Left-handed batter Yashasvi Jaiswal has said that playing with Jos Buttler at the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) has helped him immensely. The youngster is currently playing in the Ranji Trophy Final for Mumbai against Madhya Pradesh at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore and managed to score 78 runs in the first innings on Day 1 as well. He also said that Buttler, who won the Orange Cap in the IPL 2022, advised him to stay focused and go for shots which are needed.
“I try to follow his tips, which have helped me. Watch the ball, understand the situation and keep playing good cricketing shots that I follow,” Jaiswal was quoted as saying in a video uploaded on BCCI Domestic’s Twitter handle after the end of the first day’s play.
However, Yashasvi Jaiswal came into the final after making three tons on a trot. He was looking good for his fourth against MP before fast bowler Anubhav Agarwal accounted for his wicket.
“I am happy that I made three centuries. I missed it today, but it is okay,” he further stated.
However, he also expressed pride in representing Mumbai at the domestic level and added that while playing for Mumbai, one can’t afford to be complacent by any means as well. Notably, he has scored 497 runs from five innings which came at an average of 99.40 with three centuries and one half-century as well.
“It’s a proud moment whenever I wear this cap and I am really blessed. I am tough mentally because I am playing for Mumbai. While playing for Mumbai, all the time you need to be on your toes,” Yashasvi Jaiswal concluded.
