Young Mumbai batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal, who was trapped in the first innings of the Duleep Trophy semi-final against Central Zone and the first innings of the final match against South Zone, hit a double century on the third day of this match. With this double century, he has attracted attention for the selectors of the Indian team to be included in Team India.
Significantly, in the first innings of the final match of the Duleep Trophy, Yashasvi Jaiswal was run for 1 run. In the second innings, he hit a double century and the team took a 319-run lead over the opposition team. At the end of the third day’s play, West Zone scored 376 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in their second innings. Yashasvi Jaiswal 209 and Sarfaraz Khan 30 not out.
Batting with best strike rate
Yashasvi had a great performance for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2022. But after that, Yashasvi, who was cooler with the bat in the few innings before today’s innings, batted in ODI style. He played an unbeaten innings of 206 runs in 244 balls in the ongoing match. In this double century score, 24 fours and 3 sixes are also included in his bat.
Example of fifth century in the sixth match
It is worth noting that Yashasvi Jaiswal had played an innings of 103 runs in the match played against Uttarakhand under the Ranji Trophy in the month of June last in domestic cricket. In his next match, he scored a century in both the innings of the match against Madhya Pradesh. He scored 100 runs in the first innings and 181 runs in the second innings.
Starting with Century in Duleep Trophy-2022
He scored 228 runs in a match played against North-East Zone in the same year under Duleep Trophy. In the last 6 matches overall, his fifth century came from the bat. This excellent performance forced the selectors of Team India to look on their side.
Yashasvi Jaiswal, who was in excellent form, still did not find a place in the India-A team against New Zealand-A. Now it remains to be seen whether he is included in the ODI team against the South African team coming to play the series on the tour of India.
