Rajkot Test: India's record win with six on Jaiswal day

Rajkot Test

India advanced in the series by crushing England in one day in Rajkot. The match saw several records—


India's biggest win by runs. The previous highest was in 2021 against New Zealand at the Wankhede. India won the service by 372 runs.


England have lost a run chase by a greater margin only once—against Australia at the Oval in 1934. The English were bowled out for 145 runs in a target of 708 runs.


Yasswi Jaiswal equaled Wasim Akram's record for the highest number of sixes in a Test innings. The previous record for India was jointly held by Navjot Singh Sidhu (against Sri Lanka in Lucknow in 1994) and Mayank Agarwal (against Bangladesh in Indore in 2019). Both hit 8 sixes each.


Jaiswal's six in the series. Jaiswal has set the record for the highest number of sixes in a series with two Tests in hand. The previous record was also held by an Indian. Rohit Sharma hit 19 sixes in the three-match series against South Africa in 2019.


India also set a new record for team sixes. They hit 28 sixes in Rajkot. Their previous highest was 27 sixes against South Africa in Visakhapatnam in 2019.


With two matches still to go, India has already set a record for the number of sixes in the series. So far they have 48 sixes in this series. They had the previous record here too, they hit 47 sixes in 3 matches against South Africa in the 2019 series.


Jaiswal scored three double centuries in the seventh Test of his career. He was 22 years 49 days on the day the Rajkot Test began. Only Vinod Kambli (21 years 54 days) and Don Bradman (21 years 318 days) have two double centuries younger than him.


Jaiswal's strike rate in an innings of 214 runs. Indian batsmen have 3 double century innings with a higher strike rate. All 3 with a strike rate of over 100, all 3 were played by Virender Sehwag.


The run rate of Jaiswal and Sarfraz Khan. At least 150 runs have been scored, India's highest in such a pair. The previous high was 5.86. The duo added 168 runs at 5.86 per over against Afghanistan in Bengaluru in 2018.

After 445 runs in the first innings, India scored 430 runs for 4 wickets in the second innings. Only the third time in their history that the team scored 400 twice in one match. The previous two were against Pakistan in Kolkata in 2005 and Sri Lanka in Ahmedabad in 2009.


Jadeja got a century and 5 wickets in the same Test for the second time in his career.
