A young Indian is causing havoc in IPL 2023
Stakes his claim for Team India before the World Cup
New Delhi. ODI World Cup is to be played in India in October-November this year. Broadly speaking, India’s top order looks almost certain. Looking at the recent form, Shubman Gill can start the innings with captain Rohit Sharma. But, after seeing the way a young batsman has batted so far in IPL 2023, Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid will also be happy and this player can also be an option for the opening. The name of this batsman is Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Yashasvi Jaiswal created history in IPL 2023 a day ago. Playing for Rajasthan Royals, he hit Fifty in just 13 balls against Kolkata Knight Riders. This is the fastest half century in IPL history. Yashasvi scored an unbeaten 98 in 47 balls in the match. With this, he got 576 runs in 12 innings this season. In this way, he became the uncapped Indian who scored the most runs in any one season of IPL. He has left behind Ishaan Kishan (516).
Yashasvi’s performance is difficult to ignore
If a batsman is scoring runs in this stormy fashion, then how can one ignore him. Anyway, many players have reached Team India earlier also through IPL. In such a situation, after the explosive performance in IPL 2023, Yashasvi’s claim has also become stronger. This year is the ODI World Cup. While the T20 World Cup is to be played in 2024. In such a situation, Yashasvi can be an option in the opening in both the tournaments.
Yashasvi has also scored a century in this season of IPL
Chasing a target of 150 runs, Yashasvi Jaiswal scored an unbeaten 98 off 47 balls against Kolkata Knight Riders. During this, he hit 12 fours and 5 sixes. Not only this, Yashasvi hit 26 runs in the first over of Rajasthan’s innings itself, which is a record. Now which team will not need such a stormy batsman in the powerplay. Earlier, he also played a blistering inning of 124 against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium.
Shubman’s tension will increase
Please tell that Shubman Gill has done a bang in limited overs cricket in the last 1 year. For this reason, instead of a strong batsman like Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman is being considered as the biggest contender to open with Rohit Sharma in the World Cup. Shubman Gill has done a great job in both ODI and T20 in 2023 itself. Along with scoring a double century in ODIs against New Zealand, he also scored a century while opening in T20. That is, Gill’s bat is speaking in both the formats.

Ishaan’s headache will increase
At the same time, wicketkeeper batsman Ishaan Kishan has also done the feat of scoring a double century in ODIs on the tour of Bangladesh last year. His place in the ODI team is not confirmed. But, he definitely remains the first choice of the team management as an opener in T20. But, Ishaan’s bat has been silent in T20 so far this year. In such a situation, the kind of stormy batting Yashasvi Jaiswal has done in the IPL so far. This must have increased the restlessness of Shubman Gill and Ishaan.
Fifty in 13 balls… 26 runs in the first over, Yashasvi made a pile of records, just ahead of Yuvraj, Kohli equalized
successful technically sound batsman
The good thing about Yashasvi is that he is a left-handed batsman and completes the left-right hand combination in the top order. There is more consistency in his batting than Ishaan Kishan. He is technically better than Kishan and apart from hitting big shots, he can also rotate the strike. In such a situation, Team India is not far away for Yashasvi.
