“This tour has been a learning experience for me. Different environment and in every sense, it has been an enjoyable experience. Learnt about improvements I need to make. The ball comes differently here, and I tried giving my all, but I accept there were challenges. This experience will keep me in good stead as I am learning and would strive to improve during the next series,” Jaiswal was quoted as saying by RevSportz. “Rohit Sharma helps me maintain a positive frame of mind, and we needed to score runs quickly against the new ball. I just wanted to give a good start, and that was all there in my mind as we had to win the match.”

Meanwhile, Yashasvi Jaiswal also clarified he has multiple styles of play and he can change as per the situation as well. He further explained that he would bat differently on Day 1 of a Test match in comparison to the second Test when 70 runs are needed.

“There’s no particular style I want to adhere to, and it’s not that I have an attacking game only. I can change my game as per the team’s demands. In the last three innings and even in this knock, I had done the same thing. I would bat differently if it’s the first day and differently if it’s the final session and 70 runs needed. I try to change my game as per the team’s needs,” Yashasvi Jaiswal said.
