It was one that featured a number of milestones for multiple players but perhaps the moment that Indian fans would remember for a long time is when Yashasvi Jaiswal reached his double century and his partner and domestic teammate Sarfaraz Khan celebrated just as much as he did on Day 4. (PTI) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

Jaiswal equalled the record for most sixes in a Test innings, which was previously held solely by Pakistan great Wasim Akram, hitting 12 sixes along with 14 fours. Three of those sixes came off consecutive balls agaisnt James Anderson, making him the first to do so in a Test innings against the England great since Australia's George Bailey in 2013. Sarfaraz finished unbeaten on 68 off 72, hitting six fours and three sixes. India then dismissed England for 122 and thus won the third Test by 434 runs. (HT_PRINT) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
