New Delhi. Rajasthan Royals (RR) defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 7 wickets in the 47th match of IPL 2021. Batting first, CSK scored 189 runs for 4 wickets in the allotted over. In reply, Rajasthan won the match by 7 wickets after achieving the target 15 balls in advance. The hero of Rajasthan’s victory was 19-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal, who thrashed the CSK bowlers. Yashasvi hit a half-century off 21 balls with 6 fours and 3 sixes.
This 19-year-old opener thrashed Josh Hazlewood, a less experienced bowler for just a few years at his age. Hazlewood has 11 years of experience in International Cricket. Young batsman Yashasvi brought his balls to every corner of the field.
38 runs in 2 overs
Yashasvi scored 38 runs in two overs of Hazlewood including 2,4,0,2,4,4,0,6,6,4,6,0. Out of this, he scored 22 runs in just one over. Hazlewood proved to be a very expensive bowler for Chennai. He conceded 54 runs in 4 overs at an average of 13.50 without taking any wicket. Yashasvi had completed his half-century against Chennai in just 19 balls. He has become the second uncapped player to score the fastest fifty in IPL.
The record for the fastest uncapped player to score a half-century is in the name of Ishan Kishan, who did this feat in 17 balls. Rajasthan started very aggressively on the strength of this young opener. In the powerplay itself, Rajasthan scored 81 runs for the loss of one wicket. This aggressive start laid the foundation for Rajasthan’s victory. Chennai captain MS Dhoni also admitted that his team had lost in parplay.
