The opener returned to bat in the morning session after being retired on 104 late on the third day due to back pain.

Today when I came in, I wanted to make sure that I take the game forward and bat till the end,” Jaiswal said.

He scored his second double century in consecutive matches by taking a single off Root’s ball and jumped with joy.

Jaiswal hit a record-equalling 12 sixes in his innings, which included three straight sixes off James Anderson – a first for the veteran fast bowler, who has 696 wickets in 185 Tests.

Jaiswal has now come at par with former great Pakistan player Wasim Akram, who hit 12 sixes in an innings against Zimbabwe in 1996.

He made marathon stands which included an unbeaten 172-run partnership with debutant Sarfaraz Khan, who scored 68, his second half-century of the match.

The 22-year-old Jaiswal, who scored a match-winning 209 in the second Test, remains the leading batsman in the series with 545 runs.
