Jaiswal completed his 231-ball double hundred

Jaiswal ran a single and pushed Joe Root's ball towards cover to clinch his 231-ball double hundred. The stadium's whole attendance burst into cheers. Yashasvi Jaiswal stood up and raised his bat towards the Indian team, causing every player to go to his feet. The England coaching staff was likewise unable to contain their excitement for the batting sensation. Two consecutive sixes on the third and fourth balls of the 97th over marked the achievement for the opener, who was forced to quit injured late on Saturday owing to a back spasm. Jaiswal also tied the 1996 mark set by Wasim Akram for the most sixes in a single Test innings during this procedure. 

Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 214 off just 236 balls, smashing 12 sixes and 14 fours to stay undefeated. Commentators Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri praised the southpaw's strike rate of 90.68 as he left the field to yet another standing ovation.
