Speaking on BCCI TV, Yashasvi Jaiswal said that he enjoyed playing every ball in his double century innings and was happy to express himself out there. The youngster added that he doesn't know how to sum up his milestone in words.

"I enjoyed every ball. It was quite nice to go out there and express myself. I don't have a lot of words to explain to be honest but I just enjoyed and I was happy." Jaiswal said.

"I was thinking to make it big for 100% and I actually finished double hundred, then I felt like I enjoyed really well. I wanted to celebrate and enjoy the moment."

Yashasvi Jaiswal's marathon innings came to an end after he was dismissed for 209 off 290 balls by James Anderson at 383/8. He was the lone warrior for India in the first innings as other fellow batters were struggling to score 35 runs. The second best score was 34 by Shubman Gill.

Jaiswal's brilliant innings helped India post a total of 396 on the board in the first innings before Jasprit Bumrah's fiery spell of 6/41 dominated England's batting, bundling out the visitors for 253 in 55.5 overs on Day 2 of Vizag Test.
