Nasser Hussain Slams Ben Duckett Over Attempt to Claim Credit for Yashasvi Jaiswal’s Aggressive Batting

In the third Test match against England, Team India registered a massive win of 434 runs. With that win, India took the lead in the series by 2-1. In that match, Yashasvi Jaiswal played an unbeaten double-hundred knock. After that, Ben Duckett commented on that. Nasser Hussain criticized Ben Duckett for attempting to claim credit for Yashasvi Jaiswal‘s aggressive batting.

Yashasvi’s Explosive Knock and Duckett’s Comment:

Jaiswal, taking his time at first, reached a half-century in 80 balls but then went on a batting spree, finishing unbeaten with an impressive 214 off 236 balls. His remarkable performance included hitting 12 sixes, matching the world record set by former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram. Jaiswal’s explosive innings played a crucial role in setting a massive 557-run target for England. The visitors struggled and were eventually bowled out for just 122, resulting in India winning the match by a commanding 434-run margin.

After that, English batter Ben Duckett commented After Jaiswal played his destructive knock. He said, “When you see players from the opposition playing like that, it almost feels like we should take some credit that they’re playing differently than how other people play Test cricket.”

Hussain’s Criticism:

Hussain, on the other hand, didn’t appreciate the comments made by the England left-hander. The ex-captain mentioned that Jaiswal’s success can be attributed to his upbringing, dedication, and experience in the IPL. He said, “The comment on Jaiswal that he has learned from us, I am going to touch on that. He has not learned from you, he has learned from his upbringing and all the hard yards he has put in while growing up, he has learned from the IPL. If anything, I would look at him and learn from him.”

Later he added, “So, whatever they are saying in public and in that dressing room, I hope they are going back into their room with self-introspection. I can look at that lad and learn from him. Otherwise, it becomes a cult, doesn’t it? At times, Bazball has been described as a cult where you cannot criticize either within or externally. Even in this regime, there is room for learning and improving.”

Hussain Praised Sarfaraz Khan:

Hussain also praised India’s batsman Sarfaraz Khan, who achieved two half-centuries during his Test debut in Rajkot. He said, “He has obviously done the hard yards in the first-class cricket. He has got a shedload of runs. People have been singing his praise for quite some time. He was not going to be like a novice coming in. He has got the weight of first-class runs but you never know, when someone arrives on the biggest stage, and when you have to wait so long, it’s the character. Can he do it on that big stage? Small sample size but it definitely looks like he can. It’s not just the runs in both innings, it’s the way he got those runs, they were eye-catching.”
