Mumbai teenager Yashasvi Jaiswal -- having already scored two centuries in his maiden Vijay Hazare Trophy tournament -- established a new world record when he scored 203 off just 154 balls against Jharkhand.

In doing so, Yashasvi became the youngest player ever to score a double century in men's List A cricket (one day matches of at least 40 overs duration) at the age of 17 years, 292 days.

The previous record was held by South African Alan Barrow.
