India’s young sensation and 21-year-old batter Yashasvi Jaiswal did wonders in Irani Cup 2023. Jaiswal smashed a double century in the first innings and scored a century in the second innings while playing for the Rest of India which made him the first batter to achieve this feat in the same match in the history of the Irani Trophy.

India’s destructive opener Shikhar Dhawan scored centuries in both innings in the Irani Cup match earlier, but legends like Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar have not been able to maintain such a record. It has never happened before when someone scored a double century in one inning and a century in the second. The young left-hander became the first batter to achieve such a feat in the history of 61 years.

Talking about the match, Madhya Pradesh started Day 3 in the morning at 112 for three, in which Yash Dubey converted his unbeaten 53 in a century, and Harsh Gawli's 47 in a half-century. Navdeep Saini, who took two wickets on the second day, ended the innings of Gawli (54 runs). Saini, who returned from a back injury, took three wickets for 56 runs in 20 overs.

Yashasvi Jaiswal has 3 double centuries in first-class cricket

Till lunch on the fourth day of the 5-day match, the Rest of India have scored 201 runs for 7 wickets in the second innings. His total lead has become 391 runs. Earlier, the team had scored a huge score of 484 runs in the first innings. In response, the MP team could score only 294 runs.

Jaiswal scored 213 runs in 259 balls in the first innings, which included 30 fours and 3 sixes. In the second innings, he completed the century off 103 balls, while smashing 13 fours and a six. He is still unbeaten on 121 runs. Jaiswal, who has played in the Under-19 World Cup, has an excellent first-class record.

He has scored 1488 runs in 24 innings of 14 first-class matches at an average of 71 before this match, which included 7 centuries and 2 half-centuries. His highest score is 265 runs. Now the number of his centuries has increased to 9. This includes 3 double centuries. He is also hoping for a spot in the national Indian team squad. It’d be interesting to see how long the selection committee will make him wait.
