No Indian has done this, likely to successfully break 53 year old record

Yashasvi Jaiswal : 22 year old young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal is performing brilliantly in the 5-match Test series being played between India and England. Jaiswal scored a double century first in Visakhapatnam and then in Rajkot. The way Yashasvi is performing, he is close to another big record in this Test series. He has a chance to break the 53-year-old record of great Indian player Sunil Gavaskar.

Jaiswal has a chance to break Gavaskar's record

Former Indian player Sunil Gavaskar is on top in terms of scoring most runs in the Test series. Gavaskar has scored 774 runs in a test series. If Yashasvi Jaiswal scores a total of 230 runs in the remaining two Test matches, he will become the highest run-scorer for India in the Test series.
