The first match of the 2-match test series being played between India and the West Indies is played on the Dominica ground. Yashasvi Jaiswal, playing his debut Test in the third day game, has been listed in a special club after completing 150 runs. Yashasvi is the third player to reach this milestone in India’s debut match.
Yashasvi Jaiswal has also become the youngest player from India to score 150 runs in his debut test match. Yashasvi did this feat at the age of 21 years and 196 days. Yashasvi is also the fifth youngest player to do so in Test cricket history. Former Pakistani veteran Javed Miandad holds the record for being the youngest in Test history to score 150 runs in his debut match.
Yashasvi Jaiswal has also become the first Indian player to score 150 runs outside the country in his first test match. Yashasvi’s innings ended at 171 runs in this match when Windies bowler Alzarri Joseph was caught by wicketkeeper Josua de Silva and sent into the pavilion.
