Young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal let out a roar as he held up his bat and helmet at the SNR College Cricket Ground in Coimbatore. He had just reached his double-century in the Duleep Trophy final, putting West Zone in a commanding position against South Zone on Day 3. Jaiswal, who had flopped in the first innings, put on a masterclass in the second as he raced away to his double-century. His joy was palpable as Jaiswal removed his helmet and raised both arms in the air and roared “come on” before looking up at the skies with bat and helmet still raised.
He then took a little bow, looking at his dressing room, as he finally let out a little smile.
WHAT. A. KNOCK!
