Fans React To Yashasvi Jaiswal Ton Vs England: The 2nd Test in the ongoing five-match Test series between India and England is underway and it presents the opportunity for several Indian batters to cement their place in the national side. One player who grabbed the chances given to him with both hands is opener Yashasvi Jaiswal, who scored a magnificent century on Day 1 of the Test.
The likes of Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, and Shreyas Iyer would’ve liked to score big in this match. While Yashasvi did score an 80 in the 1st Test, Gill and Iyer needed to notch up a big score following their continued disappointing performances in the format. While those two failed to capitalize on the decent start they received, the Rajasthan Royals batter made his second century today.
And what a knock it has been. A solid mixture of defensive play and coming out of his shell to attack every once in a while. If one word can be used to describe Jaiswal’s innings, it is ‘Intent’. The fact that he stepped out of the crease to hit a six down the ground when he was on 94 to reach his 100 shows Yashasvi’s fearless intent today.
