Mumbai teen Yashasvi Jaiswal becomes youngest double centurion in one-day cricket

Mumbai opener Yashasvi Jaiswal stormed into the record books to become the youngest double centurion in List A cricket after scoring 203 runs from 154 deliveries against Jharkhand in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

The 17-year-old Jaiswal, playing his fifth game in the 50-over format, became the first teenager double centurion in List A cricket as he smashed a record-breaking 12 sixes during his stunning knock.

Jaiswal was dismissed in the final over of Mumbai's innings at KSCA Cricket Ground in Alur with his heroic effort lifting the side's total to a gargantuan 358-3.

This is the third time he has reached the three-figure mark in five innings, taking his tally of runs to 504.

Jaiswal's maiden double ton in the format has thus raised his batting average to an astonishing 100.80 at a strike rate of exactly 100.

The southpaw was recently part of India's Under-19 lineup, which triumphed in the tri-series in England involving Bangladesh besides the hosts.

Jaiswal's special feat is the ninth instance of a double hundred by an Indian batsman in List A – five of them coming in international games while the last occurrence was four days ago by Sanju Samson in the Vijay Hazare Trophy clash between Goa and Kerala.

Mumbai proceeded to win the encounter by 39 runs after right-arm paceman Dhawal Kulkarni picked up five wickets to bundle out Jharkhand for 319 despite a counterattacking century from Virat Singh.
