That’s a great sign for an opening batsman – Ishant Sharma
During a discussion about JioCinema, Ishant Sharma highlighted that Yashasvi Jaiswal refrained from playing the cover unit. Ishant noted that Jaiswal played pulling and slicing shots against the new ball.
“According to me, he’s absolutely ready because if you look at this inning as well, all the limits he’s reached, especially against the new ball, they all came on slice or jump shots.” Ishant said.
“It’s a great sign for a leadoff hitter when he refrains from playing a coverage line for a full delivery. If you play on deck, there’s a chance you’ll get caught behind or in the slips.” added.

Very important for a starter – Ishant Sharma
The 34-year-old claimed that Yashasvi Jaiswal showed good technique by playing with the full face of the bat when the ball was delivered.
“He looked to score runs only with cuts and jerks against the new ball, which is every hitter’s strength. Whenever the ball was thrown up, barring the occasional loose shot, he either defended it or played with the full face of the bat. This becomes very important for a starter.” He concluded.

“The biggest challenge in England will be how you play the lateral movement. He has the technique for that. If we talk about Australia, he is also denying the rebound well. So he has these two things”, added.
