I trust myself to do well when I go out there: Yashasvi Jaiswal

He’s all 20, but Yashasvi Jaiswal knows the art of making a strong comeback statement, as he did for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL last month and more recently in the Ranji Trophy knockouts for Mumbai this month.

After scoring one hundred in the quarterfinals and two tons in the semi-finals, Jaiswal was looking for his fourth century before Madhya Pradesh seaman Anubhav Agarwal beat him for 78 in the opening day of the Rani Trophy final here on Wednesday snapped.

“Yes, I’m a little sad about it, but this is cricket. You have to experience both the good and the bad (in part), and I’ve learned that now,” Jaiswal said after playing the day.

“Because in cricket things do not go the way you want (things have to go), but I try my best to improve myself as a cricketer and as a human being,” he said.

Jaiswal, during the IPL, was dropped after the first few games, but made a comeback in the Royals’ playing XI in the second half, scoring a couple of impressive half-tons.

Idem in Ranji Trophy, where he was dropped in the group stage and then returned with a hit from the quarterfinals, scoring nearly 500 runs.

“The same thing happened there in IPL. I got three games, was out, and came back (in the side) after seven games. But through all these holes I had it in my mind that I had to work hard and discipline all the time. be, “said Jaiswal.

He said in a lean phase, it is only hard work that returns.

“Working hard every day is important, because then I become consistent. When I dropped out of playing XI in IPL, I worked every day with Zubin sir (Zubin Bharucha, director of cricket at RR) and trained really well with support staff like Raj Muni and Yogesh. “Sir Zubin kept me motivated all the time,” he said with great gratitude.

While a Ranji Trophy final is a very different game from other matches, the stylish left-hander said he has a strong belief of doing well in stressful situations.

“A finale is different because you have a very different mentality. People who are close to me say so many things because they want me to do it right. They put pressure, of course. To be honest, “I’m glad to take that pressure, I enjoy it,” said the agreeable young man.

“I go out with the thought that I will do it. I trust and believe in myself that if I go out there, I will do it right,” he said in a confident tone.

That he is a good student of the game was evident when he talked about how he and his skipper Prithvi Shaw understood the trick of the MP team, which showed that they would start with a pacer and then introduced left-arm spinner Kumar Kartikeya.

“Of course we knew he (Kartikeya) would skip the first one. They played some tricks, like trying some things to disintegrate us mentally, which I’ve seen them do before,” he said.

“For example, the keeper goes far back and the fast bowler runs to the run, but we knew all along that Kartikeya will bowl because Shaw bhai told me about it. We were literally ready.

“We did not want them to think we were not ready. We were prepared enough. Whoever played handball, I did not care. I just had to look at the ball,” said Jaiswal.
