Yashasvi Jaiswal finally arrives in IPL 2024, smashes a superb 100 vs MI after a dry spell

Rajasthan Royals recorded a comfortable nine-wicket win over Mumbai Indians, in which Yashasvi Jaiswal starred with a superb century

After a string of underwhelming performances, Yashasvi Jaiswal roared back to form with a spectacular century, guiding the Rajasthan Royals (RR) to a convincing win over the Mumbai Indians (MI) on Monday.

Jaiswal, who had been struggling for form in the ongoing IPL season, exploded for a match-winning 104* runs off just 60 balls. His knock was laced with nine boundaries and seven towering sixes, a display of power-hitting that left the MI bowlers hapless.

Chasing a target of 180 runs, RR rode on Jaiswal’s brilliance to seal the victory with ease. Jaiswal stitched a magnificent unbeaten stand of 109 runs in 64 balls alongside Sanju Samson.

Notably, this was Jaiswal’s second IPL hundred, both of which have come against MI. In doing so, the southpaw has become the youngest (22 years and 116 days old) player to smash multiple IPL tons.

This knock comes as a major confidence booster for Jaiswal. The left-hander who had been struggling with the bat in the recent past. Prior to this match, he had managed only 121 runs in seven innings, averaging a meager 17.29. The pressure to perform was mounting, with his selection for the upcoming T20 World Cup on the line. However, Jaiswal silenced his critics with a dominant display, underlining his talent and potential.
