Young Indian batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal perhaps occupies the top spot amongst the youngsters to watch out for in IPL 2020. Yashasvi Jaiswal’s rise to stardom could inspire the next generation of aspiring cricketers to hang on and never let go of their dreams. As he prepares to rub shoulders with the likes of skipper Steve Smith, Jos Buttler, and Ben Stokes, Jaiswal is not concentrating on justifying his price tag.

Rajasthan Royals secured Yashasvi Jaiswal’s services for a sum of INR 2.4 crores in the auction that took place in December. The 18-year old has an outstanding List A record, having hammered 779 runs in 13 fixtures at 70.81 alongside three centuries. During a Vijay Hazare fixture, the southpaw smashed 203 to become the youngest double-centurion in List A cricket. With Buttler slated to open with the youngster, Rajasthan could have the best opening pair in the tournament.

The Uttar Pradesh-born cricketer revealed to be preparing hard in the nets alongside Robin Uthappa and Sanju Samson. Jaiswal underlined that playing with the white ball under the lights would be a challenge; however, sees it as an opportunity to entertain people with his skills. Rajasthan open their campaign against Chennai Super Kings on the 22nd of September in Sharjah.

It’s an away IPL and due to Covid it’s going to be a challenge. I’ve been preparing hard at the nets with seniors like Robin Uthappa and Sanju Samson. Playing with white ball under lights would be a different experience and I’m getting used to it. I’m excited to be part of the Rajasthan team in my first IPL. I have the chance to entertain people with my skills,” he added.
