Indian Team Broke Sri Lanka’s 22-Year-Old Record In The 2nd Test Against West-Indies

In a dazzling display of aggressive batting, the Indian cricket team scripted history by breaking Sri Lanka’s 22-year-old record for the fastest 100 runs in a Test innings. The momentous achievement came during the ongoing second Test against West Indies at Queen’s Park in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

Having dismissed West Indies for 255 runs, taking a commanding lead of 183 runs, India’s openers, Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal, took to the crease with an ultra-aggressive mindset. They unleashed an onslaught on the West Indies bowlers, smashing boundaries and sending the ball soaring all over the park. They brought up their half-century partnership in a mere 5.3 overs, making it the fastest for India in Test cricket.

In his signature style, Rohit Sharma blazed to his fastest half-century in Tests, reaching the milestone in just 35 balls. His partner, the young Yashasvi Jaiswal, was no less impressive, contributing 38 runs from 30 balls to the opening partnership of 98 runs. The batsmen showcased remarkable form and fearlessness as they took control of the game.

India’s aggression and dominance were further exemplified when they notched up 100 runs in just 12.2 overs, setting a new record for the fastest a team has achieved this feat in terms of balls faced in Test cricket. This remarkable feat surpassed Sri Lanka’s record of achieving 100 runs in 13.2 overs against Bangladesh in 2001.

Despite rain interruptions, the Indian team built a substantial lead of over 300 runs against the West Indies. However, the weather has been frustrating, threatening to impede the match’s outcome. Nevertheless, buoyed by their emphatic victory in the first game, led by Rohit Sharma, the Indian side aims to secure another win in the ongoing match and whitewash the opposition.
