The opener's scintillating innings helped Mumbai set a mammoth target of 359 for Jharkhand in the Vijay Hazare Trophy Elite Group A match at Alur, Bengaluru.

Jaiswal, who is playing his debut Vijay Hazare season, has been in fine form in the tournament, scoring 113 and 122 against Kerala and Goa respectively.

Sanju Samson slams Double Century: 212 not out with 20 fours and 9 sixes to post Highest Score in Vijay Hazare Trophy

The left-handed opener made it the ninth instance of an Indian scoring a List A double-ton. He has amassed 585 runs already in just 5 games and surpassed Tamil Nadu's Baba Aparajith to become the leading run-scorer in the tournament.

Jaiswal's feat comes less than a week after Kerala batsman Sanju Samson scored 212 not out - his first List A century against Goa, making it the highest individual score in the competition. The talented right-handed batsman's 212* was the highest individual score in a domestic game in India. It was the fourth-highest List A score for India after Rohit Sharma's 264, Shikhar Dhawan's 248, Virender Sehwag's 219.
