Cricket legend Brian Lara has heaped praise on Yashasvi Jaiswal for his remarkable resurgence in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Jaiswal’s scintillating century against the Mumbai Indians guided the Rajasthan Royals to a convincing nine-wicket victory, marking a significant turnaround in his form this season.

‘Shown a lot of responsibility and maturity’

– Brian Lara lauds Yashasvi Jaiswal’s resurgence

In a post-match analysis on Star Sports Cricket Live, Lara lauded Jaiswal’s sterling performance, emphasizing his maturity and responsibility on the field. “It was well put together, great cricketing shots, he’s managed throughout the innings,” Lara remarked. “And anyone knows, if you’re chasing such a good total, at Jaipur and you bounce through the innings, you’re soon going to get there.”

Before his match-winning innings, the 22-year-old southpaw had been struggling to find his form, scoring a mere 121 runs from seven matches, averaging 17.29 with the bat. However, Jaiswal’s unbeaten 104 off just 60 balls against Mumbai Indians not only marked his second century of the tournament but also his first fifty-plus score in IPL 2024. He anchored the chase perfectly, smashing nine fours and seven sixes.

“Yashasvi showed resilience and composure to find his groove again, ending his run of ordinary scores with a much-needed century,” Lara remarked.

Lara emphasized Jaiswal’s approach, stating, “He’s taking his time, looking at the ball right from up at the back, and he’s playing cricketing shots. He’s got all the stuff, he doesn’t have to worry about it.”

Furthermore, Lara was impressed by Jaiswal’s display of responsibility and maturity on the field, noting, “He has shown a lot of responsibility, a lot of maturity, and I’m very happy to have him back.”

Jaiswal’s return to form comes at a crucial juncture for the Rajasthan Royals as they gear up for four away games in the tournament. With their young opener finding his rhythm, the Royals will be hoping to carry forward the momentum and secure vital wins in the upcoming matches.

Jaiswal’s resurgence is not just a testament to his skill but also to his mental strength and determination, qualities that are vital for success at the highest level of the game. As the tournament progresses, all eyes will be on Jaiswal as he looks to build on this stellar performance and continue making valuable contributions to his team’s campaign in IPL 2024.
