Yashasvi Jaiswal once again wreaked havoc with his bat in the Test series against England, because he smashed his third Test century on Saturday (February 17) at the Niranjan Shah Stadium in Rajkot. But right after his century, he was forced to leave the field retired hurt.

After reaching his ton off 122 balls, Jaiswal scored 104 runs from 133 balls with the help of nine fours and five sixes. He leaped into the air to celebrate his century, but afterward, back pain made him leave the field.

Jaiswal opened the innings with captain Rohit Sharma, who made 19 runs from 28 balls. It was the 22-year-old’s third Test century. In the second Test, the youngster slammed his maiden double hundred (a 290-ball 209). His maiden Test century came in his debut match against West Indies in July last year.

Jaiswal has so far scored 637 runs from six matches at an average of 57.9. He has so far one double century, two centuries, and two half-centuries to his name.
