Yashasvi Jaiswal improved his game for the IPL 2023 by facing plastic ball “rockets” on concrete trucks. His brilliant strokeplay was seen during the MI VS RR Match on Sunday night. Yashasvi Jaiswal, who is 21, matures in a spectacular way. Jaiswal struggled a little bit as a young cricketer on the city’s maidans.
He was made to live in a tent after his parents left the city and even sell “panipuri” in the evenings to make ends meet. But when Jwala Singh, his mentor and coach took him to his house and helped him develop his talent, everything changed.
What a journey, Yashasvi Jaiswal❤️

He was able to join the Mumbai under-16 team thanks to his consistent performance in interschool cricket. And an exposure trip to England with former India captain Dilip Vengsarkar’s academy. From that point on, he quickly moved up the ladder.

Jaiswal scored five fifties during the Under-19 World Cup in South Africa in February 2020, dominating the competition. He finished the competition with the most runs scored and the “Player of the Series” trophy in his kitbag. His scores were as follows: 88, 105*, 62, 57*, 29*, 59.
Prior to that, in December 2019, the Rajasthan Royals acquired him at the IPL auction for Rs 2.4 cr. The 21-year-old is coming of age in style after three IPL seasons with the team, which is renowned for investing in aspiring cricketers.
Despite playing in a losing cause, Jaiswal’s explosive 62-ball 124-run innings against the Mumbai Indians on Sunday night at the Wankhede Stadium still won him many admirers for his brilliant strokeplay.
A striking aspect of the youngster’s incredible innings was the power he generated while smashing eight sixes and 16 fours. One of the Jofra Archer balls he hooked for a six even left the Wankhede. Rohit Sharma, the captain of MI, was effusive in his praise for Jaiswal despite the fact that his team was the recipient of his scorching blade.
On a night when RR’s star players Jos Buttler, captain Sanju Samson, and Shimron Hetmyer all seemed to be having trouble with timing, Jaiswal was on fire, contributing 124 out of his team’s total of 212. Jaiswal is now the fifth uncapped player from India to score a century in an IPL game. His upcoming selection for the Indian team is generating an increasingly loud buzz.
