Well, the season is becoming better and better for Yashasvi Jaiswal. The 17-year-old youngster from Mumbai knocking runs on a regular basis to get noticed by the Indian selectors. In the latest, the flamboyant batsman knocked a double century against Jharkhand during a league match in Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019.

Jaiswal also became the third batsman after K.V. Kaushal and Sanju Samson to smash a double in the domestic one-day cricket tournament. In this season, he is the second batsman to smash a double century. Earlier, it was Sanju Samson, who knocked it for Kerala against Goa.
Coming from a humble background, he paddled through struggles to achieve his dreams. The Mumbai was in the news for making his entry into the Indian U-19 team for the Sri Lankan tour in August. Coming through the junior cricket ranks, Jaiswal has become a force to reckon in a very short time.
His stunning double century consists of 17 boundaries and as many as 12 sixes. Alongside Jaiswal, Aditya Tare started innings well by stitching 200 runs for the first wicket. However, he failed to continue his onslaught, as he was dismissed by Anukul Roy on 78.
Following him, Siddhesh Lad got a decent start of 32 runs but failed to convert that into a big knock. Just after reaching his double century, Jaiswal was dismissed by Vivekanand in the slog overs. However, they came the magical knock from Shreyas Iyer.
The skipper smashed 31 runs off just 14 balls that include one boundary and three massive sixes. For Jharkhand, Vivekanand picked a couple of wickets while Anukul Roy pocketed one wicket. The bowling department consists of the likes of Varun Aaron and Shabaz Nadeem.

Another World Record!!!
Yashasvi Jaiswal's 504 runs are the most by ANY batsman in his first five List A innings. Previous record was held by South African legend Graeme Pollock with 493 runs. #VijayHazare #VijayHazareTrophy

Generally people bless others with "Yashasvi Bhavo". However, the 17 years old #YashasviJaiswal from @MumbaiCricAssoc took this seriously and scored a brilliant 203 runs off 154 balls inclusive of 12 6s against #Jharkhand in #VijayHazareTrophy . @mohanstatsman is this a record?
