Yashasvi Jaiswal is a dedicated cricket fan who has no qualms about consulting cricket greats like MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, etc. for advice on how to further his game.
With an undefeated knock of 98 runs, young opening batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal led Rajasthan Royals to a 9-wicket victory over Kolkata Knight Riders. While preparing for a high-pressure, high-stakes game like the “intense one” against KKR, which he will “remember for a long time,” Jaiswal, who is widely regarded as Indian cricket’s “Next Big Thing,” adheres to a few simple rules. The left-hander mentioned his chats with cricket greats like MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, etc. as reasons for his improved performance.
Jaiswal has scored 575 runs in 12 games with a strike rate of 167 or better. He hit the IPL’s fastest half-century in 13 balls en route to his stunning 98 not out in 47 balls. With 575 runs, he is only one run below Faf du Plessis’ current score. The opening batter is keeping his head on straight by consulting cricketing greats like Kohli, Dhoni, and Rohit.
I do my best to maintain focus and stay in the zone. Many veterans and great players are on my team. In order to maintain mental stability, I regularly consult with MS bhai, Virat (Kohli) bhai, Rohit (Sharma) bhai, Jos (Buttler) bhai, and Sanju (Samson) bhai.
I’m always looking for methods to better myself and my game, new techniques for maintaining command, and so on. This is a mental game that requires some physical skill. You have to stay in the zone. In 2019, Jaiswal gained notoriety after he hit a domestic one-day double century at the age of 17 (292 days), making him the youngest batter in the world.
The Royals made an investment in the then-17-year-old by signing him for Rs 2.4 crore, or 12 times his base price, for the next IPL-2020 season. Before his breakthrough year, he had played 23 times and scored only three fifties. Against the Mumbai Indians at Wankhede, he made 124 runs off 62 balls.
