Yashasvi Jaiswal on the cusp of breaking Virat Kohli & Gavaskar’s record in IND vs ENG 4th Test

Jaiswal is currently placed sixth on the Indians with the most runs in a Test series list, but he needs just 38 runs to leapfrog Rahul Dravid, Virat Kohli, and Dilip Sardesai.

Yashasvi Jaiswal has been the find of the India vs England Test series. The aggressive opener is the leading run scorer of the 5-match series, with 618 runs to his name in 7 innings. The next best is Ben Duckett, with 299 runs in the same number of innings. His successful run has seen him score two doubles centuries and two fifties.

At just 22, Jaiswal is on the cusp of breaking Rahul Dravid, Dilip Sardesai, Virat Kohli, and Sunil Gavaskar’s record to become the highest run-scorer for India in a Test series.

Indian with the most runs in a Test series

Currently, the southpaw is just 1 run behind Rahul Dravid at the sixth spot. After his 73 in the first inning of the Ranchi Test, he needs just 38 runs to leapfrog Dravid, Kohli, and Sardesai to enter the Top 3.

However, to go past another Mumbai great in Gavaskar, he needs to score 153 runs in the second inning. However, with the fifth Test still left, if not in Ranchi, Yashasvi Jaiswal can easily hold the record by the end of the series in Dharamsala.
