U19 star Yashasvi Jaiswal had a rough start to this edition’s IPL as he was dropped after a few games due to a string of failures. However, the Mumbaikar came back strong in his comeback match against PBKS as he notched up his first IPL 50 of the season to help RR chase a mammoth total of 190 at Wankhede.
Yashasvi Jaiswal was also awarded the Player of the Match for his match-winning innings. But the youngster received a special gift from his skipper Sanju Samson after his tremendous knock.
Skipper Samson promised to gift this little brother Jaiswal a new bat. A video shared by the social team of Rajasthan Royals revealed the candid conversation between Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal.
“Don’t worry. You will have a new bat in your room tonight. For sure. Don’t worry. A gift from your elder brother. A gift from your chetta. A new bat for Yashsvi Jaiswal,” Sanju tells Jaiswal in Hindi in a video posted on Twitter by Royals.
