IND vs AUS: ‘Fearless’ Yashasvi Jaiswal focused on ‘expressing himself’ following half-century in 2nd T20I


India opening batter Yashasvi Jaiswal said he’s focused on expressing himself following a brilliant half-century against Australia at the Greenfield Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. India beat Australia by 44 runs to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match T20I series.

Speaking after the win, Jaiswal said he was trying to be fearless and express himself against Australia. Jaiswal scored 53 runs off 25 balls, hitting nine boundaries and two sixes in the second T20I.

“It was really special for me. I was trying to play all my shots. I was trying to be fearless. I was sure of my decisions. I have been told by Surya bhai and VVS sir to go and play freely. I have been asked to express myself,” said Jaiswal.

He went on to say he apologized to Ruturaj Gaikwad following his run-out in the first T20I, insisting that he has really worked on his fitness and mentality. Jaiswal set a new record of scoring the most runs in the powerplay for India in the shortest format of the game.

“For me, what I think I can develop and not think about anything else. I am still learning. It was my mistake in the last game and said sorry to Ruturaj. Accepted was my mistake. Rutu bhai is so humble and very caring. I really worked on my fitness. I am trying to develop all my shots. The mental stuff is something I am working on. I believe in my practice sessions,” Jaiswal added.

Jaiswal’s innings, along with fifties from Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan, helped India post a massive total of 235 for 4 in the first innings. Ravi Bishnoi and Axar Patel were the star bowlers for India as they restricted the Aussies to 191 for 9, winning the match by 44 runs.

Following this win, India will look to seal the T20I series when they take on Australia at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati on Tuesday, November 28.
