Rohit Sharma’s Reaction To Yashasvi Jaiswal’s Ton Is Not Something You See Often. Watch

  • February 17, 2024

Yashasvi Jaiswal ruled the roost on Saturday as the young India opener raced to his third Test century. During his second innings in the Rajkot Test match against England, Jaiswal crafted a superb knock that helped him reclaim his authority over the Three Lions in the ongoing five-match Test series. After a slow and careful start, the southpaw raced to his half-century in 80 balls before changing gears and competing his ton in 122 balls. Mighty pleased with Jaiswal reaching the three-figure mark, India captain Rohit Sharma erupted in joy in the dressing room. The reaction of Rohit is now going viral on social media.

“He is so happy for teammates,” wrote a fan. “It’s all of us when Jaiswal plays,” wrote another fan.

“Captain motivates their younger” and “Rohit is a great captain” was also among comments.

England’s Ben Duckett on Saturday called India’s Jaiswal a “superstar in the making” but said his side deserves credit for inspiring players in the opposition camp to bat aggressively in Test cricket.

Jaiswal dished out his own version of England’s much talked-about ‘Bazball’ approach of run-making in Test cricket, cracking nine fours and five sixes in his 133-ball 104 before retiring hurt due to back spasms.

The Indian opener shifted gears all of a sudden in the final session. Having reached 35 off 73 balls, he peppered the field with powerful strokes to bring up his second century of the series and third overall in his career.

“When you see players from the opposition playing like that, it almost feels like we should take some credit that they’re playing differently than how other people play Test cricket,” Duckett told the media during a press conference in Rajkot.

“We saw it a bit in the summer and it’s quite exciting to see other players and other teams are also playing that aggressive style of cricket.”

“He looks like a superstar in the making, unfortunately he’s in some very good form at the moment. He’s due a couple of low ones,” Duckett said while making a tongue-in-cheek remark.
