Mumbai youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal on Wednesday registered his way into the record books by becoming the youngest player to score a List-A double century.

The 17-year-old who is playing his debut Vijay Hazare season smashed 203 off 154 balls, which included 12 sixes and 17 fours against Jharkhand. He scored his double ton against the bowling attack that included out-of-favour India pacer Varun Aaron and Shahbaz Nadeem.

The opener's aggressive innings helped Mumbai set a mammoth target of 359 for Jharkhand in the Vijay Hazare Trophy Elite Group A match. Jaiswal has been in top form in the tournament, scoring 113 and 122 against Kerala and Goa respectively.

This is the ninth instance of an Indian player scoring a List A double-ton. Earlier this week, Sanju Samson had scored 212 not out — his first List A century — for Kerala against Goa, making it the highest individual score in the competition.

Here's how the sports community reacted:

Meanwhile, owing to Jaiswal's double ton, Mumbai defeated Jharkhand by 39 runs.
