Yashasvi Jaiswal Joins Sunil Gavaskar in an Elite Club After Day 1 of the Fifth Test Match

In a thrilling encounter during the fifth Test match between India and England, young batting sensation Yashasvi Jaiswal etched his name in cricketing history. His remarkable performance on Day 1 catapulted him into an exclusive club, joining the legendary Sunil Gavaskar.

The Record-Breaking Innings

As the sun bathed the picturesque Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala, Yashasvi Jaiswal showcased his prowess with the bat. Opening the innings alongside India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, Jaiswal played with confidence and flair. Their partnership of 104 runs laid a solid foundation for the Indian team.

Breaking Kohli’s Record

Jaiswal’s innings of 57 runs not only helped India consolidate their position but also shattered records. He surpassed former India captain Virat Kohli’s record for the most runs in a Test series against England. Kohli had scored 655 runs during the 2016/17 home series. Jaiswal’s tally now stands at an impressive 700 runs and counting.

Joining the Elite Club

But that’s not all. Yashasvi Jaiswal became only the second Indian after Sunil Gavaskar to achieve this remarkable feat. Gavaskar, a cricketing legend, had scored more than 700 runs in a single Test series twice during his illustrious career—once in 1971/72 against the West Indies (774 runs) and again in 1978-79 (732 runs).

With one more possible innings left in the series, the swashbuckling opener has the chance to etch his name in the annals of cricketing history.


The clash between bat and ball, the pursuit of records, and the legacy of greats—cricket thrives on such moments. Yashasvi Jaiswal’s journey from debutant to record-breaker exemplifies the spirit of the game. As the series unfolds, fans eagerly await more fireworks from this young talent
