IPL 2023: Yashasvi Jaiswal Broke Sanath Jayasuriya’s 2008 IPL Record

Yashasvi Jaiswal’s name is in discussion everywhere after his stormy innings of 124 runs against Mumbai Indians. There was no doubt about the batting skills of 21-year-old Yashasvi, who was a part of the Indian team that finished runners-up in the Under-19 World Cup 2020, but this inning showed that this magical batter is now in full form in terms of senior cricket and Indian team.

Yashasvi of Rajasthan Royals against Mumbai Indians on Sunday played an inning that indicated that he is fully ready for the senior team.

In the match, Yashasvi scored 124 runs in 62 balls, which included 16 fours and eight sixes. Out of his 124 runs, he scored 112 runs through boundaries. This is the record for scoring his maximum runs through fours and sixes in an IPL inning.

Yashasvi scored 90.32% of his runs through boundaries during this innings and left behind Sri Lankan batter Sanath Jayasuriya’s 2008 IPL record. Jayasuriya scored an unbeaten 114 runs against Chennai Super Kings for Mumbai Indians in the opening season of IPL with the help of 9 fours and 11 sixes, during which he scored 89.47% runs with fours and sixes.

Yashasvi reached Mumbai from UP to fulfill his dream of cricket and sold Panipuri for a living. His 124 runs is the highest individual score made by an uncapped player in the history of IPL. Yashasvi surpassed the score of 120 not out made by Paul Valthaty in 2008, who scored the same against Chennai Super Kings for Kings XI Punjab.

However, despite this century innings of Yashasvi, RR had to face defeat in the match. Batting first, RR scored 212 runs, during which more than half of the team’s runs (58.49%) came from Yashasvi’s bat. The second top scorer for Rajasthan Royals was Jos Buttler, who scored 18 runs. In response, Mumbai Indians achieved the target of 213 runs by losing four wickets with three balls to spare.
