Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has applauded Yashasvi Jaiswal for his stunning knock of 171 on his Test debut against West Indies in Dominica. He played a marathon knock and made sure that India needed to bat only once in the Test match. He also opined that while Jaiswal has all the talent needed to be successful, he should continue to do the hard work as he feels that will help him to reach newer heights.
In a video on his YouTube channel, Harbhajan Singh said: “Yashasvi Jaiswal has had an impact straightaway in international cricket. Although he will be disappointed to have missed out on getting a double hundred, I feel we are going to see him play for India for a very long time. There’s no shortage of talent and my advice to Jaiswal would be that, ‘Work really hard because you have what it takes to conquer the world.'”
He continued: “There was a lot of talk that Rohit hasn’t scored big runs for 2-3 years, so congratulations to him. Virat also looked good for his 76. However, he will be disappointed to not have got the hundred and his fans too were eagerly waiting for him to get to that landmark.”
However, Harbhajan Singh has no doubt that India will win the second Test as well and complete a 2-0 whitewash over the West Indies. The second Test will take place at Port of Spain, Trinidad, from Thursday, July 20 as well.
“The result of this series is a forgone conclusion as I feel it will be 2-0. Indian players have another opportunity to score runs and pick wickets and maintain their good form. This form will help them in their upcoming games,” he concluded.
