‘India Has a New Virender Sehwag in Yashasvi Jaiswal’: Michael Vaughan

Written by Sumit Seth

Indian opener Yashasvi Jaiswal put on a show for all with his blistering double-hundred against England in the third Test today.

Jaiswal, who had to retire hurt on 104 on day three due to back cramps, smashed an unbeaten with a career-best score of 214 off 236 balls. He hit 14 fours and 12 sixes en route to his trail-blazing historic double-century and smashed a plethora of records along the way.

His innings caught the eyes of the cricketing world all over, including former England skipper Michael Vaughan, who stated that Jaiswal’s exploits and batting style reminded him of one Virender Sehwag.

Vaughan took to social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, to share his thoughts on the young opener.

“India has a new @virendersehwag .. @ybj_19 is a player who will destroy many attacks in all formats exactly like Viru used to do” he wrote on X.

Enroute to his historic 200, Jaiswal etched his name into history as well, becoming the first ever batter in Test cricket to score 20 sixes across a single Test series, and the third Indian batter to score double-centuries in consecutive Test matches.
