Yashasvi Jaiswal, the opener for the Rajasthan Royals, received high appreciation from former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar following her amazing century against the Mumbai Indians. Notably, on Sunday, April 30, MI defeated the Royals in a gripping match by six wickets at Mumbai’s venerable Wankhede Stadium.
Despite being on the losing end, Jaiswal’s performance received a ton of praise from cricket enthusiasts and players. The Royals’ southpaw maintained a fantastic strike rate of 200 while slamming 16 home runs and 8 sixes in his 124 off 62. The RR opener received high accolades from Manjrekar, who dubbed it the best IPL young player performance.
It must be the best batting display by a young Indian batter in the IPL’s history. Manish Pandey has already achieved 100; he was still quite young at the time. The size of his individual score in comparison to the score of his team, however, is only to watch him bat. That’s a significant consideration, too,” Manjrekar told Star Sports.
“A breakthrough inning is when one player contributes more than half of the team’s total score. For the Rajasthan Royals, one batter contributed. Yashasvi Jaiswal has reached adulthood. There are numerous young Indian batsmen who are prepared to represent their country in T20 matches, he continued.
Jaiswal creates a fantastic century that rewrites history.
Jaiswal scored the highest individual goal by an uncapped player in the premier division, which is noteworthy. The batsman broke Paul Valthaty’s illustrious record of 120 runs against CSK in 2011 for Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings), which had stood for a long time.
At the age of 21 years and 123 days, the southpaw is also the fourth-youngest batter to record a century. The previous best was achieved by Manish Pandey, who did it at the age of 19 years, 253 days. Jaiswal also received the IPL Orange Cap as a result of the victory over Mumbai. The batter has scored 428 runs in nine innings, adding three fifty-run innings and one hundred-run innings.
