Wasim Akram Responds, “My Record Wasn’t Broken,” to Yashasvi Jaiswal’s Double Ton in the Rajkot Test vs. ENG

<p>Yashasvi Jaiswal, a young hitter, is making headlines right now for his incredible batting performance against England in the current Test series. The 22-year-old, who has shut out England’s “Bazball” with consecutive double-hundreds in the previous two games, has been a major contributor to India’s winning streak. More significantly, the child’s vicious hits have been changing the record books.</p>

<p>Jaiswal scored 214 runs to help the hosts win the third Test at Rajkot, handing England their worst loss in the series since 1934. In India’s second essay, the opening batsman equaled the world record set by former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram with 12 sixes.</p>
<p>In a 1996 Test match at Sheikhupura Stadium against Zimbabwe, Akram accomplished this feat. The former captain led his side to 553 runs in the first innings with an undefeated 257 off 363 balls. However, the visitors were able to salvage a draw in the match.</p>
<p>When he came out to bat, Pakistan was down by six wickets, so Akram recalled the situation and stated it wasn’t easy for him to get so many runs.</p>
<p>My record for the most sixes in an innings wasn’t broken; instead, Yashasvi Jaiswal tied it. Although Zimbabwe is often mentioned, it wasn’t that simple. When I went to bat, I think we were around 170/6, Akram said to A Sports.</p>
<p>In relation to records, Jaiswal is the only Indian batsman to hit more than 150 runs in each of his first three Test tons. In the longest format, he is also the third-youngest player to score two double tons.</p>
<p>In addition, Jaiswal broke the previous Indian record of eight sixes, which was shared by Mayank Agarwal and Navjot Singh Sidhu, to create a new benchmark. He has now hammered 22 maximums, which is the most any batsman has ever done in a Test series. In Rajkot, the Indian batsmen also broke the previous record for the most sixes by any team in a Test match with an overall total of 28.</p>
