Yashasvi Jaiswal’s Double Ton Propels India to 336/6 on Day 1 of Second Test



Yashasvi Jaiswal displayed remarkable skills and composure, scoring 179 runs off 257 balls on the first day of the 2nd Test against England in Visakhapatnam. He stood out as the only Indian top 6 batter who capitalized on a good start and played a magnificent innings. At the end of the day, India stood at 336 for 6, with England consistently taking wickets on a spin-friendly pitch. However, Yashasvi Jaiswal was the exception, showing great patience and control. Despite the disappointments of other Indian batters, debutant Rajat Patdiar displayed remarkable control and formed a formidable partnership with Yashasvi before being dismissed. Axar Patel provided excellent support, but unfortunately, India lost some wickets carelessly towards the end of the day’s play. England, led by James Anderson and supported by spinners, maintained a good over-rate in the hot and humid conditions. This was a crucial opportunity for Indian batters to prove themselves, and Yashasvi Jaiswal’s performance provided India with the much-needed advantage in the Test match.
