Indian young cricketer Yashasvi Jaiswal has achieved a remarkable feat surpassing Captain Rohit Sharma in setting a record for the most runs scored in just 14 innings across all formats this season.

In the third T20I match against Zimbabwe, Jaiswal scored 36 runs, breaking the record by inscribing his name on it.

With a total of 848 runs at an average of 65.23 and a strike rate of 85.82 in just 14 innings, he has outshined Afghanistan‘s Ibrahim Zadran, who held the top spot with 844 runs in 27 innings.

However, Jaiswal has overtaken him, claiming the number one spot.

Team India’s Captain Rohit Sharma now stands in the third position after scoring 833 runs in 22 innings this season.

Following closely is Sri Lankan player Kusal Mendis with 833 runs in 26 innings, and Afghanistan opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the fifth position with 773 runs in 25 innings.

What makes Jaiswal’s achievement exceptional is that he has scored such a heavy total in just 14 innings.

If other batters play more innings, surpassing the mark of 800 runs in 14 innings, he will secure the first place outright by making his own name in cricket history with the highest score recorded

It remains to be seen how many runs he will score by the end of this season, as he continues to outperform other batters who have played more matches.

This season, the top batters who have scored the most runs so far are Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ibrahim Zadran, Rohit Sharma, Kusal Mendis, and Rahmanullah Gurbaz.
