Yashasvi Jaiswal had a standout performance in Rajasthan Royals’ most recent match against Kolkata Knight Riders as she recorded the fastest half-century in tournament history. When Rajasthan was given a target of 150 runs to pursue by the hosts, Jaiswal caused havoc on the field. He reached fifty off just 13 deliveries, putting his name in the record books.
The Men in Pink were able to chase down the mark in 13.1 overs as a result of his knock, which was followed by skipper Sanju Samson’s hard hitting, moving them up to third place in the IPL 2023 Points Table. Jaiswal had a memorable evening since he finished the game unbeaten on 98, but he also had a forgettable moment when his opening partner Jos Buttler was run out for a three-ball duck following an error in the second over.
Buttler was penalised 10% of his match fee for violating the IPL’s Code of Conduct as he left the field in agony and rage. After the game, when asked about the run-out, Jaiswal shared what captain Samson had said to him after Buttler was dismissed.
“I believe that nobody intentionally causes the game to run out of time. It gives me the obligation to continue and make sure I’m present. During the post-match presentation, Jaiswal remarked, “Sanju bhai came to me and said, ‘Don’t worry, keep playing your game, you are in nice touch,’ and I was OK.
The process is crucial: Jaiswal
Jaiswal was quite upbeat about the game moving forward after scoring the fastest half-century and aimed to turn the knock into a triple-digit score. He scored the winning runs while batting at a strike rate of over 200, amassing 98* runs off only 47 deliveries. Regarding his knock, Jaiswal claimed that he enters the field with confidence, which enables him to maintain a good mindset.
“I always have the desire to succeed in whatever I do. I believe in that. Good feeling that we prevailed. Even if not everything has gone well for me, I do my best. Process is crucial, as is how I prepare and what I tell myself, he continued.
