India opening batter Yashasvi Jaiswal doesn't seem to have fazed from his back trouble late on Day Three. After bowling out England for 319, the home team came out to bat and lost the wicket of their skipper Rohit Sharma early. At 30/1, the likes of Shubman Gill and Jaiswal put together 153 before the latter retired hurt due to back pain.

The left-hander scored his another Test hundred before retiring hurt. On the other hand, Gill (91) missed out on his hundred on the ongoing Day Four of the game. Meanwhile, after the right-hander's wicket, Jaiswal came out to bat again with 104 runs to his name. He managed to get his second double hundred of this series and his career.

During his innings, the former India U19 player hit three back-to-back sixes to James Anderson, a rare occasion for the man closing on 700 Test wickets.

Yashasvi Jaiswal hits his second double-hundred in the Tests

Meanwhile, Mumbaikar's Test career is less than a year old, and has played only six Tests including the ongoing one. Apart from his hundred on debut against the West Indies in North America, he has hit two back-to-back double hundreds in this series. In the second Test early this month, the 22-year-old did the same in the first innings.

In the game, in the second innings, the Rajasthan Royals player in the IPL hit his second double hundred. During the innings, he equaled the world record of 14 sixes by former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram in an inning. Fans thought that the India international will get to break the record but India skipper Sharma decided to declare the innings and asked the Three Lions to chase down 557 runs to win the game.
