Yashasvi Jaiswal’s batting gets lavish praise after India wins 1st Test


Young India batter, Yashasvi Jaiswal has earned huge praise from India’s bowling coach, Paras Mhambhrey.

Meanwhile, batting in the 1st Test at Dominica, Jaiswal fell 17 runs short of achieving the highest-ever Test score by an Indian on Test debut as he was dismissed on 171.

While he is surely an aggressive player when it comes to T20Is, the 21-year-old showed pure adaptability on a slow Dominican wicket as well.

Moreover, Mhambrey has also stressed the importance of adapting quickly to conditions and situations.

Furthermore, he has also applauded Jaiswal’s performance and proved the team’s expectations right.

Additionally, he has also stated that Jaiswal’s performances at the domestic and in the IPL have boosted his confidence immensely.

Says Mhambrey,

I think the way he batted, it’s been fabulous. For a debutant to come in not on an easy wicket- it was obviously a slow wicket that got slower as the game progressed. Strokemaking wasn’t easy. If you look at the way he’s batted earlier, he’s the kind of a guy who likes to take on the game, likes to play his shots, but the way he applied himself on that wicket was very good to see.

Meanwhile, India remained dominant in this Test match right from Day 1 to 3.

Thus, this victory has allowed India to bounce back after their horrific loss to Australia in the WTC final.

India makes merry at Dominica as they dismiss West Indies for low scores; Jaiswal shines on debut

Talking about the wicket at Dominica, it was an excellent one for the visitors as they knew that the spinners will come into effect.

Both Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja bowled well in tandem and skittled the Windies for 150 and 130 runs respectively.

While Ashwin broke the records of Harbhajan Singh and Anil Kumble, Jadeja contributed with three and two wickets.

This win now highlights the strength of India in adapting comfortably to international conditions and situations.

With all the players contributing well in the first Test, this series is surely going to be a blockbuster between these two sides.
