Yashasvi Jaiswal got heaps of praises from the cricket pundits after his stunning performance in the recently concluded Indian Premier League.
“Yashasvi Jaiswal for me and by a long margin for sure. He is a young player and has got all the shots in the book. He has a calm and composed temperament at the wicket and I love what he does, dominating the bowlers and always looks like he is in control. Shubman is a little bit older, I think Jaiswal’s got a long way to go, and he has all the credentials to become a great,” aid AB de Villiers.
