The kind of form Yashasvi Jaiswal is in recent times, it would have taken something special from the bowlers to get rid of him in the ongoing game between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

The southpaw came into IPL 2024 on the back of a stunning performance in the five-match Test series against England. Playing his first Test series at home, Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a staggering 712 runs in the series. No other batter from either team could even touch the 460-run mark. The Mumbai star smashed two back-to-back centuries as well as three half-centuries as India came from behind to win the series 4-1.

With Yashasvi Jaiswal in great form, it was widely expected that he would hit the ground running in IPL 2024. However, he has failed to do well with the bat so far. In his first game of the season, he got the start against Lucknow Super Giants and raced away to 24 off just 10 balls before being dismissed. 

In the ongoing game against Delhi Capitals, he could score only 5 runs before being bowled by an absolute beauty by his India teammate Mukesh Kumar. On the second ball of the over, Yashasvi Jaiswal hit the pacer for a four before being cast by him on the fifth ball.

Bowling from around the stumps, Mukesh Kumar bowled an angled delivery and beat the opener’s inside edge before the ball went on to crash into the stumps.

Watch as Mukesh Kumar cleans up Yashasvi Jaiswal:

Talking about the game, the Royals are in deep trouble after being asked to bat first. At the time of writing this report, they were reeling at 38 for 3 after eight overs. After Yashasvi Jaiswal departed cheaply, Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson failed to get going as well and were dismissed for 11 and 15 respectively.

The Rajasthan-based outfit began their season with a 20-run win over LSG and would be hoping to extend their winning start. On the other hand, DC is eyeing their first win of IPL 2024 after losing their first game against Punjab Kings.
