiswal has become the first Indian batsman to convert his first three centuries into 150 on three occasions, achieving the feat twice in the ongoing 5-match series.

The 22-year-old is dominating the England bowlers and showing no mercy against the experienced James Anderson, who is twice his age. Yashasvi Jaiswal’s abilities extend beyond mere statistics. Anderson made his ODI debut for England in 2002, when Jaiswal turned one. Cricket, as a game, defies ages and generations, and this is clearly illustrated today.

After reaching his third 150 and second century against England, Jaiswal hit three consecutive sixes off the experienced Englishman, who is on the verge of taking his 700th Test wicket. Today the spotlight is on the baby-faced killer as he closes in on converting his innings to his second double-century in the series.

His conversion rate is phenomenal, taking his average to over 57. Yashasvi Jaiswal’s emergence as a cricket gem is, in part, due to his stellar IPL 2023 performances for Rajasthan Royals. His innings of 625 runs in 14 matches at a strike rate of 163.61, which included one century and five half-centuries, paved the way for his inclusion in the Indian team under Rahul Dravid.

This first home Test series has indeed been a dream for Jaiswal, proving that fortune indeed favours the brave. The three sixes he hit in James Anderson’s over not only showcased Jaiswal’s audacity but also put him on an elite list. He joined the ranks of former Australian batsman George Bailey, who achieved a similar feat by scoring 28 runs with 2 fours, 3 sixes and a double against Anderson during the 2013 Ashes.

As Jaiswal registered his second double century in Test cricket, cricket lovers were left in awe, having witnessed a performance that may not be repeated any time soon. The young genius isn’t just rewriting the record; He is rewriting cricket history with every strike of his bat.
