Former India National Cricket Team player Virender Sehwag was highly impressed with the performance of young Rajasthan Royals (RR) opening batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal in the IPL 2022 match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Friday.

The young Rajasthan Royals (RR) opener scored a crucial 59 runs off 44 balls, including 8 fours and 1 six, to help Sanju Samson and Co. win the match by 5 wickets and book their spot in Qualifier 1 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.

Speaking to Cricbuzz, Sehwag said that Jaiswal batted better than Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson in the powerplay overs against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

“Buttler and Samson have scored runs in plenty in the tournament. And when they didn’t, someone else had to step in. That was done by Jaiswal and Ashwin. They stepped in and took their team home. Especially the way Yashasvi played in the powerplay, he looked much better than Buttler and Samson,” Sehwag told Cricbuzz.

He further praised Jaiswal for his cautious batting approach after the dismissals of Buttler and Samson.

“He (Jaiswal) did get slow after the fall of Samson and Buttler but it was the need of the hour. He applied his brain. Because there was no MS Dhoni for RR who would have taken the game deeper and ended it in the end. So, Jaiswal batted brilliantly,” he added.

Sehwag also said that watching Jaiswal finish off the game with Ravichandran Ashwin would have been great and he recalled Sachin Tendulkar’s word about what a batter should do when he is having a great day.

“It would have been fun if he had finished the game with Ashwin. A mix of youth and experience would have been a treat to watch. And this is what the youngster needs to learn. Because Sachin had told me once that when it’s your day, just score. Because when you don’t get runs, you starve for it,” Sehwag said.

Former India opener Sehwag further added that his only advice to Jaiswal would be to keep scoring runs whenever he is having a good day with the bat.

“So, my advice to Jaiswal is to keep scoring when you are able to do that. Because you will get out somewhere in the next game but you won’t get runs then,” Sehwag concluded.
