New Delhi. Team India’s young star Yashasvi Jaiswal (Yashasvi Jaiswal) has become the center of discussion worldwide after scoring a century in the debut test against the West Indies. In the match, 21-year-old Yashasvi played an excellent inning of 171 runs. Its great thing is that the maturity he showed during his batting, it did not seem that he was starting his international career. Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg has praised Yashasvi’s innings. He said that the way this young batsman ‘adopted’ the style of Test cricket from T20 cricket is commendable.
Hogg praised Yashasvi’s playing skills, particularly her ability to play off the backfoot and use both ends of the wicket. This Australian veteran shared a video on his Instagram account and said, ‘Yashasvi, the left-handed batsman who dominated the IPL this year, likes to play in that style but the way he entered the Test format, he I also liked the style. The team that impressed me was their game on the backfoot. Late cut on the offside and pull shot on the leg side.
Able to adapt his game to the longest format
Brad Hogg further said, ‘I liked his point that he has been able to adapt his game from T20 to the longest format of cricket. They have patience. He adapted his game to red ball cricket and played an important role for India. This is the bright future of Indian cricket. I also liked the fact that the Indian team management got Jaiswal to open and sent Gill to number three.
Brad Hogg was counted as Australia’s best ‘Chinaman’ bowler but due to the presence of great spinners like Shane Warne, he did not get many opportunities to play international cricket. 156 in 123 ODIs and seven wickets in 15 T20Is to Hogg’s name registered on. In seven Tests, he took 17 wickets representing the Australian team.
