Yashasvi Jaiswal “Learnt From His Upbringing, Not You”: England Great Blasts Star Player

Among the many performances that led to India’s win over England in Rajkot, star batter Yashasvi Jaiswal‘s was truly special. The left-handed opener became the first Indian to score two double-hundreds against England in Tests during the fourth day of the third Test match in Rajkot on Sunday. Jaiswal’s first double ton against England came in the second Test match in Visakhapatnam, where he scored 209 runs in India’s first innings. The 22-year-old’s second double hundred came in Rajkot when he played an unbeaten 214-run knock in the third Test match of the five-game series.

Jaiswal also smashed the most sixes in a Test series for India and became the first-ever player to hit 20 sixes in a Test series worldwide with 22 overhead boundaries against England in the ongoing series.

However, after Jaiswal had scored a ton, England star Ben Duckett made a strange comment. “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,” Duckett told the media during a press conference.

“We saw it a bit in the summer and it’s quite exciting to see other players and other teams are also playing that aggressive style of cricket. He looks like a superstar in the making, unfortunately, he’s in some very good form at the moment. He’s due a couple of low ones,” Duckett said while making a tongue-in-cheek remark.

Former England captain Nasser Hussain blasted that comment by the England star.

“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 had to 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 little bit of 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.”
