Yashasvi Jaiswal has been on a roll as he is turning heads of the cricket fraternity with his blazing innings in the Test series against England. The 22-year-old already has two double centuries to his name.

His maiden 200 (290-ball 208) came in the second Test in Vizag, while he scored his second double (236-ball 216*) century in the third Test in Rajkot.

In the third match, after Jaiswal scored his century, English opener Ben Duckett made a strange claim. He said during a press conference that England’s Bazball should take credit for Jaiswal’s aggressive century. But Duckett was criticized by former England captain Nasser Hussain who said that the Indian youngster has learned from his upbringing and hard work and not from Bazball.

The comment on Jaiswal that he has learned from us. I am going to touch on that. He has not learned from you, he has learned from his upbringing and all the hard yards he had to put in while growing up, he has learned from the IPL. If anything, I would look at him and learn from him.
Hussain told Michael Atherton on the Sky Sports podcast

He added that English players should introspect and learn from Jaiswal.
