Yashasvi Jaiswal is one of the brightest up-and-coming batters in Indian cricket. The 21-year-old was influential for his side in domestic cricket and even impressed with his knocks at the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. He was also the highest run-getter for Rajasthan Royals and the fifth-highest scorer of the IPL 2023 with 625 runs in 14 matches.
His fabulous performances saw him make his way into the Indian squad as a backup in the final of the World Test Championship. However, the 21-year-old did not get a chance in the starting XI. His performance in the training sessions in England and his recent showings did get him a spot in the Indian squad for the upcoming West Indies tour.
Notably, the West Indies and India face each other in a multi-format series that is scheduled to begin on July 12. The series kicks off with two Test matches, three ODIs and will finish with five T20I matches.
As Jaiswal was picked in the squad for the tour, the 21-year-old was captured receiving some invaluable advice from star batter Virat Kohli. The 34-year-old examined Jaiswal’s technique pointed out some errors and shared his inputs with the 21-year-old.
In a video posted by the veteran sports journalist, Vimal Kumar, Kohli was seen giving a long pep talk to Jaiswal to help him improve his technique. Furthermore, 23-year-old Shubman Gill was also seen overhearing the conversation between Kohli and Jaiswal as he padded up for practice.
Team India will start their World Test Championship's new cycle against West Indies
With the two-match Test series right around the corner, team India would look to reciprocate their heartbreaking loss to Australia in the final of the World Test Championship recently. Led by Rohit Sharma, India continued their wait for an ICC title, as they lost their second consecutive WTC final, at The Oval, in London.
After that loss, the side would look to get back to winning ways and kick off the new WTC cycle on a positive note.
