Twitter Reactions: Twitteraties Praising 17-Year-Old Yashasvi Jaiswal For His Incredible List A Double Century
The left-handed batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal has just made his List A debut in last September. Since then, the youngster has played five innings, including the latest one and has scored 504 runs with an average of 100.80. Though he has played lesser innings in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019/20, he is currently the third most run-scorer in this tournament.
The left-handed batsman scored 44 runs in his debutant List A game against Chhattisgarh on 28th September 2019. In his second List A game, which was against Goa, the Mumbai lad registered his maiden List A century as he scored 113 runs off 123 balls.

In-form Yashasvi Jaiswal completed List A double century in 149 balls
On Wednesday (16th October), Jaiswal was playing only his fifth List A game and it was the match against Jharkhand. After his team won the toss and elected to bat first, Jaiswal dominated with his bat.
The left-handed batsman completed the stunning List A double-century in 149 balls. Before losing his wicket in the last over of that innings, Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 203 runs off 154 balls (17 fours and 12 sixes). His incredible batting helped Mumbai to manage the first innings total of 358/3 (50 overs).
Yashasvi Jaiswal became the seventh Indian batsman to hit a List A double century. However, he is the youngest cricketer to hit the List A double century. He broke the 44-year-old record as Alan Barrow was the previous record holder. On 25th October 1975, at the age of 20 years and 275 days, Natal batsman Barrow scored 202* against South Africa African XI at Durban.
After this brilliant knock, the social media users are highly praising the Mumbai youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal. Many feel that he will become India’s next star cricketer.
Here are some twitter reactions:
Another World Record!!!
Yashasvi Jaiswal's 504 runs are the most by ANY batsman in his first five List A innings. Previous record was held by South African legend Graeme Pollock with 493 runs. #VijayHazare#VijayHazareTrophy

Yashasvi Jaiswal at 17 years 192 days became the youngest to score a double hundred in List A cricket.
He scored it for Mumbai v Jharkhand at Alur today. As a youngster he stayed in his club tent for 3 yrs. Also sold Pani-Puri during Ramlila in the Azad Maidan#VijayHazareTrophy

Sanju Samson is not alone this year to hit double ton in Vijay Hazare this year. 17-year old Yashasvi Jaiswal joins him as he scored 203 runs off 154 balls vs Jharkhand. He becomes the youngest Indian cricketer to achieve this feat.#VijayHazare@MumbaiCricAssoc@BCCIdomestic

Yashasvi Jaiswal at the age of 17 is making all the right noises!!
Double hundred in a List A game and against an attack that has played IPL matches is absolutely commendable!
Bright future in store! #VijayHazareTrophy#YashasviJaiswal#Mumbai

Generally people bless others with "Yashasvi Bhavo". However, the 17 years old #YashasviJaiswal from @MumbaiCricAssoc took this seriously and scored a brilliant 203 runs off 154 balls inclusive of 12 6s against #Jharkhand in #VijayHazareTrophy . @mohanstatsman is this a record?

India better be ready for Yashasvi Jaiswal and Riyan Parag. They have Team India quality written all over them. Phenomenal young players.

I am sure we would be hearing more of this name in the coming days – Yashasvi Jaiswal. Just hit a double century in only his 5th List A match. His scores in #VijayHazareTrophy so far – 44, 113, 22, 122, 203. Been in scintillating form

#VijayHazareTrophy#YashasviJaiswal hits Double century and the thing is that he is only 17 years old
— Amit Pratap Singh (@Amit_Prayagraj) October 16, 2019
Yashasvi Jaiswal was in the radar of all IPL teams at last year’s auction but a couple of them felt it was too early and he needed more power. Think the message has reached him. Hopefully he has done enough to get a deal this year. #VijayHazareTrophy#IPLwatch
