After the conclusion of the IPL 2023 game in Jaipur on Sunday, a clip of Virat Kohli and Yashasvi Jaiswal was shown, indicating that the Rajasthan Royals (RR) star is looking to complete a fabulous season. Eventually, it was a game that went in favor of the visitors after RR produced a horrifying batting performance despite playing at home, going down for only 59 runs in 103 overs as RCB pulled a commanding a 112-run win to boost their chances of making the playoffs.
Yashasvi Jaiswal had a chance to showcase his talent in front of the modern-era great in Jaipur, just days after his fiery knock of 98 runs which drew huge praise from Kohli, but he was dismissed for a two-ball duck with the latter completing the dismissal with a catch in the second ball of RR’s chase.

Nevertheless, the 21-year-old managed to have an interaction with Virat Kohli with the former RCB skipper dedicating a lengthy time. IPL later shared a glimpse of the chart with the caption: “As special as it gets. 𝘼𝙣 𝙪𝙣𝙢𝙞𝙨𝙨𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 ft. @imVkohli & @ybj_19.”
Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra, looking at the clip while in conversation with Jio Cinema, reckoned that they aren’t talking about the match here, but Kohli might be giving him tips on where to improve in a bid to join the Indian team.
Here is the video of the incident:

Earlier this week, when Yashasvi had smashed a match-winning 98 against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens, Kohli showered praises on the RR star in his Instagram story. He had written, “Wow, this is some of the best batting I’ve seen in a while. What a talent, Yashasvi Jaiswal.”

When the 21-year-old was later informed about the social media post by teammate Yuzvendra Chahal, he was left stunned and later thanked Kohli as well on Instagram. The dismissal for the duck was a rare blip in an otherwise stunning IPL 2023 season for Yashasvi, who has amassed 575 runs in 13 innings with a century and four fifties. He presently stands second in the race for the Orange Cap.
