Yashasvi Jaiswal, the talented young batsman from India, showcased his prowess with the bat during the first day of the second Test against England. On Friday, February 02, in Visakhapatnam, he achieved his second Test century, finishing the day unbeaten at 179* (257). Jaiswal’s impressive innings included 17 fours and five sixes, contributing significantly to India’s total of 336/6 at stumps. Despite his remarkable performance, none of the other Indian batsmen managed to withstand the challenges posed by the England bowling attack, with Shubman Gill posting the next-best score of 34.
Following Yashasvi Jaiswal’s splendid century, social media buzzed with an old prediction from India’s captain, Rohit Sharma. In this prediction, Sharma had lauded the young batsman for his double century against Jharkhand in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019.
Significantly, Jaiswal posted highlights of his remarkable 203 against Jharkhand in an Elite Group A match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019 in March 2020. In the comments section beneath the Instagram video, Rohit complimented the young player by stating, ‘Future Superstar.’
At 17 years and 192 days old, Yashasvi achieved the distinction of being the initial male teenager to achieve a double-century in List-A cricket. Following Jaiswal’s second Test century against England on the first day, Rohit’s forecast has gained widespread attention on various social media platforms. At the conclusion of the day’s play, Jaiswal shared that he approached the game session by session and conveyed his aspiration to reach a double hundred on the second day.
