‘We know his quality…’: Kumar Sangakkara on Yashasvi Jaiswal | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Rajasthan Royals (RR) Director of Cricket Kumar Sangakkara, stated after his team’s six-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) that opener Yashasvi Jaiswal is a quality player who simply has to bat long.
Virat Kohli‘s blitzkrieg century was in vain as Rajasthan Royals (RR) defeated Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) by six wickets on Saturday with Jos Buttler‘s explosive century that lit up Sawai Mansingh Stadium.
Following the win, Sangakkara said during the post-match presentation about Jaiswal, who has scored just 39 runs in four matches with the best score of 24, “Jaiswal has had a brilliant year or two not just for RR but also in international cricket, two bad innings do not make anyone a bad player, we know his quality and we just want him to bat long, it was nice to chase down this total without his contribution.”
Jaiswal’s dismal performance in the Indian Premier League follows an amazing Test series against England from January to March, during which he amassed 712 runs in five games, including two double hundreds.
His trip with the Royals in the Indian Premier League 2023 proved to be his first taste of international cricket; he finished as the fifth top run-getter in 14 matches with 625 runs at an average of over 48, including five fifty-fives and a century.
