Yashasvi Jaiswal’s upbringing responsible for batter’s fine form: Nasser Hussain rubbishes Ben Duckett’s claim

Yashasvi played a fantastic knock of 214 runs in the 2nd innings of the IND vs ENG 3rd Test, putting the hosts in contention for series-leading win.

Former England captain Nasser Hussain has rubbished Ben Duckett’s claim that Indian opener Yashasvi Jaiswal has adopted his aggressive brand of cricket from England’s ‘Bazball’ approach. Hussain has assserted that Yashasvi has learned his cricket and batting because of his upbringing and all the hard work he has put in.

Jaiswal did not win the player of the match award in the IND vs ENG 3rd Test, but he put in a solid performance in the match and could’ve very well won the man of the match. Yashasvi played a fantastic knock of 214 runs in the 2nd innings of the match, putting the hosts in contention for series-leading win.

Hussain believed that England and Duckett ought to observe how Jaiswal executed the brilliant blow during the second innings.

“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,” Hussain told Michael Atherton on the Sky Sports podcast.

“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 criticise either within or externally. Even in this regime, there is room for learning and improving,” he added.
