Yashasvi Jaiswal’s match-winning knock against Delhi scared Ashwin


In the 11th match of IPL 2023, Rajasthan Royals clinched a dominating win over Delhi Capitals by 57 runs. RR batted first and posted a mammoth total of 199/4 with Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler. He is leading the way with their exceptional batting performances. Furthermore, the opening pair put on a brilliant partnership of 98 runs in just 51 deliveries. Jaiswal was the star of the show, smashing 11 boundaries and a six on his way to a blistering knock of 60 runs off 31 balls. Ashwin, Jaiswal’s teammate, lauded him for his stunning innings and was amazed by the way he took the bowlers apart with such ease.

“Personally as a bowler watching that I felt really scared. Like if the first over goes for 20 runs, as someone who has to follow up and bowl inside the powerplay in a T20 game in India, I felt like first over was warning sign to your own bowlers,”

Ashwin said.

Red-ball cricket helps me work on my skills: Yashasvi Jaiswal

“I wasn’t thinking much. It was just that since I was seeing the ball well I decided that I have to go after him. It was a good pitch so I wanted to keep scoring runs to make sure we get to a good total,”

Jaiswal said.

Red-ball cricket has aided the 21-year-old’s batting form. He gives credit to it for helping him regulate his emotions and perform exceptionally well.

Jaiswal further said:

“Yes 100 percent (on red-ball cricket having helped his game) because I think I have played lot of red-ball cricket over the past year and have been able to control my emotions well. That surely helps me in staying calm and express myself in T20s. So playing Ranji Trophy, Irani Trophy and Duleep Trophy helps me work on my skills.”
