In the 38th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, Rajasthan Royals (RR) batter Yashasvi Jaiswal silenced his critics with a brilliant century (104 runs off 60 balls) against Mumbai Indians (MI). Jaiswal had been struggling with form prior to this match, leading some to question his selection for the T20 World Cup 2024 squad. However, his dominant performance effectively countered this criticism.

Rohit Sharma hugs Yashasvi Jaiswal after century heroics

Indian captain Rohit Sharma shared a heartwarming moment with Jaiswal after his sensational match-winning century against MI. Sharma’s embrace seemed to express his pride in the young talent who had been struggling for form in this year’s IPL. Jaiswal, previously considered a contender for the T20 World Cup opener’s slot, had seen his spot become uncertain due to a string of low scores in the initial seven matches of the IPL.

Jaiswal’s century marks sensational comeback

In a resounding response to his detractors, Jaiswal delivered a match-winning knock against MI in the IPL 2024. Despite a sluggish start to the season, where he managed only 121 runs in the initial seven matches at a strike rate of 145, Jaiswal showcased a resurgence with an authoritative 104 not out. His explosive performance proved pivotal in RR’s pursuit of MI’s total of 179/9, anchored by Tilak Varma (65) and Nehal Wadhera(49).

This century marked Jaiswal’s second in the IPL, underscoring his return to top form. While Sandeep Sharma’s historic achievement of claiming his first-ever IPL five-wicket haul (5/18) was commendable, Jaiswal’s innings remained the linchpin of RR’s commanding triumph. The Royals comfortably achieved the target with nine wickets to spare, showcasing their dominance in the contest.
