Jaiswal, Jadeja On Verge of Huge Milestone Ahead of IND vs ENG 5th Test


IND vs ENG 5th Test: India are set to lock horns against England in the 5th and last Test of the England Tour Of India 2024 and Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ravindra Jadeja are on the doorstep of huge milestones individually.

England are on a tour of India and they were scheduled to play five test matches. Four of the five matches have been played and as expected, India have thrived in the show. Despite losing the first test of the series, India have won the series by winning consecutive three tests.

Yashasvi Jaiswal has come up as the best batsman among all in the series. He is also the highest run scorer (655) of the series with a healthy lead to Shubman Gill who is second with 342 runs in the tournament.

Jaiswal has played 8 Test Matches for India and in 15 innings, he has scored 971 runs. He is just 29 runs away from 1000 runs. If he adds up 29 runs in either inning of the match, he will become the second-fastest Indian player to score one thousand runs in the Test after Vinod Kambli who did the job in 14 innings.

Jaiswal has been exceptional top of the order. He has amassed three big hundreds and three excellent fifties in his very young career and surely there are many to come.

Ravindra Jadeja, on the other hand, has been one among the most valuable players in the squad. His all-rounder ability has proven to be the savior for the side in this series. He has played 3 matches in this series and batted on 5 innings where he collected 217 runs with an average of over 43.

More than his batting, he has been more impressive with his bowling. He has taken 17 wickets in this series in 3 matches with an average of 25. He has bowled 127 overs and shares the second spot in the wicket-takers tally with Bumrah and Ravi Ashwin.

Jadeja has taken 292 wickets in a total of 71 matches in Test format. He is just 8 wickets short of becoming the seventh Indian and the third spinner to pick up 300 wickets in Test cricket.
