Yashasvi Jaiswal cricketer: Twitter is in awe of the teenage Mumbai batsman who has scored his maiden List A double century.
During the league match of the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy between Mumbai and Jharkhand in Alur, 17-year old Mumbai opening batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal scored his maiden List A double century to power his team to 358/3 in 50 overs after captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and chose to bat.
Opening the batting with wicket-keeper batsman Aditya Tare (78), the duo stitched a 200-run partnership to give early signs of what was about to come.
By the time Tare got out in the 35th over, the teenage batsman had already completing his century. Not wanting to give away the opportunity to convert it into a daddy hundred, Jaiswal ended up becoming the seventh Indian batsman to cross the 200-run mark in a List A match.
Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Karn Kaushal and Sanju Samson are the other batsmen who have achieved the feat in the past.
Before getting out in the last over, Jaiswal scored 203 (154) with the help of 17 fours and 12 sixes. Playing his maiden season of the tournament, the left-hand batsman has already amassed 504 runs in five matches at an average of 100.80 and a strike rate of 100 including three centuries.
Jaiswal was also part of the winning India U-19 side which played a Tri-Nation series in England in August this year. In seven matches, Jaiswal had scored 294 runs at an average of 42 and a strike rate of 74.05 including four half-centuries.
Twitter reactions on Yashasvi Jaiswal cricketer:
Yashasvi Jaiswal was in the radar of all IPL teams at last year’s auction but a couple of them felt it was too early and he needed more power. Think the message has reached him. Hopefully he has done enough to get a deal this year. #VijayHazareTrophy #IPLwatch

Another World Record!!!
Yashasvi Jaiswal’s 504 runs are the most by ANY batsman in his first five List A innings. Previous record was held by South African legend Graeme Pollock with 493 runs. #VijayHazare #VijayHazareTrophy

I see Yashasvi Jaiswal is now shining even at the senior domestic level. Astonishing rise through sheer hard work of a youngster who has already seen a lot and made many sacrifices to pursue his dream.
