4th Test: Jaiswal Becomes Fifth Indian Batter To Score 600 Runs In A Test Series, Breaks Sehwag's Record For Sixes

JSCA International Cricket Stadium: Yashasvi Jaiswal, the prodigious southpaw, became only the fifth Indian batter to score 600 or more runs in a Test series, as he compiled 73 on the second day of the fourth Test against England at the JSCA International Cricket Stadium here on Saturday.

Jaiswal soared past the 600-run mark in a mere seven innings across four Tests. The young sensation has so far amassed a staggering 618 runs in this series against England, boasting an impressive average of 103 and a formidable strike rate of 78.32, hitting two centuries and two half-centuries.

Jaiswal joined an illustrious league of Indian legends that includes Sunil Gavaskar (1971, 1978), Virat Kohli (2014, 2016, 2017), Dilip Sardesai (1971), and Rahul Dravid (2002), who have previously breached the 600-run mark in a Test series. With the tantalizing prospect of surpassing Gavaskar's legendary record of 774 runs against West Indies in 1971, Jaiswal stands on the brink of rewriting the history books, a mere 156 runs away from etching his name in cricketing folklore.
