Alastair Cook Praises Yashasvi’s Exceptional Innings

In Vishakapattanam where India is playing their second Test against England, Yashasvi Jaiswal shines out as an exceptional batter for India. His exceptional 209 runs in the first innings surprised the English bowling attack. Not only English bowlers, but even England’s former player Alastair Cook is amazed by the beautiful Innings of this young batter.

While the other batters are struggling at the other end, Yashasvi stands like a wall at the other end. He scored his first-ever century at home and second in his test career. Last time he made his century against West Indies and scored 171 runs. By seeing his fighting batting for the team, cook appreciates his composer batting style. 

Alastair Cook said, “He’s delivered when his side need it. It was an innings of maturity and skill beyond his 22 years. Yashasvi Jaiswal was absolutely outstanding. The rest of the India team were 158-6 on a pretty good wicket. If you take him out of the side their fragile batting line-up is still there. I wonder if England could bowl a bit wider at him. It might leak some runs, but it would add more risk”.

Yashasvi’s Amazing Double Century:

Yashasvi Jaiswal creates history with his first-ever double-century in India against England in the second Test. His remarkable batting brilliance on Day 2 in Visakhapatnam establishes him as the first Indian since November 2019 to achieve a Test double-century, emulating the feat of Mayank Agarwal.

In the face of challenging conditions where the other end is falling apart, he displayed exceptional composure, reaching the 200-run milestone in just 277 balls. Joining the elite league of Sunil Gavaskar and Vinod Kambli, he becomes the third-youngest Indian to achieve this feat and the first left-handed batter since Gautam Gambhir to secure a Test double-century. His remarkable innings concludes with an impressive score of 209 runs off 290 balls.
