The former Indian head coach praised the two uncapped Indian players for their performance in IPL. Rinku Singh is in the tenth place and Yashasvi Jaiswal is in the third position in the leading run-scorer list. Ravi Shastri said that he could see the fire and hunger in the eyes of both. The left-hander has been scoring runs at a high strike rate and Rinku is winning games for his team. However, both are yet to make a debut in the Indian team.
Ravi Shastri on Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rinku Singh said that
“One is Yashasvi Jaiswal, simply because of the way he’s played this season and for me it is a marked improvement from what I saw from him last year, which is a very, very positive sign. It shows that there’s a young guy prepared to work on his game, sort out things, get a more all-round game into play and he’s done that this season. Just the power with which he’s re-taking shots. Just the pockets he’s hitting around the ground as opposed to last year is very good.” Shastri said on Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Ravi Shastri further added that
“The other bloke is Rinku Singh, which is a great story. The more I see of him, that guy has got a fabulous temperament. He’s tough as nails. Both these guys have come through very hard backgrounds. They’ve worked very hard initially in their lives and nothing’s come easy for them. So you can see that hunger, that passion, that drive that is so needed to make it to the top,” Shastri said in the latest episode of The ICC Review.
