Visakhapatnam, Feb 2: It was surely a day to remember for young batter Yashasvi Jaiswal, who toiled hard for 93 overs to score his highest Test score of 179 off 257 deliveries but a couple of late strikes by their spinners helped England fight back into the match at the end of Day 1 of the second Test at Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium here on Friday.

At the end of the day, India have put up a score of 336 for 6 in 93 overs, thanks to Jaiswal’s pure Test batting effort as he batted through the 93 overs, showing a precocious variety of Test-match gears to finish unbeaten on 179 showing good balance between defence and attack.

This is Jaiswal's second Test hundred and his second big hundred too: his previous best was a lovely, unhurried 171 on debut in Dominica against West Indies. When play was called off for the day, Jaiswal was batting on 179 with Ravichandran Ashwin keeping him company on 5.
