India amassed 396 runs in the first innings thanks to 209 runs from Jaiswal.
On Saturday, February 3, Yashasvi Jaiswal achieved the distinction of being the third-youngest Indian cricket player to score a double century in a match. The 22-year-old began the second Test against England in Visakhapatnam tentatively, but after settling in, he wrecked havoc and hit 209 runs, which put a lot of pressure on the visiting team. The batsman from Bhadohi was resolute enough to assist the hosts get 396 runs in the first innings despite the fact that the English bowlers were on point and prevented the Indian hitters from settling down.
Jaiswal’s hometown celebrated his double century with dhols, firecrackers, and sweets, which delighted the locals. A celebration broke out in the community as they became very proud and glad of Jaiswal’s ascent to prominence and amazing achievement in international cricket.
The valor of Jasprit Bumrah stopped England’s progress.
England felt confident in their batting ability following a convincing victory over India in the first Test in Hyderabad. They put a lot of effort into their preparation for the Indian spinners, but star bowler Jasprit Bumrah was the one who lived up to the expectations. The 30-year-old took six wickets in the second innings because to his amazing length and line. He took the wickets of Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Tom Hartley, James Anderson, and Ollie Pope with a perfect yorker.
He was well-supported in the middle by Kuldeep Yadav. Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja doesn’t get many opportunities while he’s around, but when Jadeja was ruled out of the second Test, Kuldeep was called upon to step up and he did not disappoint, taking three wickets. While Mukesh Kumar and Ravichandran Ashwin proved to be costly, Axar Patel claimed the other wicket.
India jumped ahead by 143 runs before England was bowled out for 253 runs. The hosts appeared to be in complete control of the game on Day 2, as captain Rohit Sharma and Jaiswal added another 28 runs. From here on out, they must forge a solid alliance in order to exert pressure on the Ben Stokes-led team and win.
