Yashasvi Jaiswal has been selected in the Indian Test team for the first time
New Delhi. The past few months have been wonderful for Yashasvi Jaiswal. After a bang debut in first class cricket, Yashasvi created a furore in IPL 2023 as well. He became the uncapped Indian who scored the most runs in a single season. The fastest fifty of IPL also hit. As a reward for this performance, he got a place in the Indian Test team for the first time. Yashasvi has been selected in the Indian Test team for the West Indies tour.
Like many young players, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s advice helped Yashasvi Jaiswal to reach this point. Yashasvi has made a big disclosure about his first meeting with Dhoni and the advice he got from him after being selected in the Indian Test team. Yashasvi also told how Dhoni’s one advice improved his game.
How did Dhoni’s advice change Yashasvi’s game?
Talking to Indian Express, Yashasvi Jaiswal said about the first meeting with Mahendra Singh Dhoni, “It was one of the special moments of my life. This was the first time I saw Dhoni up close. I tried to talk to him during the game. He told me to keep playing cricketing shots and believe in myself and keep my mind as calm as possible. If all these things were simple, but to implement them in real life, you must have a lot of patience.
Yashasvi further said that I don’t get clouded after hearing praise. I try to keep my focus on the game only. If someone says ‘Wow, Yashasvi, what a shot you have played’, ‘What a catch you have played’ or ‘What a run out’, I take it as a blessing. I want to be humble and enjoy my game. I respect what God has given me and want to take it forward keeping calm.
