Team India batter Yashasvi Jaiswal added another feather to his young international career on Day 4 of the ongoing fourth Test at JSCA Cricket Stadium Complex in Ranchi on Monday, February 26.

Jaiswal equalled batting legend Virat Kohli's record for the most runs by an Indian batter in a Test series against England. Kohli amassed 655 runs in five Tests against England in 2016. Jaiswal achieved similar tally of runs during India's 192-run chase in the fourth Test in Ranchi.

During his 73-run knock in the first innings of the Ranchi Test, Yashasvi Jaiswal surpassed former captain and current head coach Rahul Dravid's tally of 602 runs to become the second-leading run-getter for India in a Test series against England.

Most runs by Indian batter in a Test series vs England

Yashasvi Jaiswal - 655* (2024)

Virat Kohli - 655 (2016)

Rahul Dravid - 602 (2002)

Virat Kohli - 593 (2018)

Vijay Majrekar - 586 (1962)

Yashasvi Jaiswal was just one run away from surpassing former captain Virat Kohli's record for most runs in a Test series against England. The 22-year-old was batting on 37 when he attempted a big shot off Joe Root's delivery but sliced towards backward point and James Anderson dived to take the catch.

Record-Breaking Test series for Yashasvi Jaiswal

Yashasvi Jaiswal has been in red-hot form in the ongoing Test series against England as he achieved remarkable feats during the course of the series thus far.

Yashasvi Jaiswal recorded two consecutive double centuries in the series, making him the third youngest after legendary Don Bradman and former India batter Vinod Kambli to achieve this feat.

In the Rajkot Test, the 22-year-old achieved the feat of becoming the first batter to score 20 sixes in a Test series. Additionally, Jaiswal equalled former Pakistan's pacer Wasim Akram record of 12 sixes in a Test innings.

In the ongoing Ranchi Test, Yashasvi Jaiswal became the fifth Indian batter after Dilip Sardesai, Sunil Gavaskar, Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli to amass 600 runs in a Test series.

In four Tests, Yashasvi Jaiswal has amassed 655 runs, including two double centuries and a fifty, at an average of 93.57 across eight innings. Jaiswal will be eyeing to break former batting legend Sunil Gavaskar's record for the most runs by Indian batter in a Test series (774 vs West Indies in 1971).
