Team India’s promising batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal is in the form of his life during the ongoing Test series against England. His aggressive batting has helped hosts India take a 2-1 lead in the five-match Test series.

Meanwhile, former England captain Michael Atherton feels that Jaiswal is a modern T20I player who is adapting very well to Test cricket. Atherton believes that the youngster has the ability as well as technique to do that. 

Atherton also said that England skipper Ben Stokes and his team will have to figure out a way to stop Jaiswal from further scoring double-centuries for fun if they are to come back in the series.

“Fantastic young player. Haven’t seen much of him in Test cricket. England fans didn’t see much of him before the series but now they have seen enough to know that he’s a special young talent. Very hungry for runs. He smacks the ball a long way, a powerfully built lad. He’s a modern T20 player who’s adapting to Test cricket and has the technique,” said Atherton during a recent interaction.

“When he gets in, he has all the shot. Jimmy Anderson is rarely treated with such disdain like he was this afternoon when he got taken for those three consecutive sixes. So he is a very dangerous player and England need to work out a way to get him early if they can,” he added.
