New Delhi. Yashasvi Jaiswal has kept Rajasthan Royals’ playoff hopes alive by playing aggressive innings in IPL 2023. In a T20 league match, 21-year-old Yashasvi hit a half-century off just 13 balls against Kolkata Knight Riders. In the end, he remained unbeaten after scoring 98 runs. In the match, KKR scored 149 runs while playing first. In response, the Royals achieved the target for one wicket in 13.1 overs. In the match, an act of KKR’s young leg-spinner Suyyash Sharma is being criticized a lot.
Suyyash Sharma is bowling the 13th over of Rajasthan Royals’ innings. Captain Sanju Samson was in front on the last ball and the Royals needed only 3 runs to win. On the other hand, Yashasvi Jaiswal standing at the non-strike end was unbeaten on 94 runs. In such a situation, Suyash tried to put the last ball wide, so that Yashasvi’s century could be stopped. Although Sanju Samson stopped the ball while going ahead of the crease and indicated to Yashasvi that he should now complete his century by hitting a six.
