IND vs ENG 5th Test: Yashasvi Jaiswal becomes the second-quickest Indian to score 1000 Test runs

Jaiswal took 16 innings to score 1000 runs, while the record holder (Vinod Kambli) did so in 14 innings. However, in terms of matches, Jaiswal is the quickest (9) compared to Pujara and Gavaskar (11).

Yashasvi Jaiswal is on a record-breaking spree, toppling one record after another. The 22-year-old has already become the player to hit the most sixes in a series, overtaken Virat Kohli’s run tally on the list of Indian players with the most runs, and now he has become the second-quickest to score 1000 Test runs for India.

The batter broke the record, as he scored his third fifty of the series and is now less than 80 runs away from breaking Sunil Gavaskar’s record of most runs in a Test series by an Indian.

Another southpaw, Vinod Kambli, holds the record, doing so in just 14 innings. Meanwhile, legends like Cheteshwar Pujara and Gavaskar’s record have been shattered by Yashasvi Jaiswal. However, in terms of matches, he’s the fastest, taking 9 Tests to Pujara and Gavaskar’s 11. In terms of time, only Mayank Agarwal is ahead, doing so in just 164 days.
