There are very few players who perform brilliantly on their debut. India’s 21-year-old batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal is also included among those brilliant players. Yashasvi scored a century in the first innings of the first Test match against the West Indies. Also, he also shared a 200-plus run partnership for the first wicket with skipper Rohit Sharma. The Indian team scored 312 runs for the loss of 2 wickets by the end of the second day’s play. Thus India got a lead of 143 runs.
Currently, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Virat Kohli are at the crease. Jaiswal scored 143 not out while Virat scored 36 not out. Also, Yashasvi Jaiswal has now commented on his Test debut century.
What did Jaiswal say?
Yashasvi Jaiswal said, “This is a very emotional innings for me. Getting a place in the Indian team is not easy. But I got the chance, I want to thank everyone for that. Especially, the team management, Rohit Sharma and my fans.” Speaking further, Jaiswal said, “Dominica’s pitch is slow. In addition, the outfield is also very slow. It is very difficult and challenging. Dominica is also very hot. However, I wanted to do well here for my country. I was concentrating on playing every ball. Also, enjoying our cricket too.”
‘It’s a very emotional moment for me’
Jaiswal further said, “I love Test cricket. Loves challenges. Especially when the ball is in swing and speed. I enjoyed playing in those conditions. We worked very hard. This is a very emotional moment for me. I am proud of myself. However, I would like to thank everyone. I liken this game to my parents. This is the beginning for me, I will continue to try to do well in the coming days.”
