‘He Is Very Vibrant, Hope He Goes Far’, R Ashwin Prays For A Dynamic Career Of Yashasvi Jaiswal

Ravichandran Ashwin praised the newcomer Yashasvi Jaiswal who made his Test debut in the current match against West Indies in Dominica. Jaiswal not only made his debut but he also opened the innings with skipper Rohit Sharma.

During the first day of the ongoing match, Jaiswal and Indian captain Rohit Sharma showcased an impressive partnership. They contributed 80 runs and they are just 70 runs behind the West Indies. The West Indies bowlers faced difficulties as the batsmen appeared at ease. Rohit exhibited his exceptional pull-shot and graceful straight drive, while Jaiswal maintained a composed approach, adopting a defensive stance for the majority of the deliveries.

While talking about Jaiswal, Ashwin said, “He just reverse-swept the first ball of the last over! That’s what you can expect from him. He is very vibrant, I hope he goes far. From our side, we hope to keep the environment good for him.”

Ashwin was the star performer for India on Day and took five wickets to settle down the West Indian innings on 150 runs. He became the third Indian bowler after the veteran Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh to clinch 700 wickets in international cricket.

“Pretty good performance. There was moisture in the pitch in the first session. It got slow and started to spin a bit more. It got a lot slower. Personally enjoyed my first spell and had to adapt a bit more after. Not surprised with the pitch, I expected it to be a bit dry. In my previous tours of the West Indies, when it spins, it also tends to be slow,” Ashwin said.

“It is the most important trait to be an international cricketer. With so many leagues, we can get carried away with league performances but international cricket is all about getting better all the time.”
