Jaiswal grew to become the third Indian opener after Shikhar Dhawan (vs Australia in 2013) and Prithvi Shaw (vs West Indies 2018) to attain 100 on Check debut.
Whereas Dhawan may by no means replicate that afternoon in Mohali in his subsequent 33 video games, Shaw, who was the most important factor popping out of Mumbai batting steady, misplaced his means a bit after a blazing begin to his worldwide profession.
