In yesterday’s match against the Kolkata team, Rajasthan Royals player Yashashvi Jaiswal broke various records and kept everyone on their noses.
In the current IPL series, Yashshwi has scored 575 runs in 12 matches with a century and 4 fifties at a strike rate of 167.15. After this, there have been talks of bringing him into the Indian team.
Kolkata Knight Riders set a target of 150 runs yesterday. Jaiswal became another Jayasuriya while chasing the target. He scored 98 runs off 47 balls and set his sights on victory without any fuss to score a century. Rajasthan won by 9 wickets with 41 balls to spare. Akash Chopra, who saw his innings, said on his YouTube video channel that Yashshwi Jaiswal, who came forward from working at a panipuri shop, is the next star of the Indian team.
“The applause for him continues. He is currently wearing the purple jersey and will soon wear the Indian uniform. He is 100% sure to play for the Indian team, it is not a question of whether he will play, it is a question of when he will play,” says Akash Chopra.
“Yashaswi is a super player. He is the only one who has defeated the Kolkata team. Not saying that Sehal’s 4-wicket haul is not important. But in this innings the ball which was round in shape lost its shape due to Yashaswi Jaiswal’s stroke and the shape was distorted.
Till then the pitch looked different and when Yashashvi batted the pitch looked completely different. I would pick Yashshwi Jaiswal as the most valuable player. Sehal has taken 4 wickets, the most wickets in IPL history, but I would like to take his name out. The truth is that Yashshvi’s innings was special.
I think this innings is something to be remembered and recognized and appreciated. There are no words to describe his innings. Jaiswal has scored another fastest fifty in T20 history. It is not common to achieve such a feat at such a young age, so for me the most valuable player is Yashshwi Jaiswal. He will join the Indian team soon and it will not be a surprise if Jaiswal is included in the Indian team even for the next Afghanistan series,” says Akash Chopra.
