Happy To See My Name With Legends: Yashasvi Jaiswal
While speaking to the Times of India, Yashasvi Jaiswal said that he was unaware of his record and came to know when his teammates informed him in the dressing room. He also said that he was happy to see his name with legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma.
“I wasn’t aware of this record. When I returned to the dressing room, my teammates told me about this. I am honoured to see my name with legends like Sachin sir, Wasim sir, Rohit and Ajinkya,” Jaiswal said.
Jaiswal, who plays for Rajasthan Royals in IPL, revealed how he planned to execute his batting in the match.
“I studied the wicket and realised that it was slow. When Prithvi got out, I discussed the plan with Armaan Jaffer. I wanted to give myself time at the crease because I wanted to stay in the middle for as long as possible. This was my plan. I know it took me a lot of balls to get off the mark, but once I was settled, I started accelerating,” Jaiswal told Times of India.
