Yashasvi Jaiswal started off the IPL season with a bang and as the tournament progressed, he just kept getting better. Finally, the young batter reached the much-awaited 3-digit score in IPL. During the Mumbai Indians versus Rajasthan Royals match, Yashasvi Jaiswal surprised everyone with his maiden IPL ton. Batting first, Rajasthan Royals saw the opener single-handedly score more than half of the runs on board.

Rajasthan Royals opener Yashasvi Jaiswal, stayed not out throughout the 20 overs to finish with the score of 124 runs while other batters contributed only 63 runs. However, unfortunately, Jaiswal’s runs weren’t enough to help his team with the victory. Nonetheless, the young opener received words of appreciation from the head coach Kumar Sangakkara. The Sri Lankan legend mentioned that the opener was well-focused and extremely hardworking too.

Kumar Sangakkara further mentioned that Yashasvi Jaiswal was a quick learner with a positive attitude. “He is not just extremely talented but also really hard-working. He has spent a lot of time in preparations, a lot of time in the nets working on his preparations. He has worked on his game for three to four years with us and it shows he is very focused and driven and the results are showing. The great thing about Yash is that he learns and he keeps learning very quickly. He’s got a great attitude. He’s very positive in everything that he does,” Kumar Sangakkara added.

Yashasvi Jaiswal is now the current orange cap holder with 428 runs in 9 matches at an average of 47.55. Speaking of the MI vs RR game, despite putting up a score of 212 runs, the team couldn’t stop the opposition within the target. Just like Yashasvi Jaiswal for the Royals, Tim David for Mumbai Indians delivered his best performance this season, 45 runs from 14 balls, hitting Jason Holder for 3 consecutive sixes and sealing 2 points for the team. This year, the Rajasthan Royals team looks a little over-dependent on Yashasvi Jaiswal to contribute runs as Jos Buttler is seemingly out of touch. Sanju Samson too will now have to step up and play innings as the competition enters the second half of the stage.
