Yashasvi Jaiswal has proven himself to be one of the improved cricketers as he took the IPL head on and almost single-handedly fought the battle for the Rajasthan Royals where the latter crashed out of the tournament ahead of the play-offs.
However, the fate of the team doesn’t define the fate of an individual, rather it tells you a story how Yashasvi Jaiswal raised himself and separated himself from the hallowed likes of Jos Buttler, one of the biggest names in international cricket. He was added as a standby to the Indian cricket team ahead of the WTC finale and here are three reasons why this would be a massive move for him.
It doesn’t matter whether he plays for the team or not, it doesn’t matter whether he makes it to the final eleven or not, what does matter is that this will be a massive learning experience for the youngster. Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit Sharma, these names rub off you even before you realise. The kind of exposure that he would receive would simply bolster the learnings and techniques going forward from here.
#2 Fearless batter that would provide ample back up to Rohit Sharma
Gone are the days when one would just sit back and defend while opening the innings for your side. In the modern era of Bazball, fans expect to have one such opener who would take the bowlers head on and start smashing from the word go. This is why Yashasvi Jaiswal makes a strong case for himself, particularly keeping in mind that India can have one of their very own brand of Bazball.
#3 Has the ability to turn the stars into big knocks
If given a chance, Yashasvi Jaiswal can knock the cherry around at will but his biggest strength is that he can smoke the ball even after he has been there for a while. The man knows exactly how to channelise his energy and the kind of strengths that would make him the perfect horse for the course when his team needs him to keep on going on. The ability to turn the starts into bigger knocks what makes him very special.
