Yashaswi Jaiswal Joins Exclusive Club, Scores Match-Winning Century Against MI

Yashasvi Jaiswal was undoubtedly at his best form on Monday’s match against Mumbai Indians. The Rajasthan Royals batsman bashed the MI bowlers at his team’s home ground in jaipur.

Jaiswal scored an unbelievable 104 off 60 balls which led Rajasthan Royals to a beautiful nine-wicket victory over the Mumbai Indians in an IPL 2024 match.

This being Rajasthan’s 7th win in the season, has given them 4 more points to retain themselves at the top position of the points table. 

The match against MI turned out to be good for Jaiswal as he had recorded scores of 24, 5, 10, 0, 24, 39 and 19 this year before the innings on Monday. His lack of big scores was puzzling considering the record Test series he had against England earlier in the year. 

Yashaswi reminds of his talent

Although the 22 year old batsman for Rajasthan Royals had scored 625 runs last season at a strike rate of 163.61 and average of 48.08, he had a limited score set of 24, 5, 10, 0, 24, 39 and 19 this year. Monday’s innings changed that. 

Jaiswal got to his century in 59 balls and hit the winning runs with a four off the fourth ball of the penultimate over. Jaiswal hit nine fours and seven sixes in his innings. This was his second century in the IPL and, notably, his first was against MI as well. This makes him the sixth player to score a century more than once against the same team. The 22-year-old thus joins a list that is led by KL Rahul, who has scored three centuries against MI. 

Kohli, Warner, Gayle, Buttler have scored more than a century against the same team.

Chris Gayle (vs Punjab Kings), Virat Kohli (vs Gujarat Lions), David Warner (vs Kolkata Knight Riders) and Jos Buttler (vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Kolkata Knight Riders) have all got two centuries against a single opposition. 

Being the youngest of the lot, Yashaswi has set the record as the first player in IPL history to score two centuries before turning 23. Jaiswal’s RR teammate Buttler, has scored two centuries against two different oppositions each.

really enjoyed it from the start and I made sure I was watching the ball properly and playing proper cricketing shots,” Jaiswal told the broadcaster after the match. “I’m trying to do what I am doing well, some days it comes good and some days it doesn’t, (but) I’m not thinking much,” he added.
