Don Bradman, Yashasvi Jaiswal


Former Indian National Cricket Team Opening batsman Aakash Chopra has praised 22-year-old left-handed opening batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal for his stupendous batting performance in the first innings of the second Test against the England national cricket team.

England is currently leading the five-match Test series against the Indian National Cricket Team by 1-0 and the second Test match is underway at the Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam.

After a disappointing defeat in the first test, the Indian national cricket team maintained a good position in the second test match. On Day 1, they were at 336/6 in 93 overs with Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ravichandran Ashwin unbeaten in the middle.

The only reason why India scored big on Day 1 is the batting performance of Yashasvi Jaiswal, who is still quite new to the field of international cricket.

Yashasvi Jaiswal did not get much support from his teammates as most of the Indian batsmen started but failed to convert it into a big score. Jaiswal did not waste his wicket like his teammates and scored an outstanding century. He scored 179 runs off 257 balls, with 17 fours and 5 sixes.

Speaking after the end of the first day’s play, Yashasvi Jaiswal also mentioned that head coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma had told him to continue batting till the end of the first innings and score his first double century in the longest format. Cricket cigar.

Yashasvi Jaiswal earned praise from the entire cricket fraternity for his wonderful century on Day 1 and Aakash Chopra was among the former cricketers who were highly impressed with the youngster.

The most fantastic performance came from the bat of Yashasvi Jaiswal – Aakash Chopra

After the play on day 1, Aakash Chopra shared a review video on his official YouTube channel where he talked about various topics, one of which was Jaiswal’s performance. Chopra was particularly impressed with Jaiswal’s ability to convert his openings into big scores and noted that the youngster is even ahead of the legendary Sir Don Bradman in terms of conversion rate. He elaborated:

“The most fantastic performance came from Yashasvi Jaiswal’s bat. How well the boy hit. Jimmy Anderson was the only pacer and he kept dropping the deliveries to him. He showed a lot of respect for James Anderson’s bowling.

“When spin came, he hit two fours in the first over. After that, he showed why this player is so special. His conversion rate of fifties to hundreds for players who have 10 or more centuries in first-class cricket is even above Sir Don Bradman at the moment.”

Aakash Chopra further compared Jaiswal’s performance with the rest of the Indian batsmen and praised him for playing according to the situation.

“Yashasvi is living up to his name. He proves every time that he is absolutely stellar. He is alone with 179 because the second highest is not even 40. So Yashasvi Jaiswal on one side and the rest of the Indian team on the other.

“It showed how you need to play spin on a surface that plays like a real Indian surface. Not a bad release, there’s not much help for spin, on day 1 of course. He smothered full deliveries and hit them hard. He did not hesitate to hit the air and reached his century with a six”.

Notably, Yashasvi Jaiswal has a conversion rate of 73.33%, which is the best among batsmen who have scored a minimum of 10 centuries in first c.cricket girl
